A new study reports some people with schizophrenia have increased numbers of immune cells in their brains. Researchers say the immune cells may be producing inflammatory signals in those with the condition.
Researchers say a novel enzyme treatment may reduce inflammation and scarring that prevents neural regeneration in spinal cord injury.
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 study could offer insight into human glial cell function and reveals a relationship between movement and sleep.
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.
A new electronic microscopy study has captured microglia perform their role in synaptic pruning.
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.
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 investigate how synaptic pruning occurs during development in hopes of discovering how neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders occur.
