Neuroimaging shows that astrocytes are responsible for joining the 2 halves of the brain together.

A significant milestone in the evolution of the mammalian brain is the emergence of the corpus callosum, which is exclusively present in placental mammals.  This commissure forms the largest axon … Continue Reading Neuroimaging shows that astrocytes are responsible for joining the 2 halves of the brain together.

Cell therapy successfully promotes axon remyelination in an animal model.

Demyelinating diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and leukodystrophy, are characterized by damage to the protective myelin sheath that surrounds the axons of neurons. This demyelination can be caused by an … Continue Reading Cell therapy successfully promotes axon remyelination in an animal model.
