Virginia Tech researchers have received a grant to deploy a new brain imaging technology called optically pumped magnetometry which can assist with studying the nuances of social interactions.
A new zebrafish model holds the potential for future studies of glioblastoma, an aggressive and lethal brain cancer.
Study reveals the important role astrocytes play in maintaining blood-brain barrier health.
Glioma brain tumors alter the function of astrocytes, possibly contributing to seizures many brain cancer patients experience. Astrocytes encasing gliomas exhibit different molecular signatures based on their proximity to the cancer cells. Those directly touching the cancer cells become elongated and swollen, mimicking the astrocyte's response to other epilepsy-related brain injuries.
