Break It Down: Schizophrenia
Georgia Tech researchers hope to get a clearer picture of what schizophrenia does to the brain. Two biomedical engineers there have developed a tool to simulate the brain's reaction to schizophrenia. With about one percent of Americans living with the condition, schizophrenia is more common in movies and TV than real life. So for some of us, what we know about the disorder mostly comes from the silver screen. We break down what schizophrenia means, and we learn more about the condition from Robert Cotes, an assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Emory University.
