Photo of article A repairable brain: cell reprogramming to halt neurodegenerative disease

EU-funded researchers have developed innovative genetic reprogramming techniques to replace and repair brain cells, opening up novel therapeutic pathways to combat debilitating disorders such as Parkinson's and Huntington's disease.

Photo of article New drugs could reduce risk of stroke happening again

A wide-reaching EU-funded project is testing new anti-blood clotting treatment in patients who have suffered a brain haemorrhage. Researchers hope to reduce the risk of the patient suffering from another stroke, which would impair their quality of life and life expectancy.

Photo of article Lab-grown neurons pave way for precision medicine

Using neurons grown from stem cells, EU-funded researchers are revealing more about mutations that lead to autism, schizophrenia and intellectual disability which researchers hope will lead to new drug targets for personalised medicine.

Photo of article Genes may hold key to slowing Alzheimer's disease

EU and industry funded researchers are shedding light on genes that influence the progression of Alzheimer's disease, paving the way for the development of novel drugs and therapeutic strategies that could delay or slow cognitive decline.

Photo of article Neural networks could reveal how the brain understands time

EU-funded researchers have developed a framework for understanding how we record memories by creating a model that simulates the behaviour of single neurons across different timescales. The research could help build on our understanding of how human memory works and lead to developments in the burgeoning field of artificial neural networks, as well as areas as far-reaching as genetics and ecology.

Photo of article More accurate testing for diagnosing dementia

Cognitive evaluation is a major pillar of detection and diagnosis of neurodegenerative conditions such as dementia. An EU-funded project has helped enhance the effectiveness of cognitive tests, benefiting patients, their families and society.

Published: 7 May 2019


Photo of article Collaboration in the clinical neurosciences

A number of cutting-edge neuroscience methods have tremendous potential to help patients suffering from disorders of the nervous system. An EU-funded project is working to facilitate collaborative research, with the aim of better understanding cognitive impairments and improving patient outcomes.

Photo of article Prosthetics with natural sensations for lower-limb amputees

An EU-funded project is building on the development of an upper-limb prosthesis controlled by the nervous system, which restores amputees' natural sensations and intuitive limb control. The aim is to create and market a similar solution for people who have lost lower limbs.

Photo of article New insight into how the brain develops

Humankind has always had a fascination with the brain - how it develops, how it works and how things can go wrong. By tracking a neuron's path through the brain, neuroscientists with the EU-funded MOMECODE project have given us new insight into how the brain develops.
