A rare form of childhood epilepsy could be improved with a therapy called antisense oligonucleotide, following the development of a new model.
To address the receptor dysfunction associated with several neurological diseases, scientists have provided novel insights into a protein-protein interaction that could lead to more effective treatments.
A new experimental drug was shown by researchers to restore natural brain rhythms in mouse models of Alzheimer’s and promote learning and memory.
Unlike synthetic compound libraries, natural product hits must be identified and characterised, as the molecule is often unknown. Venom peptides are often inherently stable due to cysteine knots whereas other peptides may not be. Steve and Carol Trim discuss the challenges of the hit-to-lead journey with these non-standard hits.
Researchers have revealed the 3D structure of a membrane protein which plays a role in the development of conditions such as epilepsy and blindness.
A novel antibody-enzyme fusion therapeutic strategy for Lafora disease has shown effectiveness in pre-clinical study mice models.
Scientists at Penn State find that heartbeat irregularities connected to brain activity abnormalities may pave the way to predict onset of epilepsy in certain patients…
Long-term use of either cannabis or cannabis-based drugs impairs memory...
Method uncovers a promising new use for a well-known cancer drug in stopping difficult-to-treat seizures...
New findings from an NIH-funded study of mice suggest that loss of mossy cells may contribute to seizures and memory problems in a form of epilepsy.
Experimental activation of a small set of nerve cells in the brain prevents convulsive seizures in a mouse model of temporal lobe epilepsy.
A tiny microRNA has been shown to play a beneficial role in protecting the brain from epileptic seizures in specially engineered transgenic mice.
