Study offers clues to how neurons can rewire and restore pathways following injury or illness.
A new study reports exposure to airborne manganese in welding fumes contribute to Parkinson's like neurological problems.
A new study, using mouse models, demonstrates sensory deprivation can activate the brain to rewire networks following a stroke. The findings could have major implications for stroke rehabilitation in humans.
Researchers from WUSTL have identified a compound that targets APOE in mouse brains and which protects against Alzheimer's disease. The APOE4 genetic variant increases the risk of people developing Alzheimer's disease. The findings offer new possible avenues of treating the disease in humans.
A new study reveals that by the age of three, children are already starting to follow complex rules and patterns that govern how letters fit together to make words.
Fenofibrate, an FDA-approved drug commonly used to treat high cholesterol, activated support cells around sensory neurons in mouse models of spinal cord injury, helping them regrow twice as fast as a placebo.
