- Transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of microglia in maintenance of brain homeostasis and neurodegenerationby Shashank Kumar Maurya on January 26, 2023
The emerging role of microglia in brain homeostasis, neurodegeneration, and neurodevelopmental disorders has attracted considerable interest. In addition, recent developments in microglial functions and associated pathways have shed new light on their fundamental role in the immunological surveillance of the brain. Understanding the interconnections between microglia, neurons, and non-neuronal cells have opened up additional avenues for research in this evolving field. Furthermore, the study of...
- Home-based brain-computer interface attention training program for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: a feasibility trialby Choon Guan Lim on January 26, 2023
CONCLUSIONS: This trial demonstrated that the tablet version of our BCI-based attention training program can be safely delivered to children in the comfort of their own home. Trial registration This trial is registered at clinicaltrials.gov as NCT01344044.
- Parkinsonism in Genetic Neurodevelopmental Disorders: A Systematic Reviewby Emma N M M von Scheibler on January 26, 2023
CONCLUSION: Parkinsonism has been reported in many GNDs. Findings from this study may provide clues for further research and improve management of patients with GNDs and/or parkinsonism.
- Childhood-Onset Choreo-Dystonia Due to a Recurrent Novel Homozygous Nonsense HPCA Variant: Case Series and Literature Reviewby Francesca Magrinelli on January 26, 2023
CONCLUSIONS: Our case series expands the pheno-genotypic spectrum of HPCA-related disorder by describing childhood-onset choreo-dystonia as a new phenotype, reporting on a recurrent novel pathogenic nonsense variant in HPCA, and suggesting that exon 2 of HPCA might be a mutational hotspot.
