Schizophrenia simulator's makers

Schizophrenia simulator's makers

Zhen Qi and Eberhard Voit collected and mined data on a major schizophrenia impairment from some 50 labs around the world. They unified the data, applied differential equations and programmed a simulator to mimic the brain chemistry behind it. The simulator is so accurate, it can predict experimental outcomes and may prove useful in the search for treatments.
