Performing post-mortem staging of the brains and spinal cord tissue of patients with ALS, researchers discover the neurodegenerative disease could progress from one start point in the CNS to other regions of the brain and spinal cord.
According to researchers, peripheral nerve damage caused by leprosy can induce changes in the brain.
New research helps explain how some patients in a vegetative state are aware, despite appearing unconscious and unresponsive.
Researchers report repetitive movements in slow learning stages can alter the primary motor cortex and help people retain new motor skills.
