Researchers report insufficient blood supply could contribute to motor neuron loss in SMA.
A new study uncovers molecular changes which may explain why motor neurons, rather than other neurons, are affected by the childhood illness, SMA.
A new study reveals a link between brain activation, cardiorespiratory fitness and executive function in older adults.
GABA plays a vital role in controlling the involuntary tics associated with Tourette Syndrome.
Researchers identify Neurexin2 as a new target for potential treatment of spinal muscular atrophy.
A study suggests that spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a genetic neuromuscular disease in infants and children, results primarily from motor circuit dysfunction, not motor neuron or muscle cell dysfunction, as is commonly thought. In a second study, the researchers identified the molecular pathway in SMA that leads to problems with motor function.
