Scientists have developed a technique for schizophrenia, which boasts almost 100% accuracy, writes The Daily Mail. Thus, experts suggest looking into your eyes. According to them, in violation of eye movement indicates a problem of mentality.

Theory employees of the University of Aberdeen tested on a group of volunteers. The result were diagnosed with an accuracy equal to 98%. Schizophrenics could hardly smooth track slowly moving objects. Look not constantly keep up with the subject, and then again caught the eye moving object by saccades – rapid, coordinated eye movements occurring simultaneously in the same direction.

According to Dr. Philip Benson and Professor David Senklera, during work, they tested the ability to monitor the subject and the way people visually evaluated images and situations. Also had a job to fixation. For example, when evaluating the image most people have the same sequence of eye movements. But schizophrenics noted the unique scheme.

And when I had to fix the mind, people with schizophrenia were given this task difficult. Now scientists have to figure out whether you can use this method to identify schizophrenia in its early stages.
