Interleukin-6 and Interferon-y Show Different Deleterious Effects in Human Stem Cell-Based Model of Neurodevelopment
Fetal exposure to interleukin-6 and interferon-y influences the risk of neuropsychiatric disorders through different mechanisms, Massachusetts General Hospital researchers found in a human model. In vitro treatment with folic acid early in neuron development mitigated the threat.
Stem Cell "Mini-Brains" Useful for Studying the Biology of Bipolar Disorder
Three-dimensional cellular models of the dorsal forebrain, generated from induced pluripotent stem cells, facilitated exploration of the neurobiology of bipolar disorder.
