Winters, Sun & Schizophrenia

An abnormal social behavior and failure to understand what is real is termed as "Schizophrenia"

It is a mental disorder commonly characterized by false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, hearing voices, reduced social engagement and emotional expression, and a lack of motivation. It most commonly manifests itself as auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking, and it is accompanied by significant social or occupational dysfunction. Diagnosis is based on observed behaviour and the patient's reported experiences.

Researchers have found genetic disruptions occur at a crucial time in brain development, a finding the team hopes could pave the way for new treatment. Upon past research that uncovered 108 schizophrenia-related locations on the human genome by further linking this DNA with genes related to brain development. Genes which increase the risk for schizophrenia are most active during early fetal brain development.

Scientists are getting closer to understanding the wiring in the brain that gives schizophrenia patients auditory hallucinations. The research team was investigating whether low vitamin D could be linked to specific symptoms as well as to cognitive deficits in young patients. In both cases, a few hundred patients were studied; they showed a connection between vitamin D deficiency and negative symptoms and between the vitamin and “cognitive impairments in processing speed and verbal fluency.” Vitamin D has many benefits, one of them being promoting calcium absorption in the body, it is also crucial in cell and bone growth and in immune function. Because our bodies produce it when our skin is exposed to sunlight, people who spend a lot of time indoors can become deficient in the vitamin, a malady that is common — and even more so in the winter.
