V2a interneurons could potentially repair spinal cord injuries, researchers report.
According to a new study, over-expression of the Usp16 gene could be a major contributor to neurological deficits associated with Down syndrome.
Researchers have successfully transplanted human neurons to treat symptoms of spinal cord injury in mice. The researchers believe this could pave the way for eventual treatment in humans.
A new study unravels the mechanisms driving excess brain growth that affects as many as 30 percent of people with autism.
Monitoring progenitor cells in the brains of living mice, researchers discover these cells remain highly dynamic in the adult brain. Progenitor cells can transform into cells that insulate nerve fibers and help form scars that aid in tissue repair, study suggests.
