Using neurons created from iPS cells derived from people with ALS, researchers develop a new drug which appears to halt the impact of the genetic mutations in some forms of ALS and dementia.
Researchers discover how a genetic code variation in the C9orf72 gene alters the shape of DNA, making cells more vulnerable to stress and apoptosis.
A new study reveals pericyte degeneration may influence the development of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers discovered some protease inhibitors used to treat HIV can lead to the production of the peptide amyloid beta.
Microglia plays crucial roles both in healthy and diseased brains, a new study reports.
A new study reports reduced levels of Rheb result in memory loss in animal models of dementia.
A new study links a lack of SMG1 to protein aggregates associated with Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Activating group 2 innate lymphoid cells in aging brains helps improve memory in mice. The findings could help in the development of treatments for neurodegenerative diseases associated with aging.
