Researchers at Penn State University have developed an innovative technology to regenerate functional neurons after brain injury, and also in model systems used for research on Alzheimer's disease.
Imagine kicking a cocaine addiction by simply popping a pill that alters the way your brain processes chemical addiction.
There is more than meets the eye following even a mild traumatic brain injury. While the brain may appear to be intact, new findings reported in Nature suggest that the brain's protective coverings may feel the brunt of the impact.
The electrophysiological properties of potassium ion channels are regarded as a basic index for determining the functional differentiation of neural stem cells.
Mysterious brain cells called microglia are starting to reveal their secrets thanks to research conducted at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
Fish, unlike humans, can regenerate nerve connections and recover normal mobility following an injury to their spinal cord.
Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators have used a new sequencing method to identify a group of genes used by the brain's immune cells – called microglia – to sense pathogenic organisms, toxins or damaged cells that require their response.
Peripheral Nerve Repair Company demonstrates growth to qualify for Technology Fast 500™ List Alachua, FL (PRWEB) November 14, 2013 AxoGen, Inc.
New research by scientists at UC San Francisco shows that one of the brain's fundamental self-protection mechanisms depends on coordinated, finely calibrated teamwork among neurons and non-neural cells knows as glial cells, which until fairly recently were thought to be mere support cells for neurons.
Push to Walk staff attended the Working 2 Walk Science & Advocacy Symposium in Boston, Massachusetts on September 27 and September 28, 2013 hosted by Unite to Fight Paralysis. Riverdale,
Formation and Orientation The development of the brain is broken down into stages. The basic evolution begins in the third week of the embryonic process where the neural plate is formed. By week four, the neural plate has developed into the neural tube. The anterior part of the tube, the telencephalon, grows rapidly as it prepares to later give way to the brain. As time goes on, cells begin to classify themselves as either neurons or glial cells, thus determining their functions. Glial...
