RNA modifications provide new insights into disease brain states

Recently, researchers have used advanced microscopy to investigate the role that RNA modifications play in ‘synaptic tagging’ within the brain. […]

Changes in gut microbiome associated with brain damage in infants

In a new study, published in Cell Host & Microbe, researchers identified changes in the gut microbiome that are associated […]

Positively selected gene inactivation results in changes in brain size

A new study, published in Molecular Biology and Evolution, has revealed that gene inactivation that naturally occurs in some individuals […]

Lab-grown brain organoids develop rudimentary eyes

A new study, published in Cell Stem Cell, has grown brain organoids in the lab that developed basic eye structures, […]

A comprehensive molecular atlas of mouse brain development

By integrating single-cell and spatial transcriptomics technologies, researchers have developed a high-resolution molecular atlas of foetal brain development in mice. […]

Blood stem cells are linked to the progression of aggressive brain tumours

Using transcriptome analysis and gene expression sequencing, researchers have discovered that blood stem cells (HSPCs) cause increased cell division in […]

ATP1A3: A gene found to be responsible for early brain malformations

Recently, researchers have explored the pathophysiology of ATP1A3, a gene that encodes for an ATPase pump sub-unit in the brain. […]

White matter microstructure in the brain is influenced by genetic variants

Recently, a genome-wide association study has identified genetic variants that influence white matter microstructure in the brain. White matter was […]

Targeting T cells against brain cancer

Researchers have reprogrammed regulatory T cells in the brain to fight against the most aggressive type of brain cancer – […]

Brain PWAS points to new depression treatments

Researchers have undertaken a brain proteome-wide association study (PWAS), identifying novel proteins that may be targets for new depression treatments. […]
