A new study reports brain cells may preferentially activate a copy of one parent's genes over the other in offspring.
A new genetics test for COVID-19 has been developed by an international team of researchers. The full genome sequencing test can not only provide accurate results in less than two minutes, but it can also extract intricate and highly complex genetic data about the strain of the coronavirus infection.
A new study reports on a possible reason for accelerated cell deterioration in Parkinson's disease.
Researchers debate the roles of the gut and brain hormones play in regulating appetite and metabolism.
According to a new study, the absence of the pejvakin molecule appears to be responsible for noise induced hearing loss.
Microglia creates dense-core plaques which help to clear away more wispy plaques from neurons, preventing cell death. Findings suggest the dense-core plaques play a defensive role in protecting the brain from the ravages of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's.
Study identified five genes, including two novel genes, associated with Lewy Body dementia. Researchers also found the genetic profiles of patients with LBD showed higher chances of also suffering from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease than other age-matched control subjects.
A new study compares genetic influences in families of children diagnosed with autism.
