Disrupted genetic clocks in schizophrenia-affected brains reveal clues to the disease

Gene expression rhythms in the brains of those with schizophrenia are highly disrupted a new study reports. The expression of genes is significantly different in those with schizophrenia who died at night compared to the general population. The findings provide new insight into a potential mechanism that underlies gene expression in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in those with schizophrenia.... Read More...
