Schizophrenia Definition Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe mental disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. People with schizophrenia may seem like they have lost touch with reality. Although schizophrenia is not as common as other mental disorders, the symptoms can be very disabling. Signs and Symptoms Symptoms of schizophrenia usually start between ages 16 and 30. The symptoms of schizophrenia fall into three categories: positive, negative, and cognitive. Positive symptoms: “Positive” symptoms are psychotic behaviors not generally seen in healthy people. HallucinationsDelusionsThought disorders (unusual or dysfunctional ways of thinking)Movement disorders (agitated body movements) Negative symptoms: “Negative” symptoms are associated with disruptions to normal emotions and behaviors. “Flat affect” (reduced expression of emotions via facial expression or voice tone)Reduced feelings of pleasure in everyday lifeDifficulty beginning and sustaining activitiesReduced speaking

Nature Publishing Group : science journals, jobs, and information Neuroscience Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system.[1] Traditionally, neuroscience has been seen as a branch of biology. However, it is currently an interdisciplinary science that collaborates with other fields such as chemistry, computer science, engineering, linguistics, mathematics, medicine and allied disciplines, philosophy, physics, and psychology. It also exerts influence on other fields, such as neuroeducation[2] and neurolaw. The term neurobiology is usually used interchangeably with the term neuroscience, although the former refers specifically to the biology of the nervous system, whereas the latter refers to the entire science of the nervous system. Because of the increasing number of scientists who study the nervous system, several prominent neuroscience organizations have been formed to provide a forum to all neuroscientists and educators. History[edit] The study of the nervous system dates back to ancient Egypt. Modern neuroscience[edit] Human nervous system

Molecular and Integrative Physiology (PIBS), Rackham Graduate School, University of Michigan Details The Program in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Michigan is an interdisciplinary gateway program that coordinates admissions and the first year of Ph.D. studies for 14 department programs, including Molecular and Integrative Physiology. PIBS offers you the flexibility and convenience of applying to any of our participating programs through one application. We invite you to thoroughly explore Physiology and the other 13 programs before selecting your top preferences when you apply. Program Overview The Department of Physiology was established over 125 years ago and is among the oldest physiology departments in the country. In 2002, the department's name was changed to Molecular and Integrative Physiology (MIP) to more completely reflect our mission and the nature of our work. Our department has a storied history and a strong tradition for outstanding leadership in teaching, research and graduate education.

Science General Systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge The Universe represented as multiple disk-shaped slices across time, which passes from left to right Science (from Latin scientia 'knowledge')[1] is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.[2][3][4] History Science in a broad sense existed before the modern era and in many historical civilizations.[38] Modern science is distinct in its approach and successful in its results, so it now defines what science is in the strictest sense of the term.[3][5][39] Science in its original sense was a word for a type of knowledge, rather than a specialized word for the pursuit of such knowledge. Earliest roots Clay models of animal livers dating between the nineteenth and eighteenth centuries BCE, found in the royal palace in Mari, Syria Classical antiquity In classical antiquity, there is no real ancient analog of a modern scientist.
