By simulating patterns of microvasculature cell growth and compare the results with real networks grown in lab, researchers hope to direct how they grow into the tiny blood vessels that feed the brain and help people regain functions lost to stroke and disease.
Exposure to everyday stressors may result in impairments in endothelial function for patients with major depressive disorder. The findings reveal a possible reason for the association between stress, depression and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Researchers successfully grew adult human neurons from tissue donated from surgery patients. The researchers were able to identify at least 5 brain cell types and the potential proteins each cell could make.
According to a new study, researchers have discovered a new way to open the blood-brain barrier. The findings have implications for delivering medications to treat brain diseases and cancers.
A new study reports amyloid beta induces a strong inflammatory response, destroying the blood-CSF barrier.
According to researchers, bone marrow stem cell transplants helped repair damage to the blood spinal cord barrier in mouse models of ALS. This helped improve motor functions and nervous system conditions.
Mini-brains that are able to grow blood vessels are paramount for future investigation of neurological disorders, researchers report.
Researchers report they have identified a new component of the biological mechanism which controls blood flow in the brain.
