Transplanted neural stem cells (NSCs) developed by Stemedica Cell Technologies, Inc., a leader in adult allogeneic stem cell manufacturing, research and development were successful in treating rats with spinal cord injury (SCI). The research conducted by Ivan Cheng, M.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, was presented at the North American Spine Society Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL on November 2, 2011. San Diego, CA (PRWEB)...

Mice become profoundly anti-social when the creation of new brain cells is interrupted in adolescence, a surprising finding that may help researchers understand schizophrenia and other mental disorders, Yale researchers report. When the same process is interrupted in adults, no such behavioral changes were noted, according to research published in the Oct. 4 issue of the journal Neuroscience. "This has important implications in understanding social development at the molecular level,"...

Patented MRI Reporter Technology Could Inform Treatment for Brain Injury and Neurological Disease Carnegie Mellon University biologists have developed an MRI-based technique that allows researchers to non-invasively follow neural stem cells in vivo. The recently patented technology could be used to further the study of neural stem cells and inform the development of new treatments for brain injury caused by trauma, stroke, Parkinson´s disease and other neurological disorders. The...

Collaborative study using Allen Spinal Cord Atlas finds previously overlooked cell type with implications for treating spinal cord injury and disease The Allen Institute for Brain Science announced today the discovery of a new class of cells in the spinal cord that act like neural stem cells, offering a fresh avenue in the search for therapies to treat spinal cord injury and disease. The published collaborative study, authored by scientists from the University of British Columbia, the...

When developing babies are growth restricted in the womb, they are typically born with heads that are large relative to their bodies. The growing brain is protected at the expense of other, less critical organs. Now, researchers reporting in the August 5th issue of Cell, a Cell Press publication, unearth new molecular evidence that explains just how the brain is spared. In studies of rapidly growing fruit fly larvae, they've traced this developmental phenomenon to the activity of a gene...
