Researchers link genetic errors to schizophrenia

A team of researchers at the UW and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories has uncovered genetic errors that may shed light on the causes of schizophrenia.

Repeated methamphetamine use causes long-term adaptations in brains of mice, researchers find

Repeatedly stimulating the mouse brain with methamphetamine depresses important areas of the brain, and those changes can only be undone by re-introducing the drug, according to research at the University of Washington and other institutions.
