MICROARRAY ANALYSIS OF THE STANLEY BRAIN COLLECTION

MICROARRAY ANALYSIS OF THE STANLEY BRAIN COLLECTION Pamela Sklar, Whitehead Institute To identify genes involved in psychiatric disorders, we performed microarray expression profiling using Affymetrix gene-chips (~12,000 genes) on post-mortem prefrontal cortex (area 46) and cerebellum samples from 15 each of control, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression patients.  We initially investigated all samples from prefrontal …

zoonosis

Schizophrenia Bulletin Vol. 21, No. 2, 1995 Could Schizophrenia Be a Viral Zoonosis Transmitted From House Cats? By E. Fuller Torrey and Robert H. Yolken Abstract Studies have suggested that some cases of schizophrenia may be caused by viruses. We hypothesize that such cases may be cases of viral zoonosis transmitted primarily from house cats. …
