new-treatment-spinal-cord-injury

Extracellular vesicles from umbilical cords improve traumatic spinal cord injury

Spinal cord injury is crippling and hard to treat. Secondary injury caused by inflammation and scarring significantly impact motor function and locomotion. Extracellular vesicles can improve recovery.

How to analyze different characteristics of olfaction in rodents

Correct analysis of olfaction is crucial for an accurate interpretation of mouse social behavior. Today's guest article describes how to analyze different characteristics with the olfactory habituation/dishabituation test.

Suture anchors for rotator cuff injuries: a new animal model

Almost half of the people over the age of 60 have a rotator cuff tear in the shoulder. Research is aimed at improving surgical techniques, but techniques used in animal models differ from those applied on humans.

The Hypothalamus is involved in locomotion? Complex dopamine circuitry uncovered

By measuring locomotion and investigating dopaminergic neurons, complex dopamine circuitry is uncovered. How are amphetamine and our biological clock involved in this?

Does well plate size matter? A methodological study in zebrafish

The DanioVision observation chamber is a versatile research tool to study Zebrafish embryos and larvae by using well plates. Does the size of the wells in these plates affect study outcomes?
ViS4M

New method for early detection of Alzheimer's disease

The color x-maze can be used to pick up symptoms of Alzheimer's disease in AD-mice months before traditional cognitive tests.
