Researchers have identified specific cellular events that appear key to the debilitating autoimmune disease, lupus. The findings suggest that blocking this pathway in lupus-triggering cells could be a potent weapon against the disease.
Researchers show memory pathology in older mice can be reversed by blocking the activity of a specific receptor in the brain. Blocking the B1R receptor helps recover memory and cerebrovascular function.
A new study shows the loss of parkin sharply reduces the level of another protein which usually helps protect neurons from stress.
Inflammation in the brain prevents cells from accessing the iron they need in order to perform a critical role in neurodevelopment.
Chronic stress alters gene activity in immune cells before they reach the bloodstream. The change leads to an overabundance of inflammation, which is linked to many negative health effects, a new study reports.
MAPC therapy reduces inflammation after TBI and also promotes lasting cognitive improvement, a new study reports.
Researchers discover the expression of certain clock genes plays a critical role in delaying the emergence of age-related signs in the brain.
A new study provides additional insight into the cognitive losses often seen as a result of chemotherapy and in some autoimmune diseases.
Fatigue associated with MS could be the result of widely undiagnosed sleep disorders, a new study reports.
Consuming drinks which are high in sugar or high-fructose corn syrup leads to memory problems and neuroinflammation in adolescent rats, a new study reports.
Researchers show how inflammation in pregnant mice can trigger excessive division of neural stem cells in their offspring. This can result in an overgrowth of the brain and autism like behaviors.
