Human stem cell treatment restores motor function in paralyzed rats

...al cord trauma, such as might occur in a diving or car accident, is that in the ischemia model, no mechanical damage has occurred to the spinal cord,” said Marsala. “The spinal cord and brain motor centers are still partially connected, but there has been a selective loss of inhibitory neurons in the sp...

Proteins important in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease travel in the slow lane

... when they’re going to the same place anyway, like car pooling" speculates Roy. "Our study reveals novel aspects of axonal transport of an important class of proteins, namely the slow component-b proteins, and also opens up new avenues for investigating axonal transport defects in neurodegenerative d...

New research shows why too much memory may be a bad thing

"If we continue with the car analogy, the Green Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, which resulted in high-yielding semidwarf rice varieties, focused on providing a new, more compact body for the rice plant," Dr. Sheehy added. "But we have never really got under the hood and trie...
