An Ion Channel Differentiates Newborn and Mature Neurons in the Adult Brain

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Newborn granule cells show high excitability that disappears as the cells mature. Now University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers have described key roles for G protein-mediated signaling and the late maturation of an ion channel during the differentiation of granule cells.

Scientists Uncover New Details in How Sense of Smell Develops

Washington University in St. Louis

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have uncovered new details in how the olfactory epithelium develops. The new knowledge could help scientists prove that turbinates and the resulting larger surface area of the olfactory epithelium are one definitive reason dogs smell so well.

Late effects of treatment hinder independence of adult survivors of childhood brain tumors

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

In the first study of its kind, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital investigators have found that more than half of pediatric central nervous system tumor survivors do not achieve complete independence as adults. Researchers looked at six aspects of independence in more than 300 survivors, including employment, independent living, marital status, assistance with routine or personal care needs, and the ability to drive.

Case Western Reserve Researcher and International Colleagues Identify Genetic Mutation Underlying Severe Childhood Brain Disorder

Case Western Reserve University

Ashleigh Schaffer, PhD, assistant professor of genetics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and a team of global genetics experts have discovered a genetic mutation and the faulty development process it triggers, causing a debilitating brain-based disorder in children. The findings, published in Nature Genetics, identify mutations in the alpha-N-catenin gene, (aka CTNNA2), which promotes cell adhesion and causes pachygyria, one of the most serious developmental brain defects in humans. Most patients are severely intellectually impaired, and are unable to walk or care for themselves. Children diagnosed with the rare disease have a life expectancy of about 10 years.

Drugs in Development for Cancer May Also Fight Brain Diseases, including ALS

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

A class of cancer drugs called PARP inhibitors could be useful for treating and preventing brain disorders, including ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and some forms of frontotemporal degeneration, by halting the misplacement of specific proteins that affect nerve cells.
