Motor neuron disease (MND)
Scientists using a new motor neuron disease (MND) model have shown astrocytes may protect neurons from toxic TDP-43 protein aggregates in the early stages of disease.
MSD and the Francis Crick Institute will work together on a project to identify disease targets for motor neuron disease.
A study has used EEG to investigate the neuron networks that act abnormally in the condition, providing a significant step in the search for treatments.
