Researchers report therapeutic activation of the TREM2 gene during the early stages of Alzheimer's disease may help to counteract the formation of amyloid beta protein aggregates.
A new study reveals the intestine as a source of immune cells that help reduce neuroinflammation in patients with multiple sclerosis. Increasing the number of these cells helps block inflammation entirely, researchers report.
Researchers have developed an innovative approach to identifying novel cellular targets and pathways involved in wiring adult born neurons into existing brain circuits.
A new study sheds light on the role oligodendrocytes play in the development and progression of multiple sclerosis.
Researchers report stress during fetal development and early childhood can have lasting implications for brain development, leading to increased risks of brain disorders later in life.
Researchers have discovered how the nature of T cells help protect the brain from viruses. The findings shed light on the role the immune system plays in a number of neurodegenerative disorders.
Researchers report senescent, or Zombie, cells accumulate in certain neurons prior to cognitive loss. By preventing accumulation of these cells, researchers were able to diminish apoptosis, memory loss and tau aggregation.
Researchers have discovered lymphatic vessels carry previously unknown messages from the brain to the immune system that triggers multiple sclerosis. Blocking the messages may provide new treatment options for the disease.
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.
A new study reports mast cells play a key role in determining sex differences in the developing brain.
