Latest Neurodegenerative disease Stories
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.
The steady accumulation of a protein in healthy, aging brains may explain seniors' vulnerability to neurodegenerative disorders.
A team of University of Alberta researchers has identified a new class of compounds that inhibit the spread of prions, misfolded proteins in the brain that trigger lethal neurodegenerative diseases in humans and animals.
Researchers recently announced that they were able to produce stem cells from skin cells from a person who had severe, early-onset form of Huntington Disease.
Using a human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) from a patient suffering from Huntington’s disease, researchers at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging have corrected the genetic mutation that is responsible for the disease.
