Schizophrenia and the Genetic Discovery
The story of the schizophrenia discovery was reported on Reddit. Scientists have discovered information regarding a molecular process within the brain that may help to trigger schizophrenia. There was a landmark study led by Jon Urbana that had been published in Bloomberg and the Nature journal. This was published on Wednesday. There is a genetic pathway that may reveal exactly what it is, that goes wrong neurologically. This may be for those young individuals who get diagnosed with this life-shattering disorder.

A Potential for Early Detection
A year ago, there was not a way to use early detection for schizophrenia. There were not even any new treatments available. There is now a potential for the early detection of schizophrenia. Steven Hyman is the director of the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research. He has made the claim that this current study on schizophrenia is quite significant. These new findings leave many in the psychiatric field feeling positive regarding the results and the new information. There has now been a breakthrough that enables the researchers to take a closer look inside of this disorder.
