UCSD researchers have developed a single cell sequencing method that can map the cellular origin of a wide variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
Researchers report they are able to see alterations in gene expression up to two hours after a stickleback fish interacts with an intruder. They speculate the changes in gene expression and chromatin modification could help set up the brain to respond to future threats. The study appears in PLOS Genetics.
Researchers have identified the activity of a genetic network that responds to social stress in mice.
Researchers report sticking to a very low carb diet could potentially help to improve mental function in those with Kabuki syndrome, a rare, inherited disease.
Researchers have succeeded in inducing one species of flatworm to grow heads and brains characteristic of another species of flatworm without altering genomic sequence.
Researchers report they have used an anti cancer drug to improve mental function in mice with genetic changes similar to those found in Kabuki syndrome.
