The Japanese tradition of Buddhism does not feature original sin so heavily as Western Christianity, and more Japanese individuals tend to be irreligious. In contrast, Japanese patients were more likely to have delusions related to persecution by others, such as being slandered by coworkers.
This, the researchers believed, was due to the larger presence of a shaming culture in Japan. In keeping with these findings, another study found that Austrians had significantly more religious delusions than Pakistanis. Delusions of persecution were just as common among the two groups, but Pakistanis tended to believe their families were the source of the persecution more often, which is probably due to the stronger familial ties Pakistanis have in comparison with Austrians.
If anything, these studies highlight how strongly our culture contributes to our identities. An illness as profound as schizophrenia does not exist in a vacuum; it works on our minds, and our minds are the product of our larger cultural context.

Africa is home to the rivers with the world's second- and third-largest catchment areas: the Congo in blue , with a basin of 1. The Nile is the longest river in Africa, though 4, miles; 6, km , followed by the Congo: 2, miles 4, km.
The Congo River's alternative name, Zaire, comes from the Kikongo nzadi o nzere 'river swallowing rivers'. The Volga in yellow is the river with the biggest catchment area in Europe just under , square miles; 1.
It flows exclusively through Russia, and the catchment area is entirely within Russia as well. Europe's number two is the Danube in orange , which flows through 10 countries — more than any other river in the world. Its drainage basin just over , square miles; almost , km2 includes nine more countries.
Image: Grasshopper Geography. The hydrographic map of Germany is dominated by just four major drainage systems: the Danube in orange in the south, the Rhine in blue in the west, the Elbe in purple in the east and the Weser in green between the latter two. Rome once attempted to shift the border to the Elbe, which would have radically altered the course of history, but it suffered a massive defeat in 9 CE at the Teutoburger Wald roughly between both rivers.
Both Ireland and Great Britain are islands, as a result of which neither boasts a continental-class river. Twenty of the 30 longest British rivers are less than miles km long. The longest river in Britain is the Severn miles, km , its catchment area shown in blue in the southwest. Ireland's longest river is the Shannon miles, km. Even combined they're not as long as France's Seine miles, km. Spread-eagled across the central part of the United States, the Mississippi's drainage basin covers all or parts of 32 U.

Microscopic studies of brain tissue after death have also shown small changes in distribution or number of brain cells in people with schizophrenia. It appears that many but probably not all of these changes are present before an individual becomes ill, and schizophrenia may be, in part, a disorder in brain development.
These faulty connections may lie dormant until puberty. During puberty, the brain is undergoing many changes in its development. There may be ways to identify prenatal factors that may help us eventually inoculate or otherwise prevent these connections from occurring. Janicak, P.
