Scientists generate human embryonic stem cell lines from adult donor cells, building on earlier studies that showed this was possible with fetal cells.
Scientists claim that AV-133, an imaging agent that visualizes dopaminergic neurons, can gauge progression of Parkinson’s disease.
Tirasemtiv, a drug thought to make muscles more sensitive to signals from motor neurons, failed to improve muscle function in people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
New research suggests that dendritic tau may participate in synaptic plasticity, and that Aβ disrupts this function.
Nucleotide repeat expansions in the C9ORF72 gene occur in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia. Now researchers find the same repeats in patients with two other neurological disorders.
