Brain Research: Inflammation in the brain is linked to risk of schizophrenia, ♦ New treatments for Parkinson's ♦ Laser-based imaging tool could increase accuracy, safety of brain tumor surgery

Laser-based imaging tool could increase accuracy, safety of brain tumor surgery Researchers are testing technology that gives brain surgeons real-time microscopic vision of tumors, potentially allowing the surgical decision-making process to become data driven, instead of subjective "best guesses,".
Scientists make advancements that may lead to new treatments for Parkinson's A research team has made breakthrough advancements on a new molecular mechanism that may provide a means to “melt” pathological clumps known as Lewy clumps. These clumps are a hallmark sign of Parkinson's disease.
Parkinson's disease protein controls movement of precious cargo inside cells, A new study marks a step toward understanding the Huntingtin protein (Htt) is responsible for Huntington's disease. The research shows that Htt controls the movement of precious cargo traveling up and down neurons, the cells that form the core of the nervous system in animals.
Inflammation in the brain is linked to risk of schizophrenia,  A new study is the first to find that immune cells are more active in the brains of people at risk of schizophrenia as well as those already diagnosed with the disease.
