Using MRI, EEG and clinical characteristics, the pre-surgical workup can predict if patients with epilepsy will benefit from a more invasive examination.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered a biomarker for one type of autism within cerebrospinal fluid, according to a recent study.
Northwestern investigators have discovered the molecular signature of a subset of dopaminergic neurons that increases their vulnerability to degeneration.
Long chains of fatty acids in the lysosome are associated with a degenerative form of Gaucher disease, an inherited condition related to Parkinson’s disease.
A new study has shown that the degeneration of brain motor neurons in ALS is not merely a byproduct of the spinal motor neuron degeneration, and is a target for future treatments for the disease.
A combination of drugs could fix the broken lysosomal enzyme pathway in Parkinson’s disease-afflicted neurons, according to a recent study.
A recent study identified a gene that is critical for daily behavioral rhythms, involved in a molecular pathway by which the core circadian clock controls daily sleep-wake cycles.
A new injectable therapy harnesses “dancing molecules” to reverse paralysis and repair tissue after severe spinal cord injuries, allowing animal subjects to regain the ability to walk.
The damaging effects of toxic proteins created in one inherited form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are mediated by an enzyme called SPOP.
