( Scientists map networks regulating gene function in the human brain
May 23rd 2024, 15:37

A consortium of researchers has produced the largest and most advanced multidimensional maps of gene regulation networks in the brains of people with and without mental disorders. These maps detail the many regulatory elements that coordinate the brain's biological pathways and cellular functions. The research used postmortem brain tissue from over 2,500 donors to map gene regulation networks across different stages of brain development and multiple brain-related disorders.

( Study explains why the brain can robustly recognize images, even without color
May 23rd 2024, 15:36

New research offers a possible explanation for how the brain learns to identify both color and black-and-white images. The researchers found evidence that early in life, when the retina is unable to process color information, the brain learns to distinguish objects based on luminance, rather than color.

( Study uncovers cell type-specific genetic insights underlying schizophrenia
May 23rd 2024, 15:36

New research provides a map for how the genes known to increase risk of schizophrenia affect specific cells within the brain -- information researchers hope can drive the development of new, effective treatments.

( One in two children with ADHD experience emotional problems
May 22nd 2024, 13:04

Scientists have shown that problems regulating emotions -- which can manifest as depression, anxiety and explosive outbursts -- may be a core symptom of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
