New psychosis treatment targets genetic mutation instead of symptoms

Related video Boosting glycine Schizophrenia and psychosis How researchers found a new approach A novel treatment that targets a specific genetic mutation could help alleviate the symptoms of psychosis, a new study finds. Targeting one genetic mutation helped scientists devise an innovative treatment for psychosis. Deborah L. Levy, Ph.D. — from the McLean Hospital in […]

AI can predict psychosis risk in everyday language

Related video Machine learning and psychosis symptoms Improving early diagnosis of psychosis risk People’s language could reveal clues about their future risk of developing psychosis. Scientists concluded this after studying the subtle features of people’s everyday speech. Subtle differences in word use can indicate psychosis risk, and machine learning can help identify it. Researchers at […]

Research opens up new avenues for understanding the causes of schizophrenia

Related video 18-year study investigating the development of the hippocampus Adolescence: the period that counts the most Act before the critical period Schizophrenia causes hallucinations and memory or cognition problems inter alia. This psychiatric illness affects 0.5% of the general population, and it may be related to genetic abnormalities of chromosome 22, known as 22q11 […]

New machine-learning method more precisely quantifies a known indicator for psychosis

Related video A machine-learning method discovered a hidden clue in people’s language predictive of the later emergence of psychosis — the frequent use of words associated with sound. A paper published by the journal npj Schizophrenia published the findings by scientists at Emory University and Harvard University. The researchers also developed a new machine-learning method […]

Neuroscientists use novel technology-based tools to predict schizophrenia

Related video Schizophrenia, a psychiatric disorder that affects about 1% of the population,is a leading cause of functional disability in the United States. Typically diagnosis has hinged on the display of visible “positive symptoms” such as hallucinations and delusions, but one key to earlier identification and treatment is a recognition of negative symptoms, and University […]
