Potential therapeutic target for schizophrenia identified

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, neuroscience

Targeting calcium signaling in neurons represents a promising therapeutic approach for treating a rare form of schizophrenia, according to a Northwestern Medicine study published in Biological Psychiatry.

“This is the first time that human are made and characterized from with the 16p11.2 duplication, one of the most prominent genetic risk factors in schizophrenia, and the first time that signaling is found as a central abnormality in schizophrenia neurons,” said Peter Penzes, Ph.D., the Ruth and Evelyn Dunbar Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and senior author of the study.

Schizophrenia is characterized by auditory and visual hallucinations, delusions, and trouble with forming and sorting thoughts, which severely impacts productivity and overall quality of life. The disease, which affects roughly one percent of the , has strong genetic associations, however the exact genes involved are unknown.

Gen-1: The Next Step Forward for Generative AI

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Use words and images to generate new videos out of existing ones.

Realistically and consistently synthesize new videos by applying the composition and style of an image or text prompt to the structure of your source video. It’s like filming something new, without filming anything at all. No lights. No cameras. All action.

N-Electron Valence Perturbation Theory with Reference Wave Functions from Quantum Computing: Application to the Relative Stability of Hydroxide Anion and Hydroxyl Radical

Posted by in categories: computing, information science, quantum physics

Quantum simulations of the hydroxide anion and hydroxyl radical are reported, employing variational quantum algorithms for near-term quantum devices. The energy of each species is calculated along the dissociation curve, to obtain information about the stability of the molecular species being investigated. It is shown that simulations restricted to valence spaces incorrectly predict the hydroxyl radical to be more stable than the hydroxide anion. Inclusion of dynamical electron correlation from nonvalence orbitals is demonstrated, through the integration of the variational quantum eigensolver and quantum subspace expansion methods in the workflow of N-electron valence perturbation theory, and shown to correctly predict the hydroxide anion to be more stable than the hydroxyl radical, provided that basis sets with diffuse orbitals are also employed.
