A ‘mini-brain’ model for studying Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease has been developed, which should allow researchers to study the disease in greater detail than in rodent and nonhuman primate models.
A promising new study could provide an early warning system to enable people with epilepsy to know when they are at risk of having a seizure.
A new study has determined that a simple change to the sleeping patterns of people known as ‘night owls’ can decrease depression and stress.
Researchers have created a blood–brain barrier chip utilizing human induced pluripotent stem cells, which could be utilized to understand neurological disorders on a patient-to-patient basis.
A recent study has opened up a method to reliably study neurological diseases utilizing human brain organoid models.
Researchers have recently found that the brains of children with severe epilepsy can be compensated by rewiring regions of the visual cortex after surgery.
A recent study has determined a connection between reduced redundant synapses of autism spectrum disorder mouse brains and exercise. This could offer a possibility of reversing behavioral defects seen in autism spectrum disorder.
Researchers have revealed that treatment with magnetic therapy could reverse symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury in rodents, potentially leading to novel treatment methods for individuals with concussion in the future.
In a recent study, researchers have discovered a possible link between high LDL cholesterol and early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.
For the first time, researchers have revealed that autism could result from mutations in the noncoding regions of the human genome.
