Better Care for Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder causes mood swings that can be hard to treat. Can the nose's "smell" cells lead to better care?
Bipolar disorder is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain, and can often be controlled by medication. To develop better treatments, researchers are studying cells taken from patients’ noses. They believe these cells offer a window into the brain and may help find the brain changes that contribute to bipolar disorder. See what they’re finding in this video.
