To address the receptor dysfunction associated with several neurological diseases, scientists have provided novel insights into a protein-protein interaction that could lead to more effective treatments.
Using brain scans, a study has shown that schizophrenia patients have lower levels of the protein SV2A in their brains which presents a drug target.
Scientists have revealed new findings about the neural circuit involved in the reward stimulus, which plays a major role in drug dependence and psychological disorders.
Scientists have shown that the mutated CUL3 gene, which is involved in the cell’s clearance of proteins, plays a role in the development of autism and schizophrenia in mice.
Whole exome sequencing has been used by researchers to reveal 10 genes implicated in the development of schizophrenia.
Researchers in the US have devised a new way to clearly image proteins located in synapses, which they hope will faciliate future treatment for diseases associated with blocked gene expression.
Using mice models in late adolescence, researchers have successfully treated schizophrenia which could help develop therapies for the condition.
A new study found that betaine supplementations given to mice reduced schizophrenic behaviours, indicating a drug target.
Researchers have identified new genes associated with schizophrenia and pinpointed the areas of the brain in which abnormal expression might occur...
Genetic variants which prevent a neurotransmitter receptor from working properly have been implicated in the development of schizophrenia...
Restoring brain cell receptors helps restore normal behaviour...
In a study that might enable earlier diagnosis, neuroscientists find abnormal brain connections that can predict the onset of psychotic episodes...
