PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

This must be the strangest paper I have read so far. As I thought everyone knows, all the antipsychotics are NEUROTOXIC, not neuroprotective, hence the millions of sufferers of acute and tardive motor dysfunctions, not to mention tardive dementia, caused by them.

Why do the authors consider schizophrenia is caused by something modelled by growth medium deficiency, and if so would it not suggest attempts to reverse the deficiency as more likely to be therapeutic?
