Northwestern Medicine scientists have rescued movement in a mouse model of Parkinson’s disease by restoring the intrinsic discharge of nerve cells within the subthalamic nucleus.
Northwestern Medicine scientists identified the mechanism that transports important neuroreceptors from sites outside to within the synapse, publishing their findings in Cell Reports.
Two Northwestern Medicine investigators were among five Northwestern University faculty recently awarded the prestigious Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered that the protein FMRP — the loss of which leads to Fragile X syndrome — is a novel reader of RNA methylation.
Gentle sound stimulation played during deep sleep enhanced deep or slow-wave sleep for people with mild cognitive impairment, who are at risk for Alzheimer’s disease, according to a Northwestern Medicine study.
A new study published in Developmental Cell discovered a link between a previously unknown mitochondrial process and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease Type 2, a genetic neuropathy.
Radhika Rawat, a student in the Medical Scientist Training Program, discusses how she plays an active role in the medical school and maintains balance outside of her MD/PhD studies.
Northwestern scientists have discovered how certain genetic mutations can weaken protein “quality control,” identifying a pathway that may contribute to neurodegenerative diseases.
A new Northwestern Medicine study has demonstrated that a combination of two mutations makes a form of pediatric brain tumors more deadly.
