Most people's anxiety about developing Alzheimer’s disease is reduced once they have undergone genetic testing, regardless of whether they have a family history of the illness, Australian researchers have found.

A discovery that brain cells can become "stuck'' in their journey during brain development could lead to new schizophrenia therapies, the team behind the research says.
