Neurons ' faulty wiring leads to serotonin imbalance, depression-like behavior in mice
A gene has been identified that allows neurons that release serotonin to evenly spread their branches throughout the brain. Without this gene, these branches become entangled, leading to haphazard serotonin distribution, and signs of depression in mice. These observations shed light on how neuronal wiring is critical to overall brain health, while also revealing a promising new research focus for psychiatric disorders associated with serotonin imbalance -- such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and autism.

Braeburn ’s risperidone implant meets primary endpoint in schizophrenia trial
Braeburn Pharmaceuticals said yesterday that a 6-month study of its risperidone implant in patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder met its primary endpoint. Risperidone, the most commonly-prescribed therapy for schizophrenia, depends on consistent administration, but patients with schizophrenia sometimes stop taking their medication when their symptoms improve. Long-acting, injectable formulations of risperidone are on the market, but there is no FDA-approved formulation that lasts for 6-months, according to Braeburn.

These Illustrations Show What It's Like To Live With Schizophrenia
It’s hard to walk in the shoes of someone with a serious mental health condition, but art can play a major role in bridging the divide. Kate Fenner, an 18-year-old artist, tapped into this exact creative process in order to better explain how her schizophrenia diagnosis affects her everyday reality. The result is a series of illustrations that perfectly capture how the mental health disorder feels and manifests: A 10 minute self portrait: 3:30 AM.

Causes of Psychosis
When my son Dan was diagnosed with severe obsessive-compulsive disorder, his psychiatrist informed me and my husband that Dan was “borderline psychotic.” In other words, our son was out of touch with reality. For most people, psychosis usually presents in one of two ways: Hallucinations – consist of seeing, hearing or feeling things that are not actually there. A common example is hearing voices. Delusions – consist of beliefs that are not likely to be true and that seem irrational or nonsensical to other people. A typical example involves believing that outside forces are controlling your thoughts, feelings, and ...

How the Month You Were Born Affects Your Personality, According to Science
Let’s agree on one thing first: Astrology is gibberish — gibberish with a nice line of charm bracelets, maybe, but gibberish all the same. Its fundamental premise — that the combined gravity of all of the planets at the moment you’re born determines your personality — is all by itself its undoing. As Newton knew, the gravity of any massive object is inversely proportional to the square of its distance. Even for a giant planet like Neptune, which is 2.7 billion miles (4.4 billion km) away, the amount of gravitational pull it exerted on you at birth was…let’s see…times 2.7̷...
