- A neurological disease paradigm shifton January 23, 2024 at 5:21 pm
Scientists argue that Parkinson's disease complexity demands a new way of classifying the disease for research purposes, one based not on clinical diagnosis but biology. The authors have called their biological model 'SynNeurGe'.
- Using magnetized neurons to treat Parkinson's disease symptomson January 18, 2024 at 8:07 pm
Electrical deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a well-established method for treating disordered movement in Parkinson's disease. However, implanting electrodes in a person's brain is an invasive and imprecise way to stimulate nerve cells. Researchers report a new application for the technique, called magnetogenetics, that uses very small magnets to wirelessly trigger specific, gene-edited nerve cells in the brain. The treatment effectively relieved motor symptoms in mice without damaging surrounding brain tissue.
- SARS-CoV-2 can infect dopamine neurons causing senescenceon January 17, 2024 at 7:39 pm
A new study reported that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID, can infect dopamine neurons in the brain and trigger senescence -- when a cell loses the ability to grow and divide. The researchers suggest that further research on this finding may shed light on the neurological symptoms associated with long COVID such as brain fog, lethargy and depression.
- A common marker of neurological diseases may play role in healthy brainson January 9, 2024 at 10:05 pm
Researchers have discovered that a protein called phosphorylated -synuclein, which is associated with several neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and Lewy body dementia, is also involved in the normal processes of how neurons communicate with each other in a healthy brain.
- Inspired by Greek mythology, this potential drug shows promise for vanquishing Parkinson's RNA in early studieson January 9, 2024 at 10:05 pm
A new discovery takes its inspiration from Greek mythology. The compound is described as a chimera, because it battles a toxic cause of Parkinson's in two ways.
