* There are many schools of thought about what causes schizophrenia, a calamitous illness that afflicts 2.3 million people in the United States alone. Most researchers believe that an abnormality in fetal brain development is the main culprit. As the infant’s brain is forming, important nerve cells migrate to the wrong place. Miswired, the brain then develops the altered reality of schizophrenia. But what causes neurons to move out of place? Some think the ultimate cause is genetic; others say it’s environmental, caused by a mother catching a virus during critical months of pregnancy.
