Iscuss how diseases of the brain may be treated by modulating the activity of chemical synapses.

Pleaser use an example of a brain disease I would prefer you to either talk about depression or schizophrenia and how they are treated with chemicals (medication).

You need to know how the brain synapse works.

Do not use Wikipedia.

Do not copy and paste, use your own words.

Do not talk about any side effects of the medication.

Talk about the molecular details of the disease and how they relate to the symptoms. What chemicals are involved.

Concentrate on how a brain disease (schizophrenia or depression) can be treated using chemicals.

Please study the topic before attempting to write about it. You need to show that you know what you are talking about.

I will upload some lecture slides so that you can get an idea about what you need write about.

I have 3 weeks until the deadline, take your time.

It should be between 1500-2000 words but do not count the references.

Focus on the mechanism underlying the disease and then how drugs modify that mechanism to either cure the disease or ameliorate the symptoms.
