Researchers from EPFL have uncovered how diazepam, a common anxiolytic, can increase mitochondrial activity in neural pathways associated with motivation.
A new study could be the first step to developing drugs that targets carbonic anhydrase in mitochondria to help protect against aging and neurodegeneration.
A new probe which allows researchers to quantify folded and misfolded protein levels in a cell could help pave the way for drug treatments for misfolding diseases such as Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have identified a signaling pathway that promotes sensory neuron grown and prevents peripheral neuropathy when blocked.
A new study reports an antidepressant temporarily inhibits the blood-brain barrier, allowing drugs to enter the brain. The findings could have implications for treating neurological diseases from ALS to epilepsy.
The retrieval of mitochondria via a feedback loop is vital to sustaining synaptic transmission.
