Chandley, M. J., M. N. Miller, et al. (2009). “Increased antibodies for the alpha7 subunit of the nicotinic receptor in schizophrenia.” Schizophr Res109(1-3): 98-101
Many association studies show that acetylcholinereceptors such as nicotinicreceptors or muscarinic receptors are related to schizophrenia.(Freedman, Leonard et al. 2001)
Alpha 7 CNS nicotinic acetylcholine receptor is a widely accepted gene linking to schizophrenia. In postmortem studies, the acetylcholine receptor numbers are severely decreased in schizophrenia patients.(Gault, Hopkins et al. 2003)
so, if you’re immune system heats up, like if you’re sick, you are emotionally upset, you are hot, you exercise too much, your immune system triggers your psychosis.
