A deletion in chromosome 22 points to new genetic risk factors for Parkinson's disease.
FUS, a protein tied to neurodegeneration, normally mends DNA breaks, according to a paper in Nature Neuroscience.
It's not just for neurodevelopment anymore. Death receptor 6—known for pruning axons—also trims unused connections in adulthood, hinting at a function in Alzheimer's.
Proposed preclinical stages for Alzheimer’s disease predict well who is most likely to progress to Alzheimer’s dementia.
What’s better for future treatment of Parkinson’s: patient-derived or banked iPSCs? In comparison, patient’s own come out on top.
A new RNA interference therapy for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis has some success in mice and monkeys.
In the first study of its kind, researchers found a surprisingly low incidence of Lewy body dementias in a U.S. population.
The Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative has released whole genome sequences from 809 study volunteers.

By tracking Alzheimer’s research funding internationally, a new database could help sponsors coordinate research efforts.
People who carry the Huntington’s gene develop progressively abnormal brain metabolism a decade or more before diagnosis.
Clinical trials could prove the value of amyloid scans to health insurers.
An inhibitor of a cellular stress response prevents neurodegeneration in mice infected with prion protein, and might have potential in other neurodegenerative diseases.
A cancer drug-turned-Alzheimer’s prospect now appears to have potential against a third disease, reportedly protecting animal models from Parkinson’s damage.
