Researchers have identified a drug candidate which appears to suppress a critical genetic alteration in dysfunctional cells.
Researchers have confirmed a key way in which the Zika virus causes damage to fetal brains.
Mini-brains that are able to grow blood vessels are paramount for future investigation of neurological disorders, researchers report.
Researchers used hPSCs to grow an organoid that produces inhibitory neurons and plays a critical role in the early development of the cortex.
Researchers have developed a new method of reducing the time it takes to grow mini brain models in the lab. This may accelerate research into diseases and injury that affect the nervous system.
With the first head transplant scheduled for 2018, many neuroscientists are skeptical the procedure will be a success. A new article questions if scientists, and the general population, will be ready for the procedure. What does it mean for the future of mankind?
Open sharing of scientific data and standard methods will allow researchers to collaborate on projects and accelerate understanding of neurodegenerative diseases.
Machine learning is unable to tell the difference in brain activity between a lab-grown mini-brain and that of a preterm infant who has reached full-term.
