A recent study has demonstrated that there are substantial similarities in the structural phenotypes of different neuropsychiatric disorders. Furthermore, they […]
Around 25% of the world is affected by a psychiatric disorder that can alter their behaviour, social relations and intellectual ability.
Since completing my PhD, I have been using genetics to try to understand complex diseases. Much of my career has […]

A recent study, published in NeuroResource, has used single-nucleus transcriptome analysis to identify cell-type-specific molecular signatures in the brain that […]
An international team has studied the genomes of more than 20,000 individuals, shedding light on the genetic links between eating […]
A recent study, published in The American Journal of Psychiatry, has shed light on the mechanisms behind the brain’s response to stress in those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and major depressive disorder (MDD). The implications of this study are far-reaching, from improving our understanding of the cellular and molecular basis of PTSD and MDD to potentially revolutionizing the diagnosis and treatment of these challenging neuropsychiatric disorders. The findings open up exciting avenues for further research, personalized medicine, and the development of targeted therapeutic interventions.
With the ever-increasing potential of new technology and the exponential growth of the life sciences field, researchers are always running […]
