this is fantastic. i worked in sohee park's schizophrenia/affective disorder lab for a year. she uses the tools of clinical neuroscience to understand 1) how the perceptual/cognitive difficulties found in schizophrenia affect people and 2) how the shizotypal personality (perhaps, people at-risk for the illness) functions in terms of creativity. the only thing i wish i had seen more of in this comic is a mention of famous people who likely/had schizophrenia. it would offset the debilitating degree of the illness.

also, medication definitely helps these individuals, but, as with any major mental illness, a large proportion will go off medication due to side-effects. but you're so right--functionality improves drastically WHILE medicated.
