Super-resolution microscopy tech was used to track the tipping point in Parkinson's disease; the change in chemistry in the brain that triggers the disease. And the researchers at the University of Cambridge concluded that the same protein evidently can either protect or spur the toxic effects in the brain that kills brain cells, depending on the form it takes. Release

> Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine developed a mouse model for a disease that exhibits autism-like social behaviors and "used it to unravel the molecular mechanism that connects the genetic defects inherited in Jacobsen syndrome to effects on brain function." Release

> Researchers from Montreal and Boston say they have identified a new mechanism for AMD in a study just published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature Medicine. Release
