Researchers report in glial cells, drug induced plasticity can reduce the motivation for heroin. The findings could help develop new treatments for opioid addiction.
Researchers report taurine may help to boost remyelination in multiple sclerosis patients.
UCSF researchers reveal a common over the counter antihistamine appears to accelerate neural signaling and restore nervous system functioning for some multiple sclerosis patients.
Brain dysfunction noted in schizophrenia patients may be a result of impaired expression of a protein complex associated with protein synthesis, researchers report.
RIKEN researchers discover deprivation of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids during pregnancy can alter gene expression, increasing the risk of schizophrenia in the offspring.
High frequency stimulation of neural fibers leads to greater OPCs proliferation, a new study reports.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have made a significant discovery as to how schizophrenia may occur. They discovered a genetic defect that causes damage to glial cells may also impair the production of myelin. Researchers believe the lack of myelin may be a significant contributor to the development of schizophrenia in some patients.
Researchers have been able to restore limb mobility and partially re-insulate neurons in mouse models of MS with microRNA treatments.
A new study reports astrocytes may be a driving force behind a number of neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers successfully grew adult human neurons from tissue donated from surgery patients. The researchers were able to identify at least 5 brain cell types and the potential proteins each cell could make.
