Schizophrenia affects a person's ability to think clearly and distinguish between reality and imagination. Historically, those suffering with the condition were treated poorly. However, scientific discoveries regarding the chemistry and structure of the brain, as well as recent advancements in medication and therapeutic treatments for the disease, have allowed many who suffer from schizophrenia to lead rewarding and meaningful lives. The informative text, augmented by in-depth sidebars, quotes from medical experts, detailed graphs, and full-color photographs, offers readers a clearer understanding of this often misunderstood condition and provides helpful resources to aid people with schizophrenia and their loved ones.
