Rockefeller University researchers reveal Huntington's neurons are much larger than healthy cells.
A new study reveals a commonality in gene activity related to the same immune response and inflammatory pathways in the brains of patients with Parkinson's and Huntington's disease.
A study to be published in eNeuro reports scheduled feeding times improved motor activity, sleep quality and quality of life in mouse models of Huntington's disease.
UCL researchers report clinical trials of IONIS-HTTRx have shown success in reducing the huntinting protein in the nervous system of those with Huntington's disease. The drug is safe and well tolerated by human patients, the researchers note.
University of Cambridge researchers report sheep can be trained to recognize different faces from photographs and can identify their handler in a photo without prior training.
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.
