VCU Researchers Identify Networks Of Genes Responding To Alcohol In The Brain

...roduction of myelin. Myelin is a form of molecular insulation that allows nerve cells to send impulses to one another more effectively. Such pathways showed different responses to alcohol in one mouse strain versus the other. As a result, Miles and his colleagues were able to formulate new hypotheses about how ...

Scientists discover the molecular switch for nerve cells' insulating jelly rolls

... that turns on the production of myelin, the fatty insulation around nerve cells that ensures swift and efficient communication in the nervous system. The study, published in the September 1, 2005, issue of the journal Neuron, may provide a new avenue for treating nervous system diseases such as multiple sclero...

Imaging study links key genetic risk for Alzheimer's disease to myelin breakdown

...ws that age-related breakdown of myelin, the fatty insulation coating the brain's internal wiring, correlates strongly with the presence of a key genetic risk factor for Alzheimer disease. The findings are detailed in the January edition of the peer-reviewed journal Archives of General Psychiatry and add to a ...

Alaska seal pup diet may hold key to decline of population
