Researchers image the epigenetics of the human brain for the first time ever.

Epigenetic dysfunction is implicated in many neurological and psychiatric diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia. Consequently, histone deacetylases (HDACs) are being aggressively pursued as therapeutic targets. However, a fundamental knowledge … Continue Reading Researchers image the epigenetics of the human brain for the first time ever.
