Lecture 15 Schizophrenia: A film "Madness": Part 7 of the public television series The Brain, 1984, Educational Broadcasting Corporation. "Investigations by neuroscientists reveal that many forms of mental illness may result from alterations in normal brain functioning. A psychosis is often accompanied by shifts in neurotransmitter balances or changes in the brain's electrical patterns. Can mental illness be explained on the basis of changes within the brain? Neuroscientists are at the point where answers to such questions may soon be possible" (description from the book accompanying the series, The Brain by R. Restak).
