About “A Beautiful Mind”


A few days ago I posted a question using some scenes of the movie “A Beautiful Mind” (“A question with a video clip“) 


The answer for that question can be seen in the updated Biochemistry at the Movies Page, where the use of Insulin Shock Therapy, or Insulin Coma Therapy (ICT) that appears in this movie, is described.  John Nash, the Nobel Prize whose battle with schizophrenia was the base of the movie, tells his experience with ICT, but also Leonard Franks, an activist against Insulin Shock Therapy and other psychiatric procedures presents his opinions as a “psychiatric survivor”, about these therapies, that has been abandoned already by the mainstream psychiatry.  Some links to articles with relevant information about ICT have been included in the post


I invite you to visit “A Beautiful Mind: Hypoglycemia and Insulin Coma Therapy” at the Biochemistry at the Movies Page.
