4/10/14 - When you throw a wild pitch or sing a flat note, it could be that your basal ganglia made you do it. This area in the middle of the brain is involved in motor control and learning.
4/9/14 - The next generation of wearable computing is being trialled for the first time to evaluate its potential to support people with Parkinson's.
4/9/14 - A failing sense of smell can predict neurodegenerative disorders. Now, researchers investigate how the accuracy of different odor memories can be amplified in slow-wave sleep.

4/4/14 - In the journal Science, scientists now present a protein that facilitates the control of nerve cells by light. It might be used as a basis of studies of diseases of the nervous system.
4/3/14 - Researchers at Lancaster University have invented a new imaging tool inspired by the humble sewing machine which is providing fresh insight into the origins of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
4/3/14 - The very earliest signs of a debilitating neurodegenerative disorder, in which physical symptoms are not apparent until the fifth decade of life, are detectable in individuals as young as 30 years...
4/2/14 - A humble ingredient of bread - baker's yeast - has provided scientists with remarkable new insights into understanding basic processes likely involved in diseases such as Parkinson's and cancer.
3/31/14 - Genes are the "code" for building the biological elements that form an organism.
3/31/14 - Mitochondria, long known as "cellular power plants" for their generation of the key energy source adenosine triphosphate (ATP), are essential for proper cellular functions.
3/28/14 - A new chemical messenger that is critical in protecting the brain against Parkinson's disease has been identified by scientists at the Medical Research Council (MRC) Protein Phosphorylation and...
3/26/14 - Prions are infectious agents responsible for neurodegenerative diseases such as bovine spongiform encephalitis (commonly known as "mad cow disease") and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans.

3/23/14 - Kessler Foundation scientists collaborated with colleagues in Spain to study memory and learning in patients with Parkinson Disease (PD).
3/20/14 - A new approach to care is transforming the lives of patients with Parkinson's disease and has promise for other long term conditions like COPD and rheumatoid arthritis, say Dutch researchers in The...
3/14/14 - Alpha-synuclein is a principal component of Lewy bodies and Lewy neurites, which are pathologic hall-marks of Parkinson's disease.
3/13/14 - The course of Parkinson disease (PD) can vary from gradual deterioration to precipitous decline in motor or cognitive function.
