Following injury or damage, insulin plays a key role in the maturation and regeneration of immature olfactory sensory neurons.
PINK1, a gene associated with Parkinson's disease, is not just responsible for the premature death of dopaminergic neurons, it also plays a key role in the neurogenesis of dopamine neurons throughout life.
A newly developed hydrogel scaffold with regularly spaced pores assists in spinal cell growth and neuron regeneration following spinal cord injury.
Study identifies 40 genes in mice that actively suppress axon regeneration in the central nervous system.
A newly developed biodegradable microcapsule that delivers nerve growth factor guides the development of hippocampal neurons in in-vitro experiments.
A new series of studies review the roles neuroplasticity and neurogenesis play in alcohol addiction and recovery.
Experiencing trauma or extreme stress during childhood can lead to structural changes in the hippocampus and amygdala that can be seen decades later.
The inhibition of GCK-IV kinases leads to robust neuroprotection while permitting axon regeneration. The findings could lead to new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases.
