Researchers uncover a vital mechanism which underlies the sensory feedback which helps guide balance and limb movement.
Huntington’s disease research using simple organisms such as baker’s yeast has yielded new information about underlying mechanisms of Huntington’s disease...
Axolotl salamander genes that allow the neural tube and nerve fibers to regenerate after spinal cord damage have been identified. These genes are also found in humans, but are activated differently.
Using computer assisted technology to map cell types and molecular cascades, researchers have discovered potential new treatment strategies for recurrent Sonic Hedgehog Medulloblastoma.
Researchers have identified an enzyme associated with aggressive gliomas.
Researchers have discovered a link between teenage tobacco use and an increased risk of psychotic experiences, such as paranoia and hallucinations. They report this may be due, in part, to some shared genetic influences.
Researchers administered PTB antisense oligonucleotide treatment directly to the midbrain of mice. In the mouse models exposed to the treatment, a small subset of astrocytes converted to neurons, increasing the number of neurons by 30%. Three months after treatment, mice were completely free of Parkinson's disease symptoms and remained in remission for the rest of their lives.
