New study uncovers how cellular stress causes brain damage
14-December-2010

Researchers at RIKEN have linked a specific type of cellular stress to neuronal cell death leading to brain damage. The findings overturn existing assumptions on the role of a key neuronal protein in cellular stress response, opening up new avenues for research on a range of neurodegenerative diseases.
