Gene therapy for disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and Batten disease has seen success in animal models.
In the largest exome sequencing of autism spectrum disorder to date, researchers have identified 102 possible gene candidates.
Scientists at The Wellcome Sanger Institute have determined that the risk of suffering from a range of monogenic neurodevelopmental genetic disorders can be affected by common genetic variations.
At AAIC 2018, we had the pleasure of speaking with Catherine Kaczorowski about the innovative work she is doing to accelerate drug discovery in Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers have revealed that RNA-binding proteins accumulate in the brains of people with non-heritable amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia.
Researchers have developed a personalized neurological footprint, which uses a link between brain physiology, genetic profile and response to therapeutics, to predict the effectiveness of aiming treatment at various targets within individual patients.
Stem cells and brain organoids were the focus of a symposium during the FENS Forum of Neuroscience (7–11 July, Berlin,…
Scientists have demonstrated how variations in a gene linked to anxiety and depression could affect a patient’s response to treatment.
Research has demonstrated that traumatic effects caused by a stressful experience can lead to epigenetic changes to gene activity; these changes can be passed on, and therefore result in behavioral changes in future generations.
In an international collaboration, researchers have determined that psychiatric disorders may have important molecular similarities that are not reflected in current diagnostic categories.
