    Second, various authors noted that genome editing in animals could enhance research in animal systems by creating better animal models of human disease [3,4,7,11,19,26,34–52,92–95,,,,,–], which could ultimately benefit human health, for example, by leading to the creation of new medicines and therapies [26,,,].Cited by: 2.   Hashimoto encephalopathy (HE) is a condition characterized by onset of confusion with altered level of consciousness; seizures; and jerking of muscles (myoclonus).Psychosis, including visual hallucinations and paranoid delusions, has also been reported. The exact cause of HE is not known, but may involve an autoimmune or .

    Dr. Fonteh�s research interest is on brain lipids and proteins that are altered in neurological disorders. Using modern lipidomic and proteomic methods developed at HMRI, Dr Fonteh is identifying the major lipids and proteins in cerebrospinal fluids and brain fractions that are potential biomarkers of Alzheimer�s disease, migraine or traumatic brain injury. In , he was named a Next Generation Leader by the Allen Institute for Brain Science and in he became an elected member of the Memory Disorders Research Society. He co-edited the textbook "Single neuron studies of the human brain" by MIT press and is one of the principal organizers of the Human Single Neuron meeting.

Sequencing the first human genome, which was completed in as part of the Human Genome Project, cost $3 billion. But now, owing to the success of the Human Genome Project, scientists can sequence the entire human genome for about $1, making it feasible to study a lot of people.
