Astrocyte toxicity in ALS may be caused by an explicit loss on MHCI expression in motor neurons, a new study reveals.
Researchers report transplanting altered neural stem cells into the brains of mice genetically engineered to exhibit symptoms of ALS, delayed the progression of the disease and extended lifespan.
Alzheimer's linked protein, amyloid beta, appears to do very little harm to glial cells, at least in fruit flies, researchers report.
Researchers report an antibiotic usually administered prior to surgery to prevent infection could help reduce damage to the brain that occurs during the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.
Although observed in other species, researchers report hippocampal neurogenesis does not persist through adult life in humans. Researchers say human hippocampal neurogenesis is not detectable in the adult brain.
Brain cells initially increase as we learn new things, but many are either pruned or reused in other roles over time, a new study reports.
A new neuroimaging study identifies differences in brain areas in children with Tourette syndrome compared to peers without the disorder.
Neuroimaging brain scans show evidence of brain abnormalities four months after a mild concussion occurs, researchers report.
