When neurons were exposed to a growth factor known as brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), this inhibition was overcome and Limk1 became active again, enhancing spine growth.
Findings could lead to new treatments for epileptic seizures and chronic fatigue.
Immunosuppressive Drug Appears Effective in Reducing New Brain Lesions in Multiple Sclerosis Patients
A medication that reduces relapse rates in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) appears to be effective in reducing new brain inflammatory lesions.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has found evidence of brain enlargement in a relatively large sample of children with autism, compared with children who do not have the disorder.
Multiple Sclerosis symptoms vary from person to person. In about 85 percent of cases, Multiple Sclerosis shows a pattern of remission.
Treating four or more brain tumors in a single radiosurgery session resulted in improved survival compared to whole brain radiation therapy alone.
Scientists have found that a specific neurodevelopmental gene, called neuroD2, is related to the development of an almond shaped area of the brain called the amygdala, the brain's emotional seat.
A new type of drug therapy that is currently being tested in Canada could significantly reduce the death rate caused by the deadliest form of stroke and provide treatment.
Autism is a neurological disorder that typically is diagnosed within the first three years of life, when affected children fail to meet normal developmental milestones.
Symptoms of Stroke include a sudden thunder like headache and change in vision. Other signs of stroke include a sudden onset of weakness in either arms or legs.
Researchers have discovered a new mechanism by which chronically high levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine exert their effects on the brain.
Neurological complication may result from rapid withdrawal from pregabalin, more studies needed.
The FDA approved the first blood test designed to help predict a patient's risk for ischemic stroke, the most common type of stroke
This time, the tumor invaded one of the main veins of the brain, so surgery was not an option. Radiosurgery is the non invasive delivery of a precise dose of high energy radiation to shrink or control the growth of a tumor.
The Alexian Neurosciences Institute is taking a quantum leap forward in the treatment of stroke patients with the establishment of a neuroendovascular program.
Brain surgery will never be easy, but surgeons new instrumentation in the operating room when it comes to removing tumors with less risk.
Researchers have discovered a genetically controlled brain mechanism responsible for social behavior in humans.
Hospitalizations for stroke appear to be on the rise, and stroke will continue to be a significant healthcare issue in the future.
The first direct analysis of the interactions between two brain networks that govern visual attention may help researchers working to develop treatments for stroke patients with a condition known as spatial neglect.
A stroke can be a treatable disease if taken to a facility with specialty trained staff. Strokes often result in irreversible damage such as paralysis and loss of speech.
