Default News from Nottingham: The Schizophrenia Switch has been found

this seems to be pretty big.

quick summary: if you're schizophrenic then you're just as healthy as the rest of us, except for your ability to smoothly switch from the inner world to the outer world... specifically from one brain region to another.

the sheriff of nottingham in this case seems to be a SINGLE GENE.

whether or not this ever gets 'solved' by a drug, there seems to be two remedies right here, right now: magnets and meditation!

Interesting... I don't see how applicable that magnet thing is in day to day life but its cool. The meditation seems more realistic. For people with sever issues I don't k ow what to say... They are so into their own minds they can't decipher what is real. Part of me wonders if those people aren't just more tuned in though... Hyper sensitive to thoughts. I wonder if some ego death experiences wouldn't help some if these people though. I figure it would either help or freak them out to no end. One must accept the liberation of death though in order to accept that the mind is not all powerful.

nice thoughts. i remember joseph campbell talking about schizophrenia being a common element among shamans. almost sounded like you canít become a shaman unless you have a full episode and manage to make it back out. something like that.

that ego death thing amongst schizophrenics is a fascinating issue... i am going to have to give that a lot of attention some day.

I've seen a lecture on this topic, where a stanford neurosicentist is talking about schizotypal disorder as kind of an advantegeous trait to have in tribal communities for exactly this reason. He's making a similar case for OCD, pointing out repetitive rituals in many religions btw. Interesting stuff

I remember hearing on some talk show that schizo is caused by gluten. The journalist mentioned that a tribal region in south america where people mainly consumed corn instead of wheat, there were no recorded cases of schizo. I have no idea if true, havent looked for confirmation. Thought it was an interesting theory.
