Neuroimaging study reveals decreased levels of the SV2A protein in synapses in patients with schizophrenia. The decrease in the protein could underlie the cognitive difficulties experienced by those with schizophrenia and provide new targets for treatment.
A new imaging technique may provide researchers with better insights into neurological disorders.
Researchers have identified key molecular pathways which lead to late-onset Alzheimer's disease. The study presents a new approach to Alzheimer's research and highlights several potential drug targets.
