Researchers show CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technology can be effectively used in rhesus monkey embryos.
Researchers have encoded a 'primitive' video from the DNA in living cells. The Nature study reports this is the first step towards a 'molecular recorder' that could make it possible to get read-outs of changing internal states of neurons as they develop in the brain.
Researchers have created a map of gene regulation in human cortical neurogenesis. The study reveals a number of factors that govern brain growth and the development of some brain disorders.
With the aid of CRISPR gene editing techniques, researchers have identified a new biomarker for Alzheimer's disease. The study reports a deficiency of the protein STIM1 could be implicated in the sporadic version of the neurodegenerative disease.
Researchers use CRISPR to convert cells isolated from mouse connective tissue into neural cells.
People are less averse to the use of CRISPR gene editing in agriculture if the technology is used to promote disease resistance in animals. However, people tend to dislike the use of CRISPR when it comes to new breeding methods.
Study identifies a short gene segment crucial for brain development and information processing. The absence of the gene segment induces altered social behaviors, learning difficulties, and memory deficits, which are hallmarks of a subset of ASD.
Rockefeller University researchers reveal Huntington's neurons are much larger than healthy cells.
