Ataxia is a common problem in Parkinson’s disease (PD), and many early onset Alzheimer’s disease patients (AD) also deal with it. Now there is a non-invasive test for mouse models.
Alzheimer's research
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a huge public health issue as it affects a large part of the aging population. Neuropathology is studied primarily in the end stages of the disease. What about prevention?
gait research CatWalk XT
Researchers use different ways to analyze gait in animals. In what instances would a study benefit from a system that is based on voluntary walking?
Parkinson's
Gait impairment is one of the most prominent symptoms of Parkinson's disease. For good research you need good models and good tests.
