Myeloid cells can suppress the immune response, allowing ****** cancer cells to metastasize in the brain and form secondary tumor sites.
A mutation in a gene associated with circadian rhythm extends the clock period, causing people to stay up late at night and sleep late in the mornings.
Mutations to the MARK4 gene causes the properties of tau to change, making them more likely to aggregate and become more insoluble.
Pigment-dispersing factor, a signalling protein that helps the brain keep track of time, also helps to regulate memory formation.
Study reveals a new role for serotonin in the development of the human neocortex. Serotonin acts cell-extrinsically as a growth factor for basal progenitors in the developing neocortex. Researchers report placenta-driven serotonin likely contributed to…
Herpes virus simplex type 1 infection can spread to the fetal brain during pregnancy, resulting in an increased risk of neurodevelopmental disabilities and neurological deficits.
Genetic variants of ROBO1 in young children are associated with gray matter volume in the right parietal cortex. This, in turn, predicts mathematical tests scored by second grade.
A distinct DNA methylation signature has been discovered in cord blood of children who are later diagnosed with autism. The findings could provide a new biomarker for early detection and intervention for ASD.
Study implicates the PIEZO2 gene in experiencing the urge to *******. The gene helps at least two cell types in the brain to identify when the bladder is full and needs emptying.
Recovery from multiple sclerosis-like symptoms in mice depends upon the ability for microglia to break down the remains of damaged cells.
