Researchers discover a surprising degree of variation among the genomes of individual neurons taken from the same brain.
A novel therapeutic, which is based on nanotechnology, turns off a critical gene and increases survival rates in mice with glioblastoma brain cancer, a new study reports.
Researchers have identified a new toxic entity associated with genetically inherited forms of frontotemporal dementia and motor neuron disease.
Researchers discover specific molecules which could be targeted to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
Using neurons created from iPS cells derived from people with ALS, researchers develop a new drug which appears to halt the impact of the genetic mutations in some forms of ALS and dementia.
A gene mutation which causes Lesch-Nyhan syndrome could provide clues to the developmental and neurological defects noted in other neurodegenerative diseases.
A new study finds protein synthesis in dendrites could be responsible for long-term memory formation in the brain, in addition to other functions.
Researchers have identified a possible molecular pathway which could be the of cause a number of neurodegenerative diseases, including Huntington’s disease and ALS.
Researchers find a single gene which encodes two separate proteins from the same sequence of messenger RNA. The finding could provide new strategies for treating SCA6.
Researchers have identified small molecules which allow for control over a genetic defect responsible for adult onset muscular dystrophy.
