Using brain simulations, researchers report emergency cooling techniques could help to minimize long term damage that arises as a result of birth complications and limit the effects of stroke.
A new study sheds light on brain cells implicated in multiple sclerosis. Researchers found there are several types of oligodendrocytes, and the ratio of these cells differ significantly in those with MS. The findings could help develop new targeted treatments for progressive multiple sclerosis.
University of Edinburgh researchers have discovered a 'timetable' for brain aging. They report most of the changes in gene expression were complete by middle age and female brains appear to age at a slower rate than male brains. Researchers note the biggest reorganization of genes occurs around the age of 26.
A new study reports babies born prematurely show better brain development when fed breast milk rather than formula.
A Cell Reports study identifies molecules that allow Schwann cells to help regenerate nerves.
Lovastatin, a common statin usually prescribed to control cholesterol, corrected learning and memory deficits associated with Fragile X syndrome in rodent models.
A new study reports M cells found in the lining of the gut can help to protect the against prion infections.
