Research in the brain sciences
During the annual Brain Awareness Week, international attention focuses on the brain to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.
Parkinson's disease research
Parkinson’s disease: the neurodegenerative disorder that affects mobility in a life-changing way. Learn more about relevant measures in pre-clinical studies.
Contrary to common methods, gait analysis can detect clinically relevant symptoms early on, researchers say.
Parkinson's research with zebrafish
About zebrafish and their important role in finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
study ataxia ErasmusLadder
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.
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 disease research
These studies specifically investigate the long-term effects of L-DOPA or levopoda, a common clinical treatment for Parkinson's disease, with which many patients struggle.
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.
Many labs use video tracking software to increase the efficiency of their research. In fact, EthoVision XT video tracking software has just reached an impressive milestone: 2000 sites worldwide.
Zebrafish
Zebrafish have proven to be a good model for Parkinson’s Disease (PD) research. They express several highly conserved genes that are associated with PD.
