MBI researchers shed light on process of neurodegeneration

Over the last few years, there has been great interest in learning more about the proteins that accumulate in brains affected by various neurodegenerative disorders and the idea that these proteins can spread from one area of the brain to the other. Now, a team of University of Florida neuroscientists…

Biomarker breakthrough could improve Parkinson’s treatment

A new, non-invasive way to track the progression of Parkinson’s disease could help evaluate experimental treatments to slow or stop the disease’s progression. University of Florida researchers used functional magnetic resonance imaging to reveal areas where Parkinson’s disease and related conditions cause progressive decline in brain activity. The study, funded…
