Researchers discover how a neurotoxin commonly used for cosmetic procedures can travel into the CNS.
A new study reports researchers have identified a possible new avenue for treating Parkinson's symptoms and neuropathology. Clearing senescent astrocytes appears to help prevent sporadic versions of the disease triggered by exposure to pesticides.
Researchers are working to develop a faster and more affordable way to screen for neural toxins.
Researchers have found high concentrations of neurotoxins linked to Alzheimer's disease in the fins and muscles of 10 species of sharks. One of the toxins also has been found in shark fin and shark cartilage supplements.
A new method of growing neural networks from stem cells is capable of detecting the activity of Clostridium botulinum neurotoxins and could help to minimize animal research.
