‘Eighty new genes tied to schizophrenia’

Researchers have pinpointed over 80 genes that could be associated with the risk of developing the mental disorder, schizophrenia. As the world’s largest genetic study of the disease, the recent investigation has led the researchers to a new approach to the illness. Scientists examined the genetic make-up of more than 37,000 people with schizophrenia and [&hellip

Scientists find clues to brain’s wiring

A group of researchers at Washington University School of Medicine have discovered proteins that program a common type of brain nerve cell. The findings also unveiled that how the newly discovered group of proteins in connection with another type of nerve cell in the brain could cause brain developing. The research team focused on studying [&hellip

Scientists developing natural pacemaker

Experimenting on pigs, scientists have injected the animals’ hearts with a gene, which goes on to develop some of heart’s muscles into a natural pacemaker. The trials are being attempted with an eye on the development of biological pacemaker, hoped to eventually supplant electrical pacemakers. The natural entity in the body, which regulates the heart’s [&hellip

Smell, eye tests may indicate dementia

Smell, eye tests may indicate dementia

Smell and eye examinations can indicate loss of brain cell function and progression to Alzheimer’s disease, new research suggests. Degenerated ability to identify odors can help indicating the development of decline in cognitive capacity of the brain and Alzheimer’s disease, researchers clarified. They also revealed that the level of beta-amyloid detected in the eye was [&hellip

‘Friends may have similar genomes’

A new study conducted by the researchers at two American universities claims that friends resemble each other genetically. The study that carried out at the University of California, San Diego, and Yale University revealed genetic similarities among friends. Researchers took a genome-wide analysis of some 1.5 million markers of gene variation through applying data from [&hellip

Coffee can ward off Parkinson’s

Coffee can ward off Parkinson’s

A new research has demonstrated that drinking coffee could reduce risk of developing several neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s. Researchers identified a specific genetic variation (GRIN2A gene) as a protective factor against Parkinson’s. Researchers at the Linkoping University in Sweden examined a combination of the protective factor caffeine and the genetic variant in GRIN2A among [&hellip
