No blind schizophrenics: Are NMDA-receptor dynamics involved?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (1):103-104 (2003)

Abstract
Numerous searches have failed to identify a single co-occurrence of total blindness and schizophrenia. Evidence that blindness causes loss of certain NMDA-receptor functions is balanced by reports of compensatory gains. Connections between visual and anterior cingulate NMDA-receptor systems may help to explain how blindness could protect against schizophrenia.
