Parkinson's disease can migrate from gut to brain, shows research

Parkinson's disease is strongly linked to the degeneration of the brain's movement center. In the last decade, the question of where the disease begins has led researchers to a different part of the human anatomy. [More]
Doctor offers four important benefits of laser back surgery

Doctor offers four important benefits of laser back surgery

The spinal column is one of the most delicate and essential areas of the human body. Signals carried to and from the brain through the column control many key functions of our motor skills and nervous system. [More]

Preconditioning crush increases survival rate of motor neurons after spinal root avulsion

Preconditioning crush increases survival rate of motor neurons after spinal root avulsion

A previous study showed that, 1 week after avulsion of the spinal nerve root, small motor neurons (< 500 μm2) negative for 27 kDa heat shock protein (HSP27) immunoreactivity died and only large (> 500 μm2) HSP27-positive motor neurons survived in the spinal cord ventral horn. [More]

Study: Ginsenoside Rb1 attenuates neuronal damage following cerebral ischemia

Study: Ginsenoside Rb1 attenuates neuronal damage following cerebral ischemia

Activated microglia-mediated inflammation promotes neuronal damage under cerebral hypoxic-ischemic conditions, so it is likely that inhibiting hypoxia-induced activation of microglia will alleviate neuronal damage. [More]
