Researchers adapt a medical test, previously developed to measure a toxin found in smokers, to measure the same toxin in people suffering from MS and spinal cord injuries.
Researchers have identified an abnormal metabolic pathway which drives cancer cell growth in particular glioblastoma brain cancer subtypes.
A new study supports growing evidence that the nervous system and nerve growth factor (NGF) play a significant role in arthritis. The findings also suggest reducing elevated NGF levels could be key in developing treatments for arthritis pain.
Researchers identify the sleep mechanism which enables the brain to consolidate emotional memory. Additionally, they discovered a popular sleep medication heightens the response to and recollection of negative memories.
Researchers have shown stress on preadolesecent and adult male mice induced an epigenetic mark in their sperm which reprogrammed their offspring's HPA axis, a region the the brain which governs stress response.
A new study provides evidence that the central amygdala, an area of the brain associated with emotion, plays a major role in sustaining cocaine addiction.
Researchers have developed a new MRI neuroimaging technique which detects brain lesions associated with multiple sclerosis in finer detail than ever before. The technique could be a powerful tool for evaluating new treatment options for the disease.
Researchers have successfully measured a significant difference between the brains of patients with an inherited form of Alzheimer's disease and their healthy family members who do not carry the genetic mutation for the disease.
A new study finds slowdowns in the transport and delivery of proteins, nutrients and signaling molecules within nerve cells could contribute to the development of ALS.
Researchers discover a mother's higher exposure to some common environmental contaminants are associated with more vigorous and frequent motor activity. The results show the fetus is susceptible to environmental exposure and this can be detected by measuring fetal neurobehavior.
