3 recent discoveries made in schizophrenia

1) Testing human hair could help detect schizophrenia

A new study suggests that it would be possible to detect schizophrenia using tests in human hair that can detect the levels of specific enzymes. Studies show that people who have a severe mental health disorder have a much higher level of MPST as compared to people who don’t. MPST is an enzyme that is responsible for producing hydrogen sulfide in the brain.
