Mapping memories

Intricate experiments using mice have allowed scientists to visualise the formation of new brain circuits that form after birth.

Number of nerve stem cells declines with age

A new study may explain why our brains produce fewer new neurons with age.
A new study may explain why our brains produce fewer new neurons with age. Mice were genetically modified so that their brain cells were tagged with fluorescent colours. This… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/number-of-nerve-stem-cells-declines-with-age/

Multiple sclerosis reversed in mice

The process of nerve cell degeneration in multiple sclerosis (MS) can be reversed, according to new research in mice.
The process of nerve cell degeneration in multiple sclerosis (MS) can be reversed, according to new research in mice. The finding could lead to new treatments for MS, if the… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/multiple-sclerosis-reversed-in-mice/

Glowing nerve cells

Scientists have developed a way to make nerves glow in mice.
Scientists have developed a way to make nerves glow in mice. The technique could help avoid accidental damage to nerves in surgery. Researchers injected fragments of… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/glowing-nerve-cells/

Changing nerve cells could treat spinal injury

Nerve cells made from a person's own skin suggest a novel way to treat spinal injury.
Nerve cells made from a person's own skin suggest a novel way to treat spinal injury. Spinal cord damage in rats and dogs has previously been treated using a specific type of… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/changing-nerve-cells-could-treat-spinal-injury/
