Schizophrenia: Although there are no specific electroencephalographic findings in schizophrenia, most studies do show that these patients have more abnormalities than are found in healthy control subjects. Abnormal electroencephalograms have been described in up to 80% of schizophrenic patients. (Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, Yudofsky, Hales, 2002 AD, p 206)
Comment: Brain abnormalities in imaging are the result of how psychiatric drugs cause notable brain damage.
