As Alzheimer’s disease progresses, microglial cells lose two important biological functions affecting their ability to remove cell fragments and motility towards acute lesions.
Researchers evaluate the pathological impact of single incident TBI and mild, repetitive traumatic brain injury, in order to learn which measures need to be taken to identify risk, early incidence and to reduce long term complications associated with TBI.
Researchers provide additional insight into deficits in the prefrontal cortex involved in drug addiction. The findings could offer new avenues of research for the treatment of addiction.
According to three new studies, numerous opportunities exist to improve the outcomes of TBI in older adults.
“If in doubt, sit it out” researchers recommend for athletes with suspected concussions in a new concussion guideline update from the AAN.
Preterm infants with low-grade periventricular-intraventricular hemorrhage (PIVH) brain bleeding could have similar long term neurodevelopmental outcomes as babies with no bleeding, researchers suggest.
Researchers transplanted neural cells, derived from adult skin cells, into monkeys; where they developed into several different types of brain cells. The research could eventually help provide new treatment avenues for patients with a wide range of neurological diseases.
A new study finds lasting structural damage to the brain can be caused by a single concussion.
Buphenyl (sodium phenylbutyrate), a medication approved for the treatment of hyperammonemia, could help prevent the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, a new study finds.
Using several imaging methods, researchers note chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency, CCSVI, occurs in low rates for patients with multiple sclerosis and non-MS volunteers.
