Blocking immune system molecule in mice may help prevent disabilities after brain injury

Blocking immune system molecule in mice may help prevent disabilities after brain injury

Blocking an immune system molecule that accumulates after traumatic brain injury could significantly reduce the injury’s detrimental effects, according to a recent mouse study published in the peer-reviewed journal Science. The cerebral cortex, the part of the brain involved in thinking, memory and language, is often the primary site of head injury because it sits directly beneath […]

Researchers looking into noninvasive way to treat faulty brain cells

Researchers looking into noninvasive way to treat faulty brain cells

Researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have helped to create a noninvasive way to remove diseased cells from the brain without a scalpel.   According to a release, this method can remove faulty brain circuits, allowing doctors to treat various neurological diseases, such as epilepsy, without the need for conventional brain surgery. […]
