As a psychologist, one must be able to properly understand, diagnose, and treat all
psychological disorders. During the interview process of any job, one must present their skills to
give the employer the confidence to make a wise choice of the candidate they feel will benefit
the company. Within this thesis we will be discussing the psychiatric disease of schizophrenia.
The areas that are to be covered are the areas of the brain affected, causal factors, symptoms,
neural basis, and appropriate drug therapy. Last I will interpret two case studies from a
biopsychologist’s perspective.
Part A
Out of all of the psychological disorders, schizophrenia is the most damaging and affects
nearly three million American’s. This disorder causes a person to lose all sense of reality which
causes one to have delusions, hallucinations, extreme suspicion, and symptoms vary between
men and women. The ages of which symptoms are experienced are late teens to early twenties in
men and late twenties to early thirties for women. While those who suffer from schizophrenia
may seem to make some progress in recovery, usually all will exhibit marked symptoms
throughout the course of their life.
While schizophrenia is considered to be a complex brain disorder, many things contribute to
the causes of this disorder. Genetics, behavioral, and developmental reasons are some of the
likely causes while stress, trauma, and viral infections are also thought to be involved in this
disorder. While it still is not clear why or how genetic predisposition is transmitted, suggestions
of recent evidence show that this disorder may result from the neurons in the brain form
inappropriate connections during fetal development (Lundbeck Institute, 2010).
