The Effect of Theory of Mind Capacities of Mothers of Patients with Schizophrenia on the Severity of the Diseases.

DISCUSSION: The significant difference between the groups suggests that the impairment in the function of the theory of mind can be regarded as an endo-phenotype for schizophrenia. The low theory of mind capacities of the mothers of schizophrenia patients can cause the mothers to misunderstand the feelings of their patient which could lead to increase in disease severity and drugs use.

We report a longitudinal behavioral study in a methylazoxymethanol acetate (MAM) rat model of schizophrenia at three different age periods: prepuberty, late-puberty and early-adulthood. MAM-treated rats showed stable hypolocomotive activity, anxiety and cognitive deficits from late-puberty to early-adulthood. Therefore we detected the metabolites changes of adult MAM-treated rats using an in vitro proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR) method. In the MAM-treated rats, glutamate was increased in the thalamus and hypothalamus, glutamine was increased in the hippocampus and GABA was increased in the hippocampus and prefro...
