Man With Catatonic Schizophrenia (1961)

Post by Kitty »

A fascinating talk with a man with catatonic schizophrenia in 1961. I wish I could see the rest of this interview.

Quite interesting. Those types of distortions are a really hard thing to understand. And he appears to be very intelligent, precise, and articulate in his speech, but the processing time is slowed way down—I guess that's part of the condition. I hope they were able to help him. :(

Yes. This must be a rare condition.
