Findings could help researchers better understand how certain neurodegenerative diseases may arise.
Researchers suggest more emphasis be placed on attention deficit rather than hyperactivity in people with ADHD.
Researchers have identified over 230 genes which, when deleted, increase the replicative life span of yeast cells. 189 of these genes have been linked to aging and the researchers believe the results could provide new genomic targets that could be used to improve human health.
A nationwide clinical trial for a new type treatment that could offer help to those suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a devastating neuromuscular disease.
Complement C3, a chemically modified form of an inflammatory immune protein, was more abundant in post mortem brain tissue of women who died from Alzheimer's disease than in males.
Mice with a genetic mutation linked to severe depression had impaired ability for neurons in the gut and brain to create serotonin. The reduction of serotonin in the gut led to a deterioration in the gut's lining, slowing the movement of contents through the GI tract and resulting in constipation. However, treatment with 5-HTP increased neurogenesis in the gut, restoring normal function.
Transplanted neurons derived from stem cells shown to be effective in treating epilepsy in mice, a new study reports.
A study of marmoset monkeys reveals a genetic variation of the SLC6A4 repeat region may contribute to anxiety via neurochemical changes in brain areas associated with emotional processing.
Glycan, a special sugar protein, appears to play a significant role in the development of Alzheimer's disease.
