Researchers find high-risk genes for schizophrenia — ScienceDaily

Using a unique computational “framework” they developed, a team of scientist cyber-sleuths in the Vanderbilt University Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics and the Vanderbilt Genetics Institute (VGI) has identified 104 high-risk genes for schizophrenia. Their discovery, which was reported in the journal Nature Neuroscience, supports the view that schizophrenia is a developmental disease, one…

Organic cathode offers more reliable contact with electrolyte, a key to stability — ScienceDaily

Solid-state sodium-ion batteries are far safer than conventional lithium-ion batteries, which pose a risk of fire and explosions, but their performance has been too weak to offset the safety advantages. Researchers Friday reported developing an organic cathode that dramatically improves both stability and energy density. The improved performance, reported in the journal Joule, is related…
