In early stages of ALS, autophagy helps to suppress disease progression, but accelerates the spread as the disease enters into later stages, researchers report.
Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital have developed a therapeutic cocktail of molecules that restored fine motor skills in mice with spinal cord injuries. When applied to mice who had experienced stroke symptoms, researchers observed increased axon sprouting in subcortical areas.
Researchers report spinal cord cross sectional area is not a good predictor of axonal loss in multiple sclerosis.
Researchers report the posterior parietal cortex may be implicated in the movement of our hands.
Researchers use CRISPR to modulate genes in order to reduce tissue damage and inflammation for people with neck and back pain.
Researchers report genes that exhibit the greatest left-right differences in embryos are also implicated in an increased risk of developing schizophrenia.
Spontaneous limb and body movements of newborn rats serve to synchronize spinal neurons, researchers report.
