Scientists have discovered a “big bang” of Alzheimer’s disease — the precise point at which a healthy protein becomes toxic but has not yet formed deadly tangles in the brain.
Researchers have discovered that men and women have different genetic risk factors for developing glioma.
Tiny snippets of genetic material called microRNA may offer a way to detect conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease earlier, according to a new study.
New research suggests that the level of testosterone in an adult man is largely determined by the stress they encounter during their childhood, challenging the idea that testosterone production is controlled by genetics.
Scientists seeking to unlock secrets of cellular ageing have identified a gene that triggers senescence, a phenomenon in which cells stop dividing.
Psychiatric disorders share many genetic variants, while neurological disorders appear more distinct, according to a new study from the Brainstorm Consortium.
Wrinkles aren’t just a sign of ageing on our appearance, but also occurs deep inside on a cellular level. These wrinkles appear to prevent our genes from functioning properly, researchers have found.
Researchers have synthesized the first artificial human prion, a dramatic development in efforts to combat a devastating form of brain disease that has so far eluded treatment and a cure.
