How brain injury leads to seizures, memory problems

...tivity. "When lower levels of the KCC2 transporter weaken the dentate gyrus's ability to act as a gatekeeper," said Dr. Cohen, "neurons become more excitable, and seizures can occur." In addition to its role in inhibiting seizures, the dentate gyrus is also believed to be important in memory formation. ...

U-M researchers take new approach to defeating Gram-negative bugs

...ia coli bacteria, known as a Gram-negative bug, to weaken its defenses.

The computer model comprises 70 equations to account for the behavior of five proteins and three RNA molecules in the "NF-kappaB signaling pathway," which regulates genes involved in cancer, inflammation, immune function a...

Why do aneurysms form? New studies suggest leading role for white blood cells

...es of AAA formation, when the aorta wall begins to weaken and bulge. The researchers think the cells may somehow act in combination with other AAA risk factors such as smoking, high blood pressure and inherited genetic vulnerability. The U-M researchers made the findings in laboratory experiments on mice t...
