BACKGROUND Electron microscopy and biochemical studies indicate that developmental abnormalities in synaptic organization may be present in brains of schizophrenic patients. This study determined whether these synaptic abnormalities are reflected in differential or uniform alterations in the expression of various synaptic protein genes in the left superior temporal gyrus of schizophrenic patients. METHODS Levels of mRNAs encoding four synaptic vesicle proteins (synaptotagmin I [p65], rab3a… CONTINUE READING
