Schizophrenia is a brain disorder with lifetime prevalence near 1%.1 This disorder is clinically manifested by psychotic, negative, and cognitive symptoms that typically emerge in adolescence and early adulthood (peak age for males, 20 years; for females, 25 years) and follows a course characterized by recurrent exacerbations and remissions, resulting in a chronic state of residual symptoms and functional impairment.1
