Epilepsy and Sudden Death Linked to Bad Gene

In sudden death in epilepsy, people stop breathing for no apparent reason and die. Now, a group of UConn neuroscientists have a lead as to why. Many neurologists argue that a bad seizure can travel ... read more

Schizophrenia: Adolescence Is the Game-Changer

Schizophrenia may be related to the deletion syndrome. However, not everyone who has the syndrome necessarily develops psychotic symptoms. What triggers the illness? Researchers (UNIGE) have provided ... read more

Developmental Disorders: Discovery of New Mutations

In the largest study to date on developmental delay, researchers analyzed genomic data from over 31,000 parent-child trios and found more than 45,000 de novo mutations, and 40 novel genes. This will ... read more

Women undergo a significant mental as well as physical change during the late stages of ... read more

First Blood-Brain Barrier Chip Using Stem Cells

Researchers have, for the first time, duplicated a patient's blood-brain barrier (BBB), creating a human BBB chip with stem cells, which can be used to develop personalized medicine and new ... read more

Targeting Key Gene Could Help Lead to Down Syndrome Treatment

Targeting a key gene before birth could someday help lead to a treatment for Down syndrome by reversing abnormal embryonic brain development and improving cognitive function after birth, according to ... read more

A new study that compared the effects of cold and warm temperatures on the development of frog eggs into larvae found that environmental temperature significantly changes how the nervous system ... read more

Defects in Heart Valve Cilia During Fetal Development Cause Mitral Valve Prolapse

Genetic mutations in heart valve cells of the developing fetus lead to mitral valve prolapse, report a global collaborative of researchers. These mutations or genetic variations cause defects in ... read more

Early Dengue Virus Infection Could 'Defuse' Zika Virus

The Zika virus outbreak in Latin America has affected over 60 million people up to now. The infection can have potentially fatal consequences for pregnant women and their unborn children: many ... read more

3D-Printed 'Hyperelastic Bone' May Help Generate New Bone for Skull Reconstruction

Defects of the skull and facial bones can pose difficult challenges for plastic and reconstructive surgeons. A synthetic material called hyperelastic bone -- readily produced by 3D-printing -- could ... read more

Changes in gene activity in specific brain cells are associated with the severity of autism in children and young adults with the disorder, according to a new ... read more

Why Adults at Risk for Huntington's Choose Not to Learn If They Inherited Deadly Gene

As many as 90 percent of individuals who have a parent with Huntington's disease (HD) choose not to take a gene test that reveals if they will also develop the fatal disorder -- and a new study ... read more
