Brain Scans Reveal How Gene May Boost Schizophrenia Risk

...orly on such tasks. Earlier studies had shown that inheriting two copies of the more common val version leads to a slightly higher risk for schizophrenia and a signature pattern of midbrain dopamine activity.** To see how the two gene versions affect the living human brain, the NIMH researchers scanned 24 heal...

Inheriting a tendency to brain infection

...--and were therefore at higher than normal risk of inheriting two copies of a faulty gene. In 2005, Casanova later identified a 15-year-old boy who developed brain damage due to herpes simplex infection. Casanova found that the boy's blood cells failed to produce an important immune signalling molecule, type...

Parental genes do what's best for baby

...undermine the natural benefits organisms gain from inheriting two sets of genes. If one copy of a gene is damaged, for instance, then the second copy can compensate; imprinted genes lose this safeguard and so are more susceptible to disease. Errors in imprinting have also been linked to cancer and other gene...
