UCSF researchers reveal a common over the counter antihistamine appears to accelerate neural signaling and restore nervous system functioning for some multiple sclerosis patients.
Researchers show chronic stress generates long term changes in the brain. The finding could explain why people suffering from chronic stress are prone to developing additional mental health problems.
CYFIP1 plays a key role in the damaging effects of 15q11.2 deletion. When CYFIP1 is missing, myelin abnormalities occur. The findings shed light on how psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and autism, may develop.
Glial cells pass on metabolites to neurons. Around 100 billion neurons in the human brain enable us to think, feel...
Cells that drive myelin repair become less efficient due to aging. Myelin loss results in cognitive decline and is central to a number of neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers transplanted neural cells, derived from adult skin cells, into monkeys; where they developed into several different types of brain cells. The research could eventually help provide new treatment avenues for patients with a wide range of neurological diseases.
The death of myelin producing oligodendrocytes appears to trigger multiple sclerosis like symptoms in mice, a new study reports.
A new study outlines the mechanism involved in remyelination.
A new study reports astrocytes may be a driving force behind a number of neurodegenerative diseases.
