Neurology & Neurologic Surgery
The Department has been a center of excellence for over four decades and brings together a diverse group of highly trained and respected clinicians and scientists, including over 90 faculty members. The team investigates a wide range of topics in basic, clinical, and translational research and benefits from collaboration with leading experts in medical imaging, computer science, genomics, proteomics, stem cells, and bioengineering.
Neurology & Neurologic Surgery News
Protein clumps affect neural stem cells
Young, resting neural stem cells have large protein clumps often associated with neurodegeneration. As stem cells age, the aggregates inhibit their ability to make new neurons, Stanford researchers say.
CRISPR helps reveal drug targets for ALS
Through genome editing, scientists at Stanford have pinpointed genes that reveal mechanistic details of ALS and may even protect against the degeneration of neurons.
Seizure-regulating nerve cells identified
Stanford researchers have found that a small set of nerve cells in the brain regulates the debilitating seizures and cognitive deficits characteristic of the most common form of epilepsy in adults. This discovery could lead to new and better treatments.
