American adults who survive deliberate self-harm—particularly with a firearm—are at increased risk of suicide in the short term, according to a new study from Columbia University Medical Center.
Researchers have found that treatment with very low doses of a dopamine-1 receptor (D1R) agonist was not effective in reducing the cognitive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia.
Scientists have developed a new optical technique to study how information is transmitted in the brains of mice. Using this method, they found that only a small portion of synapses—the connections between cells that control brain activity—may be active at any given time.
In studies in mice, Zuckerman Institute researchers have discovered a way to restore memory deficits found in schizophrenia by regrowing lost neuronal connections.
A Mailman School of Public Health study suggests gender differences in depression and anxiety may have more socially constructed roots than previously thought.
A P&S research team has found that deficits seen in schizophrenia may be due to a decrease in the number of inhibitory neurons within the brain's memory center.
