Abstract

The biology of schizophrenia is complex with multiple hypotheses (dopamine, glutamate, neurodevelopmental) well supported to underlie the disease. Path ways centere dont he risk factor "disrupted in schizophrenia1"(DISC1) maybeable to explainandunite these disparatehypotheses and will be the topic of this mini-symposium preview. Nearly a decade after its original identification at the center of a translocation breakpoint in a large Scottish family that was associated with major psychiatric disease, we are starting to obtain credible insights into its function and role in disease etiology. This preview will highlight a number of exciting areas of current DISC1 research that are revealing roles for DISC1 during normalbrain development and also in the disease state. Together these different threads will provide a timelyandexciting overview of the DISC1 field and its potential in furthering our understanding of psychiatric diseases and in developing new therapies.
