Not exactly live-tooting the Society for Biological Pyschiatry conference, but the second speaker is pointing out that somatic mosiac mutations a) can happen throughout the lifespan, b) can occur in any cell in the body, including neurons which aren't dividing, and c) are well recognized as playing a role in childhood epilepsy. He's also going talk about their role in schizophrenia, which is where my ears perk up. #academics
