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.
Aggressively treating high blood pressure and cholesterol in older adults with diabetes does not prevent cognitive decline, and results in more brain shrinkage.
A new grant opportunity will fund projects aimed at understanding the similarities and differences between biomarkers of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
In a cell culture system, astrocytes from people with ALS kill motor neurons. The model could yield more discoveries about the fundamental biology of this disease.
Scientists claim to turn differentiated mouse cells into pluripotent ones with a brief dip in an acid bath—no genetic tweaks necessary.
