A new study reports on the role of HCN channels in pain processing.
A new study suggests how researchers may combine different genetic approaches in search for a cure for autism.
A new study is the first to show how a single mutation disables a molecular switch in one of the more than 1000 autism genes and causes the disorder.
Researchers discover that an enzyme known for generating toxic brain plaques in Alzheimer's disease also causes additional memory and cognitive deficits via a separate mechanism. They found that BACE1 disrupts the cell's production of other molecules required for PKA function. By that mechanism, BACE1 inactivates PKA and therefore inhibits memory formation in mice, even in the absence of neurotoxic β-amyloid.
