An international research team including Vasiliy Ramensky, a member of the MIPT Life Sciences Center, has unraveled genetic characteristics that increase the risk of developing Tourette's syndrome. Tourette's is a central nervous system disorder that is often inherited. The scientists compared genetic data of thousands of people with Tourette's and healthy people, and found that in people with the condition, there are significant modifications in two genes—NRXN1 and CNTN6. The paper detailing their study was published in the journal Neuron.
