Neuroscientists found that the specific microRNA, microRNA-29 (miR-29), can make brain cells resistant to programmed cell death. The researchers injected...
Understanding glioblastoma at the genetic, molecular level Glioblastoma is the most common and most lethal form of brain tumor in...
Recent findings by an international collaboration including IRCM researchers hold new implications for the pathogenesis of myotonic dystrophy.
Scientists studying a rare genetic disorder have identified a molecular pathway that may play a role in schizophrenia, according to new research. The findings may one day guide researchers to new treatment options for people with schizophrenia - a devastating disease that affects approximately 1 percent of the world's population.
A recent study indicates microRNAs may play a far more important role in memory formation than previously thought. The research suggests microRNA—miR-182 is involved in developing memory in the amgydala.
Researchers have shown stress on preadolesecent and adult male mice induced an epigenetic mark in their sperm which reprogrammed their offspring's HPA axis, a region the the brain which governs stress response.
According to a new study, specific MicroRNA naturally packaged into exosomes are released by stem cells after a stroke, contributing to better neurological recovery.
Researchers reveal the important role of microRNAs in regulating neuroblastoma brain cancer development.
