Two new intranasal drugs slow inflammation and stop the spread of alpha-synuclein in mouse models of Parkinson's disease. The drug also improved gait and balance in the animals. If the results are able to be replicated in humans, researchers say the drugs could be hailed as a "remarkable advance" in the treatment of Parkinson's disease.
Study reveals the molecular mechanisms implicated in the regulation of toxic proteins in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
Study suggests seven compensation strategies to help those with Parkinson's disease improve mobility and walking problems.
Study reports a significant number of people with Parkinson's disease have precise deficits when learning from instructions. Researchers say the problems are associated with differences in brain function.
Novel AI technology allows researchers to understand which brain regions directly interact with each other, which helps guide the placement of electrodes for DBS to treat neurological diseases.
A new small-scale study reveals transcranial direct current stimulation improved gait and increased the benefits of aerobic exercise in Parkinson's patients.
Like humans, zebra finches can recognize songs by their rhythmic pattern, even when the tempo is changed.
New studies have identified an association between daily high coffee consumption, brain shrinkage and an increased risk of dementia. However, researchers were unable to identify a causal relationship between caffeine consumption and dementia. The study also found moderate coffee consumption was associated with lower dementia risk than high consumption, or abstaining from caffeinated drinks.
A new mouse line makes the state of protein balance visible in the mammalian brain for the first time, allowing researchers to investigate disorders associated with protein misfolding.
