A new study reveals information about life expectancy for those with Parkinson's and other synucleinopathies.
Researchers have identified a new biomarker for spinal cord and brain inflammation.
A new study reports engaging in activities that are mentally stimulating can help to stave off the onset of mild cognitive impairment.
A global knockout of the thrombin receptor PAR1 accelerates myelin development. The findings could help with the development of treatments for diseases associated with demyelination, like multiple sclerosis.
Scars and lesions on the brain and spinal cord offer clues as to why progressive disability occurs in patients with multiple sclerosis.
Researchers have identified an association between antibiotics administered to children aged two and under, and an increased risk of ongoing conditions ranging from ADHD to obesity. Children exposed to numerous courses of antibiotics as toddlers were more likely to be diagnosed with continuous conditions later in childhood. The study speculates that while antibiotics may only have a transient effect on the developing microbiome, this may have an impact on long-term illness.
A new study reports researchers have successfully used electrical stimulation on the spinal cord of a paralyzed patient to allow him to stand, move his legs and make stepping motions.
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.
