A gene mutation associated with schizophrenia and depression may contribute to disease by damaging the brain's "wiring" during early development, a finding that sheds light on the poorly understood causes of these conditions.
Most cells don't divide unless there is enough oxygen to support the new ones — but certain cancer cells circumvent this rule. Researchers have identified a mechanism that now enables cells to multiply, even if there isn't a robust blood supply.
Researchers have mapped part of the brain using a new technique that could lead to better ways of treating hearing loss.
Can a simple blood test help identify at-risk individuals? Researchers have zeroed in on a single gene that can indicate risk — and testing for it could help prevent future crises.
