Schizophrenia

Positive Mind Care and Research Centre is a leading mental health care  facility of Delhi – NCR, dedicated to helping individuals to overcome Major Depressive Disorder and reclaim their joyful lives through a unique breakthrough technology called Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS), which can reach significant depth and breadth of the brain and produce broad stimulation and functional modulation of targeted brain areas to help treat MDD.

Deep TMS treatment features unique, patented coils that are fitted into a helmet, which is secured snugly to the patient’s head during the treatment. We are using BrainsWay’s therapy, which has been utilized in over 60 clinical trials worldwide. The company’s device has been FDA approved for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) since 2013, FDA cleared (De-Novo) for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) since 2018, FDA cleared as an aid for short-term Smoking Cessation since 2020, and has now received an expanded indication for Anxious Depression.

What is Schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a complex and chronic mental disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. It is classified as a psychotic disorder, meaning individuals with schizophrenia often experience a disconnection from reality. The exact cause of schizophrenia is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and neurobiological factors.

Schizophrenia usually emerges in late adolescence or early adulthood and can be a lifelong condition. The symptoms and severity can vary among individuals, and the course of the disorder may involve periods of remission and relapse.

Diagnosis and treatment are typically carried out by mental health professionals, including psychiatrists and psychologists. Treatment often involves a combination of antipsychotic medications, psychosocial interventions (such as psychotherapy and social support), and sometimes rehabilitation programs to help individuals manage their symptoms, improve daily functioning, and enhance their overall quality of life.

It’s essential to seek professional help if someone is showing signs of schizophrenia or any mental health concerns. Early intervention can lead to better outcomes and improved long-term management of the disorder.

SCHIZOPHRENIA DEMOGRAPHICS

According to the World Health Organisation, Schizophrenia affects approximately 1 in 300 people.

SYMPTOMS

Schizophrenia is a severe and chronic mental disorder that affects a person’s thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Its symptoms can be divided into three main categories: positive symptoms, negative symptoms, and cognitive symptoms.

Positive symptoms (psychotic symptoms)
  • Hallucinations: Hearing, seeing, feeling, or smelling things that are not real. Auditory hallucinations (hearing voices) are the most common.
  • Delusions: False beliefs that are not based on reality, often involving paranoia or grandiosity.
  • Disorganized thinking: Exhibiting incoherent or illogical thoughts, speech, or behavior.
  • Disorganized or abnormal motor behavior: Displaying unusual or unpredictable movements, including agitation or catatonia (immobility). 
Negative symptoms (deficits in normal functioning)
  • Affective flattening: Reduced range and intensity of emotional expression.
  • Alogia: Reduced speech output and difficulty conveying thoughts.
  • Avolition: Decreased motivation to initiate or sustain goal-directed activities.
  • Anhedonia: Diminished ability to experience pleasure in activities that were once enjoyable.
  • Social withdrawal: Reduced interest in social interactions and relationships.
Cognitive symptoms
  • Impaired memory and attention: Difficulty in focusing and remembering information.
  • Poor executive functioning: Struggling to plan, organize, and manage daily tasks effectively.

The onset of schizophrenia typically occurs in late adolescence or early adulthood, and the symptoms can be chronic and relapsing. It’s important to note that the presentation of schizophrenia can vary widely among individuals, and not everyone will experience all of the symptoms mentioned above.

How does Deep TMS Work ?

Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that has been studied as a potential treatment for various neuropsychiatric conditions, including smoking addiction. While the research in this area is still ongoing, Deep TMS has shown some promising results in helping individuals with smoking addiction. Here’s how Deep TMS may help in treating smoking addiction:

  • Targeting Reward and Craving Pathways: Deep TMS can be applied to specific brain regions associated with reward processing and cravings, such as the prefrontal cortex and the insula. These brain areas play a role in the reinforcement and motivation aspects of addiction, including smoking.
  • Reducing Cravings and Withdrawal Symptoms: By stimulating targeted brain regions, Deep TMS may help reduce cravings for nicotine and alleviate withdrawal symptoms that individuals experience when trying to quit smoking.
  • Modulating Neurotransmitters: Deep TMS can influence the release and activity of neurotransmitters in the brain, such as dopamine and serotonin, which are involved in the reward system. By modulating these neurotransmitters, Deep TMS may impact the pleasure and reinforcement associated with smoking.
  • Enhancing Self-Control and Decision-Making: Some research suggests that Deep TMS may improve cognitive functions related to self-control and decision-making. Strengthening these abilities can be beneficial in resisting the urge to smoke and making healthier choices.
  • Long-Term Effects on Craving Reduction: Studies have shown that Deep TMS sessions can lead to long-lasting effects on reducing cravings, making it a potential treatment option for maintaining abstinence from smoking in the long term.
  • Personalized Treatment: Deep TMS allows for individualized treatment by targeting specific brain regions relevant to each person’s smoking addiction. This personalized approach may lead to more effective outcomes.
