More than two million people in the United States have a diagnosis of schizophrenia. For the last half century, until even now, the treatment for most has consisted mainly of strong doses of antipsychotic drugs that blunt hallucinations and delusions but come with significant and unpleasant side effects. Now, there has been remarkable research leading to what will be a revolution in understanding and treating this debilitating mental illness. In part one of this three part program, we interview first, a neuropsychologist who reports on new neurodevelopmental models of etiology, showing that many risk factors can give rise to schizophrenia and to the psychosis-spectrum disorders.
