Researchers have identified a potential new biomarker for cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's disease. The study reports fibrinogen, a blood clotting protein, causes a series of molecular events that may trigger the destruction of connections between neurons, resulting in cognitive decline.
According to a Nature study, researchers developed a method to reprogram specific T cells in the immune system. Scientists were able to turn pro-inflammatory cells into anti-inflammatory cells, and vice versa, to boost or suppress the immune system. Researchers believe their findings could have significant impact on developing treatments for autoimmune diseases.
Newly identified neurons in the reticular thalamus could help shed light on the link between seizures and psychiatric disorders such as ADHD and schizophrenia, a new study reports.
V2a interneurons could potentially repair spinal cord injuries, researchers report.
Researchers have identified a common mechanism in both frontotemporal dementia and neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis.
Activating Nrf2 helps with the removal of LRRK2 and alpha synuclein, researchers report.
