Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by persistent defects in the perception or the expression of reality.

A person experiencing untreated schizophrenia typically demonstrates disorganized thinking, and may also experience delusions or auditory hallucinations.

Although the disorder primarily affects cognition, it can also contribute to chronic problems with behavior or emotions.
