The Research of Schizophrenia

Being diagnosed with a schizoaffective disorder, I have not taken into account how much I have grown to learn about schizophrenia or its symptoms, both positive and "negative symptoms. As it stands, I was educated to understand I have positive symptoms, hallucinations and or delusions both auditory and ocular. Yet as I read this article "Mysteries of the Mind…" I find that there are negatives to the schizophrenic disorder as well, such as social withdrawal and or depression. As I took this into regard I also thought of other people who have the schizophrenic disorder and further reading I found that such people living with this disorder are not considered intelligent by any means yet having a high IQ and becoming ill with such the symptoms of schizophrenia, you may still be considered smart. There are brilliant people who suffer from schizophrenia yet many individuals were not given the chance to use their minds in any creative means to prove that they have a higher intellect, as opposed to others who are above the norm.
There are physical reasons stated as to why schizophrenics are as they are. There are neurons that don’t function within the brain, which are critical for the "thinking rhythm" though a schizophrenic has not the normal brain when living with such a disease.
As I continue to read about schizophrenics ability to think and learn, I begin to wonder what I would be like without medication, derisive, lost with the inability to solve any problems, the reading progressed, in time, I felt berated, underrated and inefficient at any of my own endeavors. I began to understand that as experiments proceed to help schizophrenics overcome malady, I learn that there is a lack of communication within the brain itself, which may cause the symptoms both positive and negative and the learning and memory of any patient disorganized.
These are physical symptoms and there may be no real physical cure for the disease, though scientists have hope as many people have that a cure can be found. Mental illness such as schizophrenia isn’t the only illness which may cause disruption of thought, yet it can be understood through many years of observation and research that it is harder for those diagnosed with schizophrenia to learn because of their mental distraction and the delusions they suffer from. There are new drugs which are in the trial stage which help control the depression and lack of energy in such the mentally ill , yet as researchers stated, it is a complex illness "which affects the most complex biological organism in the known universe…".
