Abnormal activation of parvalbumin neurons in the young mouse auditory cortex manifests as a result of maternal neglect.
New research suggests environmental exposure to bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical commonly found in plastics and resins, could suppress a gene critical to nerve cell function and the development of the central nervous system. Exposure to BPA could predispose humans to a number of neurodevelopmental and other health disorders.
Researchers describe their findings about how the Foxg1 gene is involved in the development and differentiation of neurons and glial cells from stem cells.
in a mouse model of Rett syndrome, researchers were able to reverse abnormalities in brain activity and improve neurological function by treating animals with an FDA-approved anesthesia drug, ketamine.
According to researchers, an experimental drug extends lifespan in male mice and ameliorates a number of behavioral symptoms of Rett syndrome in female mice, signifying the disorder may be reversible.
A new study reports a protein associated with Rett syndrome is also among a group of three proteins that affect the function of a gene previously linked to OCD.
Researchers report on a new technique which identifies genetic mutations that cause brain malformation.
Researchers have identified a specific mechanism involved in how females inherit traits. The findings could help reduce susceptibility to Fragile X and Rett syndrome, the researchers report.
Researchers have implicated a new gene associated with Rett syndrome in idiopathic autism.
Findings could lead to new treatments for Rett Syndrome and other forms of autism, researchers report.
