UTSA brain researcher Alfonso Apicella has just published research that sheds light on one of the brain's greatest mysteries: how the two hemisphere of the brain communicate with each other. His focus is the role of a particular brain cell called the GABAergic neuron, which when disrupted leads to diseases like epilepsy and schizophrenia. His findings have the potential to change how clinicians approach treatments for these diseases.
