What Is CatatonicSchizophrenia?

By , black-rose-bielefeld.de Guide

Definition:

Catatonic schizophrenia is type of schizophrenia marked by symptoms such as rigidity, stupor, excitement or mania. There are two types of behaviors typically displayed: excitement or stupor. Those experiencing catatonic excitement will exhibit manic behaviors such as babbling or speaking incoherently, while those experience catatonic stupor remain in a stupor for extended periods of time. Because this type of schizophrenia is characterized by motor symptoms, it is sometimes mistaken for a psychotic mood disorder.
