Special Issue on Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a chronic mental disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. It is a complex condition that impacts a person's perception of reality, often leading to difficulties in distinguishing what is real from what is not. The exact cause of schizophrenia is still unknown, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and neurochemical factors.

In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring Schizophrenia. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Mental disorder
  • Chronic condition
  • Hallucinations
  • Delusions
  • Disorganized thinking
  • Positive symptoms
  • Negative symptoms
  • Cognitive symptoms
  • Genetic factors
  • Environmental factors
  • Neurochemical factors
  • Late adolescence/early adulthood onset
  • Medication
  • Psychosocial interventions
  • Antipsychotic medications
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Family therapy
