Researchers discover so-called sticky synapses can impair new learning by excessively hard wiring old memories.
According to a new study, researchers have devised a new way to detect chemical damage to DNA that leads to genetic mutations which are responsible for an array of diseases, including ALS and other neurodegenerative diseases.
A new study reports DNA repair genes may determine when the neurological symptoms of Huntington's disease begin.

Combining artificial intelligence technology and blood samples, researchers were able to predict and explain the progression of Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease. The new algorithm was able to detect alterations in gene expression over decades from patients' blood samples.
Findings may explain how neurodegenerative diseases spread throughout the brain and disrupt normal functions. Additionally, treatment for one disease could possibly work for the other two also.
Scientists discovered the reaction which starts the formation of amyloid fibers. Amyloid fibers are problematic in many diseases and disorders...
