By reducing the expression of the SOD1 gene, ALS onset and progression is slowed, a new study suggests.
Researchers find degeneration of the fornix can identify those at risk of cognitive decline long before clinical symptoms appear.
New research suggests copper could be one of the main environmental factors which can trigger the onset and enhance the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers discover a chemical in an anti-wrinkle cream could help prevent the death of nerve cells damaged by mutations, which cause an inherited form of Parkinson’s disease.
A new study reveals a previously unknown mechanism which establishes polarity in developing neurons. The findings could help to develop new therapies for spinal injuries and neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers discover a form of CD33, which lacked a critical functional domain, correlates with a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers reveal how two classes of drug compounds, which are currently in trial, work to fight Alzheimer’s disease. They also identify possible causes of early onset hereditary forms of AD.
Researchers have discovered the gene mutation responsible for pontocerebellar hypoplasia. Pontocerebellar hypoplasia is an incurable neurodegenerative disease which affects children.
Researchers produce mini-antibodies and antibody fragments to study the interactions between antibodies and prion proteins.
A new study suggests exercise could improve cognitive function in people at risk for Alzheimer’s disease as it improves the efficiency of brain activity associated with memory.
