UT Southwestern researchers uncover new brain pathways for understanding Type 2 diabetes and obesity.

Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have identified neural pathways that increase understanding of how the brain regulates body weight, energy expenditure, and blood glucose levels, a discovery that can … Continue Reading UT Southwestern researchers uncover new brain pathways for understanding Type 2 diabetes and obesity.

Successful ‘brain-on-a-chip’ axonal strain injury model developed.

Researchers from the  Rutgers University have demonstrated the use of their ‘brain-on-a-chip’ microsystem to assess specific effects of traumatic axonal injury. While their model uses the three dimensional cell structure … Continue Reading Successful ‘brain-on-a-chip’ axonal strain injury model developed.

Neurons, brain cancer cells require the same little-known protein for long-term survival.

Researchers at the UNC School of Medicine have discovered that the protein PARC/CUL9 helps neurons and brain cancer cells override the biochemical mechanisms that lead to cell death in most … Continue Reading Neurons, brain cancer cells require the same little-known protein for long-term survival.
