According to a new study, researchers have devised a new way to detect chemical damage to DNA that leads to genetic mutations which are responsible for an array of diseases, including ALS and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Galanin expressing neurons are selectively active during rebound sleep. The expression of galanin increases after neuronal activity and sleep deprivation. The neuropeptide plays a critical role in sleep homeostasis.
Researchers discover that a genetic mutation which arose over half a million years ago could be key to humans' ability to understand and produce speech.
A new study reports TGF-beta acts as a time signal which regulates neural stem cells' potential at different stages of brain development.
A new study outlines the mechanism involved in remyelination.
Researchers have developed a new approach that uses microRNA in combination with chemotherapy to help treat glioblastoma brain cancer. In preclinical models, the approach increases survival of the deadly brain cancer five fold.
