Functional neuromuscular organoids have been developed that self-organize into spinal cord neurons and muscle tissue, paving the way for a new avenue to study human neuromuscular system development and disease.
Researchers have discovered that alterations in the gut microbiome of rats recovering from spinal cord injury could be associated with their mental health. This provides a lead to potentially treating mental health issues related to spinal cord injuries with bacteriotherapy.
The bacteria Bacillus subtilis has been found to prevent α-synuclein build up in C. elegans, offering further support to the idea that the gut microbiome can influence brain activity.
English and Italian speakers who have dementia-related language impairments may experience distinctive speech and reading difficulties based on features of their native languages.
A team of researchers discovered that in mice, short-chain fatty acids found in the gut have the potential to protect brain cells from potential damage due to inflammation following a stroke.
The amount of sleep we get could be associated with certain miRNAs, according to a study investigating miRNA levels in children and adolescents. This could potentially lead to a blood test to reveal sleep deprivation.
An advanced optical imaging technique coupled with an artificial intelligence algorithm has been demonstrated to accurately detect brain tumors, according to a recent study.
Researchers have discovered that a gene-editing technique, which silences gene transmitting pain signals, is effective in mice that had been suffering from the painful effects of chemotherapy.
A team of researchers has discovered that changes in speed of electrical signals across the optic nerves may reflect recovery of the myelin loss during multiple sclerosis.
Having previously been demonstrated to allow dopamine replenishment, results of a recent clinical trial suggest nilotinib could be a safe and well-tolerated treatment for individuals with Parkinson’s disease.
