Imaging Technique Finds Key Neurons in Brain Interact, May Support More Targeted Treatments
Two key types of brain nerves cells affected by Parkinson’s disease — cholinergic neurons and dopaminergic neurons — communicate and interact via signaling systems, researchers were able to “see” using a new imaging approach. This beneficial neuron-to-neuron interaction, confirmed through the novel approach in a rat model of the disease, also supported further work on targeted treatments for Parkinson’s, including ... read more
