Researchers identify a new gene involved in Multiple Sclerosis.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disease, characterised by demyelination and the onset of chronic, neurodegenerative damage of the central nervous system. Right now, its causes are unknown although various … Continue Reading Researchers identify a new gene involved in Multiple Sclerosis.

Brain map researchers release first of it’s kind data on the aging human brain and traumatic brain injury.

Dementia is a common illness with an incidence that is rising as the aged population increases.  A multitude of neurodegenerative illnesses have an associated dementia, including corticobasal degeneration, Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, … Continue Reading Brain map researchers release first of it’s kind data on the aging human brain and traumatic brain injury.

Human study identifies genetic variation for type and rate of physical decline Parkinson’s disease.

With Parkinson’s disease clinicians have long noted that the presence of tremors, rather than balance and walking problems is the initial or dominant symptom and hypothesize this may even suggest … Continue Reading Human study identifies genetic variation for type and rate of physical decline Parkinson’s disease.

Neuroimaging shows genetics and environment affect different regions of brain.

It is known that glucose is an essential fuel for brain energy metabolism as well as oxygen.  Functional activation of neurons is normally associated with increases in the local cerebral … Continue Reading Neuroimaging shows genetics and environment affect different regions of brain.

Large-scale study identifies new epigenetic subtypes of brain cancer.

Diffuse gliomas represent 80% of all malignant brain tumours. Adult diffuse gliomas are classified and graded according to histological criteria.  However, although histopathology classification is well established it suffers from unstandardized, … Continue Reading Large-scale study identifies new epigenetic subtypes of brain cancer.

Study identifies neurogenetics that link abnormal neurodevelopment to ASD.

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are a group of highly inheritable behavioural disorders. Patients with ASD have mild to severe communication difficulties, repetitive behaviour and social challenges. Such disorders significantly challenge … Continue Reading Study identifies neurogenetics that link abnormal neurodevelopment to ASD.
