Researchers have identified an exceptional mouse model of schizophrenia. The study identified a mutant mouse lacking the Schnurri-2 protein (Shn-2 KO) that exhibits behavioral deficits and other brain features consistent with schizophrenia.
Researchers identify regions of genes linked to Behçet’s disease, a poorly understood condition that causes painful and serious symptoms, including ulcers and brain inflammation. The study identified novel gene variants in the inflammatory disorder and uncovered data that could apply to studies of other diseases.
A new study supports p38α MAPK as a possible clinical target for treating central nervous system disorders associated with uncontrolled brain inflammation, including TBI.
A new study suggest IVIg plays a key role in the reduction of amyloid deposition.
Inflammation in the brain prevents cells from accessing the iron they need in order to perform a critical role in neurodevelopment.
Researchers have identified a set of compounds which could be used to treat MS. These compounds boost a population of progenitor cells which can repair damage to nerve fibers caused by the disease.
MAPC therapy reduces inflammation after TBI and also promotes lasting cognitive improvement, a new study reports.
A 14-year-old boy’s turnaround and quick recovery after being stricken by encephalitis - which led to him being hospitalized for six weeks and put into a medically induced coma after falling critically ill - shows that the newest generation of DNA analysis tools can be harnessed to reveal the cause of a life-threatening infection even when physicians have no suspects.
A new gene expression study of the brains of those with autism is the largest of its kind.
New research reports galactic cosmic rays cause significant damage to the central nervous system and results in cognitive impairments for astronauts on extended space flights.
