Study finds shared genetics in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder
A new study says that a gene protein 'SNAP25' is related with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is a disorder that affects a person's ability to think, feel and behave clearly.
Bipolar disorder is a mental disorder that causes periods of depression and periods of high mood.
The gene makes changes in a brain network and increases the individual's risk of developing both disorders.
The research has found that such patients' information processing between brain regions involved in controlling emotions get affected due to the gene protein.
It can lead to a new condition such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
