Researchers have demonstrated that there may be a link between playing professional soccer and developing ALS. Soccer players studied were almost twice as likely to develop the disease than the general population.
Researchers have identified a simple blood test that may be able to diagnose neurodegeneration before symptoms arise; this could lead to earlier diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers have developed an application that could detect when an opioid overdose has taken place; potentially leading to a greater number of individuals receiving medical help in this situation.
Researchers have developed a ‘pacemaker for the brain’, which can monitor and stimulate electric currents, potentially leading to novel treatments in individuals with neurological diseases.
Researchers have demonstrated a number of links between sleep disruption and brain disorders such as concussion, anxiety and dementia; these results could lead to potential circadian rhythm-related treatments in the future.
Researchers have revealed that taking a simple test within a week of a stroke may help to predict the long-term prognosis of a patient; this information could be beneficial for patients when making treatment and long-term care decisions.
Researchers have determined that the blood–brain barrier could be used as a possible biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease; this could potentially result in earlier diagnosis of the disease.
The MS-STAT2 trial is underway, with researchers investigating simvastatin as a potential treatment option for individuals with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.
Researchers have revealed that tetrahydrocannabinol, found in marijuana, may reduce the number of connections between areas of the brain that process pain; this could lead to pain relief in individuals with chronic radicular nerve pain.
