The Zika virus migrated from the mother's bloodstream and into the placenta, where it multiplied and spread into the fetal circulation before infecting the brains of fetuses in mouse models of the disease.
Researchers have confirmed a key way in which the Zika virus causes damage to fetal brains.
According to a new study, brain cells lining blood vessels produce a protein that impairs neuronal firing in the hippocampus during an antiviral immune response.
A new study confirms the Zika virus can be sexual transmitted.
A new study reports small amounts of genetic materials from the Zika virus can be detected in blood samples taken from pregnant women after the infection has passed and when fetal brain development is underway.
Researchers discover the cold sore virus, herpes simplex, resides within neurons. During times of stress, the virus reactivates and triggers symptoms associated with the disease.
A chimeric virus passes through the blood-bran barrier and destroys brain tumors in mice, a new study reports.
According to a new study, a protein implicated in some neurological diseases also plays an important role in how our bodies respond to viral infections.
