Researchers have developed a new, non surgical method to manipulate brain circuitry. The technique uses sound waves in combination with small bubble injections into the blood stream that temporarily opens the blood-brain barrier.
Researchers at MIT have developed a new drug delivering nanoparticle that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. The nanoparticles carry two different drugs that can help shrink tumors and prevent them from growing back.
Researchers report new findings about the immune system could help treat inflammation in Alzheimer's disease and could save people from deadly inflammation associated with sepsis.
Researchers have mapped cells that form the brain's blood vessels and blood brain barrier.
Researchers have identified structural 'footprints' that allow certain virus vectors reach the brain easily.
Using titanate nanowires treated with cerebrolysin, researchers have been able to target delivery to the brain and through the central nervous system. Researchers report the use of nanowires to deliver drugs could be beneficial in the treatment of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases.
A new system offers a safer, finer degree of control for opening the blood-brain barrier for drug delivery.
A new study sheds light on a potential mechanism for the development of schizophrenia. Researchers believe blood vessel abnormalities could play a significant role in the development of the psychiatric disorder.
A newly developed model that mimics the blood-brain barrier could help researchers more efficiently test drugs to treat a range of neurological diseases.
