Researchers find the amino acid, BMAA, can be inserted into neuroproteins. This causes them to misfold and aggregate. BMAA has been detected in the brains of those with ALS.
New research could help find a solution to slowing down the progression of motor neuron disease.
Axon pruning becomes reactivated in neurodegenerative diseases, a new study finds.
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.
Researchers create neurons from the skin cells of ALS patients in order to "treat" a gene defect in a dish.
Microglia plays crucial roles both in healthy and diseased brains, a new study reports.
Researchers discover a new way of reducing disease toxicity in ALS which slows the dysfunction of neurons.
An experimental drug for human stroke patients appears to delay motor neuron impairment and degeneration.
Researchers use techniques which illuminates subtle changes in proteins and uncover new insights into the underlying causes of ALS.
