In this interview, Marika tells us about her research on tissue clearing and imaging, including her opinion on what the biggest ‘hot topic’ in neurodegeneration is.
Researchers have reported successful creation of spinal cord neural stem cells that could provide a scalable source of replacements cells for spinal cord injuries.
A preliminary study has revealed that athletes with ADHD may be at greater risk for experiencing persistent anxiety and depression after a concussion.
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.
