Researchers have identified the gene STMN2 as a novel biomarker and potential drug target for ALS.
A new study reveals many inhibitory neurons are lost in early phases of ALS and FTD development. The findings show a contrast to other neurodegenerative diseases where excitatory neurons are lost early in the disorders.
