Altering Huntington's Patients' Skin Cells Into Brain Cells Sheds Light on Disease

Feb. 5, 2018 — Scientists have transformed skin cells from patients with Huntington's disease into the type of brain cell affected by the disorder. The resulting mass of neurons serves as a new tool to study ... read more

Jan. 29, 2018 — The symptoms of Huntington's disease typically appear in middle age, but new research shows that neural abnormalities are evident much earlier, in the first steps of embryonic development. The ... read more

Commonalities in Brains of People With Huntington's Disease and Parkinson's Disease

Jan. 12, 2018 — A new study strongly suggests that the brains of people who have died of Huntington's disease (HD) and Parkinson's disease (PD) show a similar response to a lifetime of neurodegeneration, ... read more

Scheduled Feeding Improves Neurodegenerative Symptoms in Mice

Jan. 2, 2018 — Restricting meals to the same time each day improves motor activity and sleep quality in a mouse model of Huntington's disease, according to new research. These findings suggest that eating on a ... read more

Possible Biomarker for Huntington's Disease

Jan. 2, 2018 — A new discovery of a potential biomarker for Huntington's disease (HD) could mean a more effective way of evaluating the effectiveness of treatments for this neurological disease. The findings ... read more

Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Huntington's Diseases Share Common Crucial Feature

May 23, 2017 — A study has found that abnormal proteins found in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases share a similar ability to cause damage when they invade brain cells. The finding ... read more

Basis of 'Leaky' Brain Blood Vessels in Huntington's Disease Identified

May 16, 2017 — By using induced pluripotent stem cells to create endothelial cells that line blood vessels in the brain for the first time for a neurodegenerative disease, neurobiologists and colleagues have ... read more
