Parkinson’s Disease-associated Gene Mutations Appear to Inhibit Key Neuronal Death Process

Genetic mutations associated with Parkinson’s disease appear to alter the processes of neuronal death, University College London (UCL) researchers suggest in a study titled “The Parkinson’s disease-linked proteins Fbxo7 and Parkin interact to mediate mitophagy,” published in Nature Neuroscience. Neurons are dependent on the integrity of mitochondria, the energy…

Parkinson’s Might Be Detected Early Using Visual Profiling

York University researchers have reported a new method of visual profiling that could help in the early detection of Parkinson’s disease. The study, titled “Classification of Parkinson’s Disease Genotypes in Drosophila Using Spatiotemporal Profiling of Vision,” was published in Scientific Reports. Parkinson’s is a disorder that affects motor…

Parkinson-Related Research IDs Neurons That Control Movement

A team of researchers localized the specific types of neurons involved in movement, work that might be of relevance to understand neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Huntington’s. The study, entitled “Cell-Type-Specific Sensorimotor Processing in Striatal Projection Neurons during Goal-Directed Behavior,” was published in Neuron. Neurodegeneration occurs when…
