3. The Englemann study is interesting

But until some firmer evidence is found I'll regard it with skepticism.

My personal thought is that schizophrenia involves a whole suite of cognitive and perceptive defects and corruptions of normal brain functions and Misperception of time together with misattribution of sources probably plays some part in this terrible illness. Current meds can assist the sufferer but few mechanisms of action are known and the side effects are only marginally more tolerable than the illness itself.
