Schizophrenia

The image shows the brain activation in children with a family history of schizophrenia, who are themselves at greater risk for developing schizophrenia.

Alterations in Brain Activity in Children at Risk of Schizophrenia Predate Onset of Symptoms

A new study reveals neural circuitry is hyperactivated by performing certain tasks for children with a family history of schizophrenia, compare to peers without this family history. As the differences in brain function appear prior to the onset of psychiatric symptoms, researchers believe the findings could point to vulnerability markers for schizophrenia.... Read More...

Genome-Wide Atlas of Gene Enhancers in the Brain On-line

Future research into the underlying causes of neurological disorders such as autism, epilepsy and schizophrenia, should greatly benefit from a first-of-its-kind atlas of gene-enhancers in the cerebrum (telencephalon). This new atlas identifies and locates thousands of gene-regulating elements in a region of the brain that is of critical importance for cognition, motor functions and emotion.... Read More...
