Scientists have discovered area in the brain for targeted treatment in schizophrenia patients that “hear voices”

Scientists have precisely identified and targeted an area of the brain which is involved in “hearing voices,” experienced by many patients with schizophrenia. Results from a controlled trial that target this area with magnetic pulses can improve the condition in some patients. “This is the first controlled trial to precisely determine an anatomically defined brain

New antibodies target protein structures found in various neurological diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

A study led by researchers from NYU School of Medicine has found a new type of antibody can target a feature shared by proteins thought to cause the most damage in Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and related conditions, helping to create potential for a unified treatment approach. The study is based on decades of work

AI algorithm developed to study human aging process

Insilico Medicine, a biotech based in Baltimore, develops advanced artificial intelligence algorithms to study the ageing processes and discover new interventions in ageing. Many of these molecules aim to induce the expression of certain genes involved in the endogenous repair processes to slow down and even reverse some of the aging-associated diseases. By applying a
