Performing post-mortem staging of the brains and spinal cord tissue of patients with ALS, researchers discover the neurodegenerative disease could progress from one start point in the CNS to other regions of the brain and spinal cord.
Researchers confirm the mental fogginess produced as a result of taking the cancer drug tamoxifen, is real. They have also discovered an existing drug compound which appears to counteract the effects of this medication.
A gene mutation which causes Lesch-Nyhan syndrome could provide clues to the developmental and neurological defects noted in other neurodegenerative diseases.
Mouse whisker research reveals a signaling pathway which relays touch signals to the brain.
Chronic stress alters gene activity in immune cells before they reach the bloodstream. The change leads to an overabundance of inflammation, which is linked to many negative health effects, a new study reports.
Exposure to air pollution in urban areas could trigger a toxic response in neurons and impact pathways associated with neurodegenerative diseases, researchers report.
A new study reports that after chronic stress, primed immune cells cause an excessive reaction to a later event.
Working with fruit flies, researchers identify a mechanism which helps explain how neurons which make up the visual system are generated.
