Scientists at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the Synapsy National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) have succeeded in linking the onset of auditory hallucinations – one of the most common symptoms of schizophrenia – with the abnormal development of certain substructures of a region deep in the brain called the thalamus. The results, published in the journal Biological Psychiatry: CNNI, pave the way for a new understanding of the pathophysiology and treatment of schizophrenia.
