Latest Neurodegeneration Stories
A new study published 26th November in the open access journal PLOS Biology, identifies a new target in the search for therapeutic interventions for Huntington's disease – a devastating late-onset neurodegenerative disorder.
An organic compound that is often emitted by fungi has been found to cause symptoms of Parkinson’s disease in fruit flies, and could be linked to the neurodegenerative condition in humans, according to a new study.
A new toxic entity associated with genetically inherited forms of dementia and motor neuron disease has been identified by scientists at the UCL Institute of Neurology.
Researchers have discovered how the most common genetic abnormality in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD) kills neurons and have successfully developed a therapeutic strategy to block this neurodegeneration in neurons made from the skin cells of ALS patients.
Scientists at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital-The Neuro, McGill University, have made important discoveries about a cellular process that occurs during normal brain development and may play an important role in neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have created a new class of imaging agents that could allow them to view the biological processes that occur in the brain during the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
