Using a new optogenetic technique, researchers change the shape of a protein in the brains of mice.
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.
Neurons which send itch signals also co-opt pain neurons to intensify the itching sensation, a new study reports.
Researchers isolated a protein which is increased during indurance exercise and gave it to non-exercising mice. The protein turned on genes which promote brain health and encouage new neurons to grow.
Researchers delve deeply into the genomics of 599 GBM brain cancer cases to better target the disease.
A gene mutation which causes Lesch-Nyhan syndrome could provide clues to the developmental and neurological defects noted in other neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have identified an additional 48 genetic variants which influence the risk of developing MS. There are now 110 genetic variants associated with the disease.
Transplanted stem cells help build a ‘biobridge’ which links uninjured brain regions to those damaged as a result of TBI, a new study shows.
Researchers have identified and validated two rare gene mutations which could be a cause for late onset Alzheimer’s disease.
