BD (bipolar disorder) is a devastating condition, giving rise to debilitating mood swings and a greatly increased likelihood of suicide. Research into the origins, progression and treatment of BD has been slow, primarily due to lack of suitable model systems for BD research. However, the complexity of the neurological basis for mood, variability in patient populations and the lack of clear readouts for BD diagnosis also provide significant problems for research in this area.
