Protein pileup affects social behaviors through altered brain signaling
(RIKEN) Scientists at the RIKEN Center for Brain Science (CBS) have discovered that when a normal cellular cleanup process is disrupted, mice start behaving in ways that resemble human symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and schizophrenia. They found that loss of normal autophagy influences how brain cells react to inhibitory signals from each other and contributes to the behavioral changes. This intricate signaling pathway could be a new therapeutic target for neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)

Patient Abandonment Investigation Uncovers South Carolina Medic ’s Troubled Past
ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WRDW/WAGT) - A paramedic with a history of getting high on the job was one of the EMTs who failed a man with a disability. Paul Tarashuk had schizphrenia. He was hit and killed on Interstate 95 after Orangeburg County EMS abandoned him. Our I-Team has learned this isn't the first time the state has investigated the paramedic who failed him. Orangeburg County did not report the events leading up to Tarashuk's death, but an anonymous person did. Seven months later, DHEC published its actions, and we found problems across South Carolina.

Here ’s Everything You Need to Know About Gut Health
It’s hardly news that the gastrointestinal tract is important to human health: It transports food from the mouth to the stomach, converts it into absorbable nutrients and stored energy, and shuttles waste back out of the body. If you don’t properly nourish yourself, you don’t live. It’s that simple. But in recent years, scientists have discovered that the GI system has an even bigger, more complex job than previously appreciated. It’s been linked to numerous aspects of health that have seemingly nothing to do with digestion, from immunity to emotional stress to chronic illnesses, including can...

Now, Salk Institute researchers have discovered differences in growth patterns of neurons of SSRI-resistant patients.
