One experiment: A beautiful brain, neuron by neuron

What you see here is not a pointillist masterpiece. It is a rendering of the mouse brain, from above, formed by millions of colored dots. Like the famous canvases painted by post-Impressionist Georges...

Tau passive immunization blocks seeding and spread of Alzheimer hyperphosphorylated Tau-induced pathology in 3 × Tg-AD mice

Accumulating evidence indicates that Tau pathology can spread from neuron to neuron by intake and coaggregation of the hyperphosphorylated Tau (p-Tau) seeds with the host neuron protein. Thus, clearan...

Neuron by neuron: We often examine the brain too closely to see the big picture

Studying Changing Neuron Size May Lead to New Therapies for Motor Neuron Disease

Scientists say they have improved our understanding of how motor neurons respond to motor neuron disease, which could help researchers identify new treatment options. The Wright State Univer...

Changing size of neurons could shed light on new treatments for motor neuron disease

New research improves our understanding of how motor nerve cells (neurons) respond to motor neuron disease, which could help us identify new treatment options.

New pathogenic mechanism of motor neuron disorders

Scientists have found a previously unknown pathogenic mechanism of motor neuron disorders. The discovery may lead to a rethinking in drug development.

Learning Gene Passes between Neurons via Retrovirus-Like Mechanism

A neuron’s genetic material can literally “go viral.” The genetic material, messenger RNA (mRNA) from the Arc gene, can be passed from neuron to neuron via extracellular vesicles and capsids, ra...

How do adult brain circuits regulate new neuron production?

(University of North Carolina Health Care) UNC school of Medicine researchers identified a brain circuit that controls neuron development in the adult brain. It runs from near the front of the brain b...

The Drosophila Carbon Dioxide Receptor as Key Regulator of Odor Valence.

In this issue of Neuron, MacWilliam et al. (2018) show that the insect carbon dioxide receptor can also detect odorants from different chemical classes, the valence of which is determined by whether ...

Antibiotic drug piperacillin induces neuron cell death through mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative damage.

Although nerve damage/toxicity has been shown to be one of the side effects in patients given prolonged antibiotic treatment, the mechanisms of the action of antibiotics on neuron cells are not clear....

To Fight or Not to Fight.

In this issue of Neuron, Watanabe et al. (2017) uncover how octopamine, an invertebrate norepinephrine analog, modulates the neural pathways that bias Drosophila males toward aggression.

Incorporating upper motor neuron health in ALS drug discovery.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a complex disease, affecting the motor neuron circuitry. After consecutive failures in clinical trials for the past 20 years, edaravone was recently approved as ...

Clinical Trials [76 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Levetiracetam for Cramps, Spasticity and Neuroprotection in Motor Neuron Disease

Levetiracetam (Keppra) is used to treat partial onset seizures. Its biological effects suggest it might also be useful in treating 3 aspects of human motor neuron diseases (MNDs) for whic...

Genetics of Pediatric-Onset Motor Neuron and Neuromuscular Diseases
