Astrocytes kindle neuronal hyperexcitability in mouse models of Huntington’s.
When a calcium sensor disappears from dendritic spines, synapse loss soon follows in Alzheimer’s models, aging mice, and diseased human brains.
Combining exome sequencing with gene interaction analysis allowed researchers to identify 18 new genes for an inherited movement disorder. This method could lead to genes linked to other neurodegenerative diseases.
Network analysis may explain why people with semantic dementia keep making memories even as their hippocampi degenerate.
