Researchers identify neuronal circuits in the spinal cord of mice which control the ability to produce alternating movements of the legs during walking.
A new study offers insight into how aging affects neural circuitry, in some cases significantly altering gene expression in single neurons.
Scientists knew that mutations in the FUS gene (Fused in Sarcoma) cause amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. The researchers were successful in identifying mutations in this gene that cause Essential Tremor, and proved that the disease mechanisms for ET and ALS FUS mutations are different.
Parkinson’s disease may be caused by oxidative stress within cells due to defective nucleoli. Dopamine producing neurons are particularly sensitive...
Transplanting human stem cells into rat models with ALS improved survival and muscle function, according to a new study.
A nationwide clinical trial for a new type treatment that could offer help to those suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a devastating neuromuscular disease.
Scientists have shown that stem cells delivered to rats via a nasal spray lead to an improvement of motor functions...
