Scientists use genetic engineering to explore mechanisms involved in psychiatric disorders

Publicado em 13 maio 2021
Researchers used genetic engineering instruments to create a virus that may enter particular neurons and insert into the prefrontal cortex a brand new genetic code that induces the manufacturing of modified proteins. In exams with mice, the alteration of those proteins was ample to change mind exercise, indicating a possible biomarker for the prognosis of psychiatric issues resembling schizophrenia and autism. Generally known as the “govt mind,” the prefrontal cortex is the area [...]
