A new study debunks the popular myth that handedness plays a role in the lateralization of number processing in the brain. The study revealed, regardless of which is your dominant hand, the brain's location for number processing is the same.
A groundbreaking study reveals human immune cells in the blood can be transformed into functional neurons within 3 weeks by adding four proteins. The discovery could be used to generate neurons to study specific psychological and neurological disorders, researchers say.
A new study reports researchers have created a new way to monitor neural stem cells after they have been transplanted into the brain.
Researchers have created a 3D human retinal tissue from stem cells.
Researchers have identified a novel Parkinson's disease drug target and a compound capable of repairing neurons derived from Parkinson’s patients.
Using neurons created from iPS cells derived from people with ALS, researchers develop a new drug which appears to halt the impact of the genetic mutations in some forms of ALS and dementia.
Researchers use induced pluripotent stem cells to advance disease-in-a-dish modeling of ataxia telangiectasia, a rare genetic disorder associated with progressive loss of function in the cerebellum. Their discovery shows the positive effects of drugs that may lead to effective new treatments for the neurodegenerative disease.
Adapting two dimensional culture methods to grow 3-D neuron structures from induced pluripotent stem cells, researchers may be able to model and study neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers transplanted neural cells, derived from adult skin cells, into monkeys; where they developed into several different types of brain cells. The research could eventually help provide new treatment avenues for patients with a wide range of neurological diseases.
