Mice that experienced early life stress and later developed irritable bowel syndrome had significantly higher levels of intestinal stem cells and enterochromaffin (EC). Additionally, the mice expressed elevated secretion of serotonin as a result of the increased EC cell density.
According to a new study, the survival of axons in a developing embryo comes from cells in the body and not the axon itself.
According to a new study, degenerating neurons in the brains of Alzheimer's patients measurably responded to a new, experimental gene therapy.
A newly developed biodegradable microcapsule that delivers nerve growth factor guides the development of hippocampal neurons in in-vitro experiments.
A new study supports growing evidence that the nervous system and nerve growth factor (NGF) play a significant role in arthritis. The findings also suggest reducing elevated NGF levels could be key in developing treatments for arthritis pain.
