Toward a molecular explanation for schizophrenia

Schizophrenia was only recognized as a medical condition in the past few decades, and its exact causes remain unclear.

The findings advance the understanding of schizophrenia and could enable the development of new diagnostic tests and drug treatments for the disease.
