Researchers have developed FRW, a peptide that can bind to blood vessels without binding to other organs; this could lead to novel imaging techniques for neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have identified a cause of dementia with similar symptoms to Alzheimer’s disease; this development could improve diagnosis and treatment of dementia.
Researchers have developed a device that utilizes brain activity to control a virtual vocal tract; this could enhance the communication of individuals who have lost the ability to speak.
Researchers have demonstrated that cerebral organoids grown at the air–liquid interface are able to generate nerve tracts and stimulate muscle output; these could be used to improve understanding of neurological diseases such as dementia.
Researchers have revealed that a stroke could alter an individual’s microbiome even up to 1 month after it occurs; this has emphasized the importance of incorporating gut health in patient recovery and treatment.
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.
