Large Gene Expression Study Sheds Light on Causal Factors in Five Brain Disorders
6-Apr-2018: By: Daniel Geschwind, M.D., Ph.D.
Researchers studying gene expression in cerebral cortex tissue sampled from postmortem brains have identified patterns of shared and distinct gene expression patterns in autism, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and alcoholism. The results, published February 9 in Science, offer a unique glimpse at genome-wide, disorder-related molecular signatures that could help fine-tune diagnosis and treatment for these illnesses.
