The hand knob area of the premotor cortex operates across a wide range of motor functions and body areas.
A newly developed artificial neural connection device allows new cortical sites, previously not associated with limb movements, to swiftly regain the control of a paralyzed hand.
Researchers have identified a molecule that causes the decline of motor function and increased frailty in nematodes. Targeting the molecule with paxilline helps improve motor function and longevity.
A new study reports the serotonin system is made up of multiple parallel pathways that affect the brain in different, and sometimes opposing, ways.
Researchers report Huntington's disease is not only a neurodegenerative disease, it is also a disease that affects muscle tissues.
A new study reports continued heavy drinking in older people is associated with poor global cognitive and motor functions.
Researchers inject an experimental stem cell treatment into the damaged cervical spine of a recently paralyzed young man, restoring a level of function into his hands and arms.
Researchers reveal the role PRC2 plays in Huntington's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have successfully recorded neural activity in the human striatum.
