New Imaging Technique Provide Better View Of Nerve Damage

A new imaging technique was recently developed that would allow doctors and researchers to view the extent of nerve damage more clearly in a live patient. This will also help researchers to assess and evaluate the level of damage as well as healing of the nerve tissues more accurately. This new imaging method is further

Study Suggests Starving Immune Cells Slows Down MS Damage

Study Suggests Starving Immune Cells Slows Down MS Damage

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that is brought about by damage done to the myelin sheath, the protective layer that surrounds nerve cells. It leads to the nerve cells experiencing impaired ability to send signals from the brain to the other parts of the body and vice versa, resulting in physical and neurological disabilities.

Scientists Develop New X-Ray Method For Mapping Myelin Sheaths

Scientists Develop New X-Ray Method For Mapping Myelin Sheaths

Researchers from the University of Copenhagen, including members from the Niels Bohr Institute have recently developed a new X-ray method that allows for more highly detailed images of brain cells. The new X-ray method is able to map out the myelin sheaths in nerve cells, helping scientists get a better understanding of condition such as
