Researchers transform iPSCs into neurons to test the efficacy of drugs to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers discover SMEK1 promotes the differentiation of neural stem and progenitor cells while, at the same time, keeping these cells in check by suppressing their uncontrolled proliferation.
Researchers investigate how neurons are generated in hope to find potential new treatments for TSC and other neurological disorders.
Researchers suggest neural stem cells could be resistant to radiation. The stem cells could be roused from a hibernation-like state in order to reproduce and generate new cells which have the ability to migrate, replace injured cells and restore lost function.
Researchers have identified a molecular program which spurs the growth of neuronal output connections.
Examining the brains of Drosophila fruit flies, researchers discover a novel stem cell mechanism which could help explain how neurons form in humans.
Researchers mobilize the brain’s native stem cells to replenish medium spiny neurons which are lost in Huntington’s disease.
A new method for obtaining mature neuronal cells from reprogrammed skin cells allows researchers to safely and effectively study diseases such as schizophrenia and autism.
Researchers discover a role for long noncoding RNA in brain development and neurodegenerative diseases.
Years of mouse research lead to discovery of how autophagy keeps neural stem cells ready to replace damaged brain and nerve cells.
