A new study reveals selenium is essential for the postnatal development of a specific type of interneuron.
Researchers have identified a number of variable locations in the genome that influence hippocampal gene activity and may contribute to brain disorders.
Researchers have discovered how TH1 and TH17 immune cells obtain access to neurons in multiple sclerosis.
Using a technique called parabiosis on pairs of mice, researchers discover what they call 'cancer like mobility' of amyloid beta, reporting it can travel to the brain from other parts of the body.
Two new studies published in PNAS suggest gut microbes may play a key role in the neurodegeneration associated with multiple sclerosis. The findings could help researchers identify new therapies to help treat the autoimmune disease, such as dietary changes and drugs based on microbial byproducts.
Researchers from Salk Institute have found additional evidence that fisetin, a natural compound found in strawberries, could help to treat cognitive decline and memory loss associated with aging. They discovered the compound reduced memory loss in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. Based on the findings, researchers report fisetin could help prevent other age related neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers report looking at neural networks in the brain, rather than just specific regions, could shed new light on why some brain injuries are worse than others.
A new study describes how advances in technology can help us avoid aging and age related diseases.
A new study reports a three fold risk for people who carry variants of two specific genes in developing multiple sclerosis.
