Abstract

Characterizing demyelination/degeneration of spinal pathways in traumatic spinal cord injured (SCI) patients is crucial for assessing the prognosis of functional rehabilitation. Novel techniques based on diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetization transfer...read more

Wallerian Degeneration

Wallerian Degeneration refers to active degeneration of part of the axon distal to the injury in response to nerve fiber damage. Here is the latest research on aspects underlying this degeneration

Cajal Bodies & Gems

Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.

Spinal Cord Neoplasms

Spinal cord neoplasms affect the spinal cord and arise from either within the spinal cord or from extramedullary structures that surround the spinal cord. The cancer can arise from different cell types such as the meninges surrounding the spinal cord, glial or nerve cells within the CNS. Here is the latest research on spinal cord neoplasms.

CSF & Lymphatic System

This feed focuses on Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) and the lymphatic system. Discover the latest papers using imaging techniques to track CSF outflow into the lymphatic system in animal models.

Myelin Plasticity

Myelin plasticity, as another form of activity-dependent plasticity, is relevant not only to nervous system development but also to complex information processing tasks that involve coupling and synchrony among different brain rhythms. Several cellular, molecular, and epigenetic mechanisms have been investigated as contributors to myelin plasticity. Find the latest research on myelin plasticity here.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are serious and can cause temporary or permanent changes including loss of muscle function, sensation, or autonomic functions. Here is the latest research.

Neural Dynamics in Primates

Here is the latest research on neuroelectrophysiology and thalmo-cortical and neural dynamics in primates.

Brain developing: Influences & Outcomes

This feed focuses on influences that affect the developing brain including genetics, fetal development, prenatal care, and gene-environment interactions. Here is the latest research in this field.

Mechanisms of Axon Degeneration

The mechanism of axonal degeneration is still poorly understood, but studies in animal models have suggested some cellular and molecular mechanisms responsible. The degeneration of axons in the CNS has been found to be characteristic of many neurodegenerative diseases. Discover the latest research on the mechanisms of axon degeneration here.

Neuromyelitis Optica

Neuromyelitis optica is an inflammatory disease characterized by selective demyelination of the spinal cord and optic nerves. Discover the latest research on neuromyelitis optica here.
