Synchronized changes in gene activity in brain cells may underlie cognitive impairment in both conditions

At a glance:

  • Study finds people with schizophrenia and older adults have strikingly similar sets of changes in gene activity in two types of brain cells.
  • Findings suggest a shared biological basis for cognitive impairment in schizophrenia and aging and point to new strategies for treating it.
  • The work also implicates a cell type not previously known to affect genetic vulnerability for schizophrenia.
