Short circuit: Several genes linked to autism (top) and schizophrenia (bottom) are highly expressed in the thalamus of mice and, when mutated, appear to cause memory problems. Silencing multiple genes associated with autism or schizophrenia in the thalami of mice increases neuronal excitability there and leads to memory problems reminiscent of those in people with […]

Neurons are forever trapped in a dance, adjusting their signals to keep up with new information. When the cells change their speed, they have to maintain a delicate balance: if they increase the excitatory signals too much, it can lead to seizures; too much inhibition can lead to depressive or catatonic states. Neurons achieve this […]
