New insights in the search for treatments for neurological diseases

The fine details of a mechanism that provides more insight in the communication between neurons has been revealed by a team of scientists. The research has clarified how damaged synapses — the connection points between neurons — are repaired to keep communication between neurons at an optimal level. Disturbances in these mechanisms are believed to play a role in the development of neurodegenerative diseases, such as dementia, ALS or Parkinson’s disease. —> Read More
