New research could help find a solution to slowing down the progression of motor neuron disease.
Researchers find the amino acid, BMAA, can be inserted into neuroproteins. This causes them to misfold and aggregate. BMAA has been detected in the brains of those with ALS.
Researchers have identified and validated two rare gene mutations which could be a cause for late onset Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers find brain regions associated with memory shrink as adults age. This decrease in size is more pronounced in those who later develop neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.
Proteins which control the visual system development in young brains could also affect vulnerability to Alzheimer’s disease in the aging brain, a new study reports.
Researchers obtain new insight into the functioning of a region of the brain involved in spatial orientation, but which is damaged by Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers discover a blood biomarker which could predict severe cognitive decline in patients with Parkinson’s disease.
Researchers have identified a possible molecular pathway which could be the of cause a number of neurodegenerative diseases, including Huntington’s disease and ALS.
New research uncovers the role estrogen plays in memory formation.
Researchers discover link between an inability for neurons to repair DNA and neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS.
