Researchers report an accumulation of glycogen in Lafora disease directly causes apoptosis, triggers autophagy and synaptic failure.
Changes in microglia underlie depressive symptoms brought on by exposure to chronic stress, a new study reports.
Axon pruning becomes reactivated in neurodegenerative diseases, a new study finds.
Using transgenic mice, researchers find a lack of autophagy in neurons prevents the secretion of amyloid beta and the formation of β-amyloid plaques in the brain.
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.
For those with moderate-to-severe TBI, atrophy may be countered by participating in environmental enrichment, a new study suggests.
A new study explores the connection between mechanical ventilation and hippocampal damage in ICU patients.
Using laboratory mice, researchers show anesthesia's neurotoxic effects depend upon the age of the neurons in the brain and not the age of the animal undergoing anesthesia.
Researchers have discovered some surprising insights about the process of axonal pruning. The findings could provide clues about the processes underlying some neurological disorders such as autism and schizophrenia.
