Glial cells pass on metabolites to neurons. Around 100 billion neurons in the human brain enable us to think, feel...
A study shows social isolation during early life prevents the cells that make up the brain's white matter from maturing and producing the right amount of myelin, the fatty "insulation" on nerve fibers that helps them transmit long-distance messages within the brain.
Inflammation in the brain prevents cells from accessing the iron they need in order to perform a critical role in neurodevelopment.
Researchers report using a balance board from a video game system can help some MS patients to reduce the risk of accidental falls.
Researchers discover the axons of auditory neurons which respond to low and high frequency sounds differ in morphology. These variations correlate with differences in the speed of signal conduction.
Researchers have developed a new method to capture how brain cells communicate with greater precision.
Researchers report a novel combination of MFGM, lactoferrin and prebiotics added to a DHA and ARA formula advanced brain development in piglets. This advanced formula could potentially be used on human babies.
A new study reports researchers have discovered a previously unknown relationship between brain function and structure. The findings could help explain how communication breaks down in diseases such as multiple sclerosis and schizophrenia.
Researchers discovered an important component of myelination following birth that could help treat neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers report motor problems associated with preterm birth could be due to defects in peripheral nerves.
