A new study provides new clues for the links between aging and neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers report proteins produced by gut bacteria may cause protein misfolding in the brain and cerebral inflammation.
Researchers report the C9ORF72 genetic mutation can lead to toxicity in neurons, causing 10 percent of all ALS cases and 10 percent of FTD cases.
By reducing the expression of the SOD1 gene, ALS onset and progression is slowed, a new study suggests.
Open sharing of scientific data and standard methods will allow researchers to collaborate on projects and accelerate understanding of neurodegenerative diseases.
A new study reports astrocytes may be a driving force behind a number of neurodegenerative diseases.
A new study ties mutations in two genes to the death of nerve cells in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other related neurodegenerative diseases.
While being overweight may be bad for your general health, researchers discovered an association with higher body mass index (BMI) and a reduced risk of developing ALS. Those with a BMI considered to be in the obese range had a 31% reduced risk of developing ALS, while those considered overweight had an 18% lower risk.
