Catatonia: Actually the state of catatonia, at least today, is more common in affective disorders rather than schizophrenia. Nobody really knows why someone develops catatonic schizophrenia or any of the other subtypes. Research indicates most forms of schizophrenia are caused by brain dysfunction; but we understand yet why that brain dysfunction occurs.
