Chronic spinal cord injury (SCI) is a formidable hurdle that prevents a large number of injured axons from crossing the lesion, particularly the corticospinal tract (CST). Patients inflicted with SCI … Continue Reading Researchers identify precision medicine to regenerate corticospinal tract axons.
Researchers have solved century-old mystery of why lone kidneys grow larger when the one other is lost.
Researchers from Georgia Regents University, Vanderbilt University, Texas A&M University, and Northwestern University have found an explanation for the century-old observation that if a person ends up with just one kidney, … Continue Reading Researchers have solved century-old mystery of why lone kidneys grow larger when the one other is lost.
Using proteomics techniques to study injured optic nerves, researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital have identified previously unrecognized proteins and pathways involved in nerve regeneration. The new study showed that adding … Continue Reading Researchers see an unprecedented degree of nerve regeneration using proteomics.
Recent research has linked autism with a lack of pruning in developing brain connections, but a new Dartmouth study suggests instead it is the excessive growth of new connections that … Continue Reading Researchers begin to map the epigenetic methylation of excessive brain connections in Autism.
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have demonstrated that whole-genome sequencing can be used to identify patients’ risk for hereditary cancer, which can potentially lead to improvements in cancer prevention, diagnosis, … Continue Reading Researchers confirm whole-genome sequencing can identify cancer-related mutations and risk.
