Mitochondria Shown to Regulate Brain's CA2 Subregion Highlighting a Potential Target for Neuro Disorders

“This is the first example of CA2 being implicated in mitochondrial disease, and it opens up many avenues of research into diseases where mitochondria are affected—Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, etc.—as well as disorders where CA2 function, i.e., social memory, may be impaired, such as autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia,” Farris said.
