Researchers have identified 40 new genes they believe are related to aggressive behavior in both humans and mice. The findings deepen understanding of the genetic basis of aggressiveness.
Researchers have identified key underlying biological processes that involve some of the hundreds of genes known to contribute to the risk of autism spectrum disorders.
The FGF signaling pathway is an important extracellular regulator in the fate of neural stem cells switching from neurons to astrocytes in the cerebral cortex.
Researchers discover a decline in glucose levels in the brain that occurs during the early stages of MCI.
Researchers discovered a bacteria of the genus Bartonella releases a protein, which they dubbed BafA, which stimulates the production of new blood vessels that support bacterial lesions. Bartonella henselae causes cat scratch disease. The findings provide new insight into the mechanisms by which infectious bacteria can produce lesions.
The researchers knocked out the Erk gene during peripheral nervous system development in mice. The researchers noticed the neurons of these knock-out mice were largely unaffected, but Schwann cells were "just devastated at every stage of development."
A new study provides a possible explanation as to what causes cognitive and memory problems associated with chemotherapy treatments.
A new study finds wine-derived human gut metabolites may have neuroprotective capabilities.
