If you still believe, that "schizophrenia" causes brain shrinkage... can get wiser reading Ron Unger's latest blog entry.

The question remains, whether these research results will have any greater impact on future treatment - and if so in which way: will real alternatives be made available, or will we just be presented with "newer and safer medications", as we already know them all too well? - or whether they'll be brushed under the rug, downplayed, and distorted, as we have seen it been done with equally "inconvenient" results so many times before?
