CRI Scientists Increase Our Understanding of the Genetic Basis of Neuropsychiatric Disorders

zhu-body.jpg

A study by scientists at the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at UT Southwestern (CRI) is providing insight into the genetic basis of neuropsychiatric disorders. In this research, the first mouse model of a mutation in the ARID1B gene was created and then used to show that growth hormone treatments reverse some manifestations of the mutation.

Patient Receives 3-D Printed Skull after Traumatic Brain Injury

Dr_Gupta_Chris_6forweb.jpg

After two months in a coma, Chris Cahill woke up confused about where he was and what had happened to him. Cahill was found unconscious from unknown trauma resulting in severe injuries to his frontal lobe, with brain swelling so dramatic it was life threatening, explained to Gaurav Gupta, MD. Dr. Gupta performed emergent surgery on Cahill to relieve the brain swelling with the intent of replacing the skull after the swelling subsided. However, the patient’s own skull was infected and as a result was unusable. At that point, Dr. Gupta decided the best solution to replace the missing skull bone was to use 3-D printing to create a custom cranial skull implant.

Northwestern University neuroscientists now can visualize how fruit flies sense and process humidity. The findings could one day help researchers better understand how the human brain simultaneously processes humidity and temperature and might influence how humans control for mosquitoes in cities and prevent mosquito-borne disease
