By | January 24, 2023
Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, U.S. present the first evidence of 12-hour cycles of gene activity in the human brain. Publishing in the open access journal PLOS Biology on January 24th, the study led by Madeline R. Scott also reveals that some of those 12-hour rhythms are missing or altered in the postmortem brains of patients with schizophrenia.
