Schizophrenia in the Movie "a Beautiful Mind"
However, for an individual to fit the criteria for paranoid schizophrenia he/she must not experience disordered vocalization or any kind of negative symptoms. Catatonic schizophrenia mainly involves movement irregularities, alogia, and echolalia ( repetition of words that are spoken by another individual).
Although the scenes may not always accurately depict what specifically happened to John Nash, they still portray ideas and facts about schizophrenia.
