Stem Cell Research Delivers New Points of Attack Against Parkinson’s Disease
In a seven-year research effort, an international team of scientists has clarified the cause for certain genetic forms of Parkinson’s disease, and has identified potential pharmacological treatments.
Scientists Discover Key Regulator of Neuron Function and Survival
Scientists studying neuronal energy metabolism found evidence that the loss of an important energy regulator called AMPK in neural stem cells or glial cells called astrocytes causes neuronal death in laboratory rodents. They also discovered that AMPK loss in neural stem cells or neurons causes spontaneous brain seizures in the animals.
