Glutathione is the brain’s primary antioxidant.
There is reduced prefrontal cortex glutathione in Schizophrenia, Depression, and Bipolar disorder. A paper published in 1934 by Looney and Childs called ‘The lactic acid and glutathione content of the blood of schizophrenic patients’ first raised the hypothesis of oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction in schizophrenia.

Anyone in the northern Ohio area needing a car? We are selling our 2003 Chevy Cavalier for $1200 (price negotiable). It has around 180800 miles. Runs great and gets roughly 30-36 mpg. The only issue with the car is a minor oil leak that started 5-6 months ago and we have not had it looked at. I add 1 quart of oil every month or 2. You can email me at reynoldsg @ gmail.com if interested or if you have questions.
We are on the north east side of Cleveland in the willowick area.

Pictures of the car can be seen at:

This might prove useful for my research with COMT, dopamine, & seratonin.
How do antidepressants trigger fear and anxiety?
More than 100 million people worldwide take selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as Prozac and Zoloft, to treat depression, anxiety and related conditions, but these drugs have a common and mysterious side effect: they can worsen anxiety in the first few weeks of use, which leads many patients to stop treatment.

Scientists at the University of North Carolina (UNC) School of Medicine have mapped out a serotonin-driven anxiety circuit that may explain this side effect and lead to treatments to eliminate it.
The new study, published in Nature, counters the popular view of serotonin as a neurotransmitter that promotes only good feelings.

SSRIs, which are taken by about one in 10 people in the United States and about one in four women in their 40s and 50s, are thought to improve mood by boosting serotonin activity in the brain. There are brain circuits through which serotonin does seem to improve mood, and some studies have linked depression to abnormally low levels of serotonin. But the short-lived promotion of anxiety in many patients on SSRIs - even suicidal thinking, particularly in younger people - has long hinted that serotonin can have negative effects on mood, depending on the precise brain circuit where it acts.

Geneticists have identified an enzyme which regulates the production of sperm and egg cells in human reproduction. The finding furthers our understanding of a process which can go wrong, resulting in miscarriage or chromosomal irregularities.
