Groundbreaking research uses stem cells to relieve mouth, face pain

Research from Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine shows for the first time that a particular type of stem cell, bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSCs), can suppress orofacial pain rapidly--within ...

Neuroscience

Mapping a life's worth of changes in a mysterious brain structure

Until recently, scientists didn't know much about perivascular spaces (PVS), fluid-filled regions in the brain involved in clearing waste and toxins—mainly because it's tough to get a clear look at them using neuroimaging. ...

Neuroscience

Discovery of a novel way synapses can regulate neuronal circuits

The fundamental process of information transfer from neuron to neuron occurs through a relay of electrical and chemical signaling at the synapse, the junction between neurons. Electrical signals, called action potentials, ...

Studies shed light on mechanisms of corneal renewal and morbidity

Can stem cells be identified and monitored in mature tissue? How do our organs cope with both the need for frequent renewal of tissue cells and the need to protect stem cell health in tissue that is exposed to environmental ...
