Early Signs of Schizophrenia in Child’s Brain Identified

Scientists are reported to have identified what they are expecting could be associated to the early signs of schizophrenia in the child’s brains just after birth.

According to the researchers, the discovery could assist in earlier unveiling of the mental disorder in children and pave way to ponder over new methods of prevention and treatment.

It is reported that major cases of schizophrenia are usually not diagnosed until a person begins witnessing its related symptoms like delusions and hallucinations as a teenager or adult.

However, by that time, the disease crosses the stage of preliminary treatment and is difficult to treat.

The study lead, John H. Gilmore, Professor of psychiatry and Director of the UNC Schizophrenia Research Center, quoted, "It allows us to start thinking about how we can identify kids at risk for schizophrenia very early and whether there things that we can do very early on to lessen the risk".

The research involved ultrasound and MRI in order to analyze brain development in 26 babies born to mothers suffering from schizophrenia.

The study, published online by the American Journal of Psychiatry outlined that among boys, babies at boosted risk had larger brains and larger lateral ventricles-fluid-filled spaces in the brain. However, it is not necessary that boys with larger brains are at a risk of developing schizophrenia.
