Researchers have identified 44 genetic risk factors for major depressive disorder. 30 of the variants are newly discovered. The team reports the genetic basis for MDD is shared with other psychological disorders and all humans carry some of the genetic risk factors identified.
Researchers have identified one specific microRNA that has strong links to a number of neuropsychiatric disorders, including autism spectrum disorder.
A new mouse study reveals pups of mothers who faced prenatal stress and who were exposed, by birth, to maternal vaginal microbiota had decreased body weight and exhibited increased stress hormones as adults.
Transplanted stem cells help build a 'biobridge' which links uninjured brain regions to those damaged as a result of TBI, a new study shows.
Researchers have developed a new protein that can alter DNA in living cells with much higher precision than current methods.
