Study reports oligodendrocytes in the brain are distinct from oligodendrocytes in the central nervous system due to their metabolic processes. The findings may shed new light on neurological and autoimmune dysfunction in multiple sclerosis and other neurodegenerative disorders.
p75NTR, a protein implicated in normal brain development and Alzheimer's disease, may play a role in the development of autism. Mice bred without the protein exhibited learning deficits similar to those associated with ASD.
