Researchers show chronic stress generates long term changes in the brain. The finding could explain why people suffering from chronic stress are prone to developing additional mental health problems.
Researchers use a newly developed imaging technique that makes tissue transparent to visualize brain tissue from deceased patients with Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reveals proteins in the brain are replaced at different rates, depending on their location. The findings could shed light on how the components of different cells are altered, and how this can impact memory formation.
A new neuroimaging study identifies differences in brain areas in children with Tourette syndrome compared to peers without the disorder.
Melanocyte stem cells from human hair follicles that carry CD34 have the ability to turn into glial cells. The CD34+ stem cells can regenerate myelin, both on neurons and in mouse models with a genetic defect that prevents the formation of healthy myelin sheaths. The findings could have positive implications for the treatment of demyelinating diseases, such as Multiple Sclerosis.
Researchers discover neuronal activity can stimulate tau release from healthy neurons in the absence of cell death. The study shows treatment of neurons with known biological signaling molecules increases the release of tau into the culture medium.
Researchers report in glial cells, drug induced plasticity can reduce the motivation for heroin. The findings could help develop new treatments for opioid addiction.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have made a significant discovery as to how schizophrenia may occur. They discovered a genetic defect that causes damage to glial cells may also impair the production of myelin. Researchers believe the lack of myelin may be a significant contributor to the development of schizophrenia in some patients.
Study looks at the evolutionary development of the human brain.
Researchers measure a marker of activated glial cell response in current and former NFL football players who have suffered concussions.
