Abstract

Schizophrenia is a severe mental disorder, incapacitating and incurable that affects around 23 million people in the world. Among the hypotheses that try to explain the causes of Schizophrenia, the neurodevelopment hypothesis proposes that a combination of genetic and environmental disturbances since the development of the nervous system in utero are fundamental for the emergence of the disorder, that usually manifests itself in late adolescence/early adulthood. Several studies conducted on cerebral tissue from Schizophrenia patients collected postmortem point to dysfunctions in energy metabolism and mitochondrial processes. Recent results from our laboratory showed alterations in energy metabolism of Neural Stem Cells (NSC) and neurons derived from Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC) from Schizophrenia patients, demonstrating that those alterations are observed during neurodevelopment. It is known that the modulation of the endocannabinoid system is important for key processes in neurodevelopment and can regulate neuronal bioenergetics. In this way, the present project proposes to derive cerebral organoids and neural cells from iPSC from Schizophrenia patients, recapitulating the processes that occur during neurodevelopment, and evaluate the situation of the energy and oxidative metabolism of those organoids and neural cells before and after treatment with cannabinoids.
