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 successfully created a new map of the brain's immune system in both mice and humans. The findings suggest microglia all have the same core signatures, but can act differently, depending on their function. The map also details how the brain's immune system changes as multiple sclerosis progresses.
