A new method for obtaining mature neuronal cells from reprogrammed skin cells allows researchers to safely and effectively study diseases such as schizophrenia and autism.
A new study points to a newly discovered system in which the brain removed waste as a potential new tool to treat neurodegenerative disorders.
Researchers use a novel sequencing method to identify a group of genes used by microglia to sense pathogenic organisms, toxins and damaged neurons.
A new study reports a potential new treatment for seizures which often occur in children with genetic metabolic disorders and people with liver failure.
Astrocytes actively refine neural circuits by selectively eliminating synapses, a new study reports.
Researchers discover the expression of certain clock genes plays a critical role in delaying the emergence of age-related signs in the brain.
Lactate causes neurons to release more norepinephrine, a new study reports.
Researchers show chronic stress generates long term changes in the brain. The finding could explain why people suffering from chronic stress are prone to developing additional mental health problems.
Researchers discover UPF1 helps determine whether an immature neural cell remains as a stem cell or develops into a functional neuron.
Researchers reprogram astrocytes to become functional neurons in living mammals.
