Neuron Loss in Schizophrenia and Depression Could be Prevented With an Antioxidant, Biological Psychiatry Reveals
Published: Mar 14, 2013
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) deficits have been implicated in schizophrenia and depression. In schizophrenia, deficits have been particularly well-described for a subtype of GABA neuron, the parvalbumin fast-spiking interneurons. The activity of these neurons is critical for proper cognitive and emotional functioning.
