Using a tiny dose of the leukemia drug nilotinib, researchers halt the accumulation of toxic proteins linked to Parkinson's diseases in the brains of mice.
Researchers use techniques which illuminates subtle changes in proteins and uncover new insights into the underlying causes of ALS.
Study implicates abnormalities in SOD1 with Parkinson's disease and ALS.
Researchers have developed a brain machine interface which can control a lower limb exoskeleton.
Treatment with copper-ATSM helped mouse models retain behavioral performance and prevented extensive motor neuron degeneration and microglial activation associated with ALS.
Research using C. elegans finds maple syrup may protect neurons and prevent the development of ALS.
Researchers have created a new musical instrument that can be controlled by thought alone. The instrument, dubbed the Encephalophone, may help as a rehabilitation tool for those with motor disabilities, the Frontiers in Human Neuroscience study reports.
Using CRISPR, researchers have identified a new set of genes that may be implicated in both ALS and frontotemporal dementia.
