Schizophrenia symptoms eliminated in a mouse model

(May 23, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Georgia - Scientists have eliminated schizophrenia symptoms in a mouse model, according to a report published in Neuron. Researchers genetically altered mice to develop overexpression of a gene known to be associated with schizophrenia. When this gene was elevated, the mice were hyperactive, could not retain things they had just learned, and could not ignore background noise. When researchers returned the gene's levels to normal, the rodents no longer demonstrated these symptoms.
