Researchers create neurons from the skin cells of ALS patients in order to "treat" a gene defect in a dish.
Researchers report they have identified two regions of a mouse brain where a gene implicated in ALS is expressed.
Researchers believe a newly discovered mechanism may contribute to cell death in people suffering from ALS and dementia.
According to new research, the C9orf72 mutation causes long strands of RNA to block specific pathways which usually move proteins into a cell's nucleus.
Researchers have identified a new toxic entity associated with genetically inherited forms of frontotemporal dementia and motor neuron disease.
Researchers believe mouse could provide a new platform for testing treatments for several neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers report the C9ORF72 genetic mutation can lead to toxicity in neurons, causing 10 percent of all ALS cases and 10 percent of FTD cases.
