Tobias Kaufmann and colleagues at NORMENT have been awarded a prize for outstanding scientific paper published during the second half-year of 2019.
A major international collaboration study with contribution from NORMENT researchers has produced the first genetic map of the cerebral cortex, identifying more than 300 genetic variants that influence the structure of the key brain region. The results were recently published in the prestigious journal Science.
In a new study published in JAMA Psychiatry, researchers from NORMENT discovered a number of genetic variants that are linked to both body weight and severe mental illness.
