https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/04/180405150050.htm This article is very interesting. It is about a study stating that some mental illnesses could come from a gene mutation, erbB4 this gene helps different brain regions communicate. They did an experiment on mice it showed that mice without the erbB4 gene had brain regions that acted individually rather than together. In conclusion they determined that erbB4 is needed to link 2 brain sections so that the person can maintain attention. This is a wonderful study, they are getting closer to understanding how the brain works and therefore will hopefully be able to develop a drug that will target helping both sides of the brain to work together.
