Researchers have discovered a new biomarker that can help diagnose Huntington's disease. They note the findings could result in the development of treatments to postpone neuron death in those who carry the Huntington's gene mutation, but who do not currently show symptoms of the disease.
Researchers have developed a new injectable gel that releases microRNAs into heart muscles, restarting the replication of existing caridomyocytes following a heart attack.
Studies presented at Neuroscience 2017 shed new light on how the brain consolidates memories and the neurological effects of poor sleep.
A Cell Reports study identifies molecules that allow Schwann cells to help regenerate nerves.
A new study in Scientific Reports reports T.gonfii infection may alter, or even amplify some neurological disorders including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
WUSTL researchers have converted skin cells into motor neurons without going through the stem cell state. The new technique could help in the development of devastating neurodegenerative diseases, like ALS, that affect motor neurons.
Researchers have been able to restore limb mobility and partially re-insulate neurons in mouse models of MS with microRNA treatments.
