Michigan State Awarded $1.5 M in Research Funding to Find Cause of Psychosis

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Fri, Apr 06, 2018

When an individual loses touch with reality and sees, hears, or believes things that aren’t real it is referred to as a psychosis. People suffering a psychotic episode often experience the delusion that their actions are being controlled by others, such as the government or aliens.
