New Molecular Pathway Underlying Parkinson’s Disease Identified

Neuroscience researchers have identified a new molecular pathway underlying Parkinson's disease. The pathway involves polyamines, which were discovered to be responsible for increased build-up of other toxic proteins in neurons. The research also suggests polyamine lowering drugs could have a protective effect from Parkinson's disease. ... Read More...

Brain Enters And Leaves States Of Induced Unconsciousness Via Different Processes

Researchers have discovered the brain enters and leaves states of anesthetic-induced unconsciousness through different processes. The study suggests both forward and reverse paths through which induced unconsciousness dissipates and arrives are not identical. Noted was a delay in returning to a state of consciousness even after levels of anesthetic diminish.... Read More...
