ALS: Genetics

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by muscle weakness. ALS is a genetically heterogeneous disorder with several causative genes. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to the genetics of this disease.

Cognitive Decline: Environmental & Genetic Factors

This feed focuses on the role of environmental and genetic factors including environmental policies, disease susceptibility, and socioeconomic status on cognitive decline. Here is the latest research.

Epigenetic Changes in Pain

Targeted epigenetic interventions provide the tools to prevent nociceptive sensitization, mood-related symptoms, and other adaptations that occur in response to injury or inflammation, which will facilitate pain management and improve treatment efficacy in many chronic pain conditions. Here is the latest research on the epigenetics changes in pain.

Epigenetic Regulation of Microglia Functions

Microglial cells are instrumental in the maintenance of homeostasis in the CNS and can contribute to neurodegenerative disorders. Epigenetic mechanisms and transcriptional regulation may be potential therapeutic targets for their activation or suppression. Discover the latest research on epigenetic regulation of microglial functions here.

Gene-Environment Interaction & Behaviour

Gene-environment interaction is when two different genotypes respond to environmental variation in different ways.Genes and environment interact to form an individual's personality. Abnormal or extreme behaviour could thus be explained by hereditary factors in combination with poor environmental conditions.

Genetic Influences on Brain Development

The genetic landscape of an individual can have drastic effects on brain development and brain developmental disorders. Discover the latest research here.

Genetic Networks Underlying Habituation

Habituation, the gradual waning of an evoked behavioral response with repeated stimulation, is a basic and universal form of learning. This feed explores the genetic networks that are involved in the occurence of habituation.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Genetics of Pain

Subtle changes in DNA could partly explain the variation in individual differences in pain. There is growing evidence that a number of genes play a critical role in determining pain sensitivity, pain reporting and susceptibility to developing chronic pain and their response to surgical outcomes primarily, pain.

Immunogenetics of CNS Tumors

Central nervous system (CNS) tumors have a unique tumor immune microenvironment, where immune cells can play a role in disease progression and resistance to therapy. Studying the immunogenetics of these cells can uncover mechanisms underlying their role in CNS tumors. Here is the latest research.
