Weakened inhibition in the hippocampus, the brain’s memory center, can lead to overactivity similar to that found in schizophrenia, reports a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Restoring inhibition with transplanted interneurons  tempered the neural hyperactivity, which supports the notion that boosting inhibition in the hippocampus could restore health to the brain in schizophrenia.
