ABSTRACT
The article offers information about the mental disorder schizophrenia and why the genes associated with this disease persist through generations. A study found that a gene known as disrupted-in-schizophrenia 1 may be responsible for the resilience of the disease because of its ability to tamper with brain functions in the hippocampus.
