Diaschisis was first defined by von Monakow as "abolition of excitability" and "functional standstill" in the 1870's, and Baron et al.
El inicio tardio de la LDM se ha propuesto como un modelo de esquizofrenia, debido a que ambos trastornos se caracterizan por signos de desconexion anatomica generalizada y alteracion funcional secundaria que evidencia una lesion extensa en los circuitos frontales subcorticales, los cuales se manifiestan en sintomas del estado de animo, motivacion, alteracion en el comportamiento, juicio y planeacion (1), que hace pensar en el concepto de diasquisis acunado por Monakow (1914), resurgido recientemente, en la cual se aprecian trastornos neurofisiologicos distantes de la lesion focal cerebral (3).

This was explained by the "Phenomenon of cortical subcortical diaschisis" (7).This refers to functional deactivation of morphologically intact subcortical brain region remote from but connected to an area of cortical primary structural damage and also due to interruption of neural connections between cortical and subcortical structures according to Von Monakow study in 1914.
In 1895, Monakow suggested the mediodorsal thalamic nucleus (MD) was linked to the cognitive and emotional life of an individual (Monakow et al., 1895) and for many decades the MD has been the focus of attention in the search for specific underlying pathology to the schizophrenic illness (Baumer, 1954).
