A gene implicated in Parkinson's disease can control the repair or destruction of neurons, a new study reports.
Salicylic acid, a breakdown product of aspirin, appears to bind to an enzyme that plays a major role in a number of neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers report exosomes help neuron-to-neuron growth and the transfer of oligomer amyloid beta, resulting in apoptosis. The study reveals exosomes may be a primary mediator of the pathogenic progression of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers visualize the molecular changes in a critical cell death protein that force cells to die. Defects in cell death have been linked to the development of diseases such as cancer and neurodegenerative conditions.
For those with moderate-to-severe TBI, atrophy may be countered by participating in environmental enrichment, a new study suggests.
According to researchers, axons coordinate each other's destruction, contributing to neurodegeneration.
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.
Researchers describe the events which cue neurogenesis in songbirds.
