WASHINGTON, D.C., April 11, 2019 — Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia are some of the most common brain disorders and have been associated with problems in cells that contain a type of protein, called parvalbumin. Those cells account for almost one-tenth of all brain cells, but relatively little is known about what they do. Researchers have started to make surprising findings about how those cells work by stimulating mouse brains with lasers. Using their custom-built laser system, researchers in the Bauer Lab at Washington University in St. Louis discovered that increased activity in specific inhibitory neural...Read full article
