"Until now, there were two main techniques for treating the most common type of stroke – the ischemic kind, in which a clot blocks one or several major blood vessels of the brain and prevents blood from reaching the vital tissue, causing the nerve cells to die. The widely used therapies for acute stroke open blocked arteries by dissolving or removing a clot, but they have to be performed quickly and are not effective on all patients.
Now, neurologists at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and at 73 medical centers around the world, including Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center, have shown that stimulation of the nerves can provide a new treatment option for ischemic stroke."
"Could electrical stimulation of nerves that sit behind your nose help limit the harm done to your brain by a stroke?
New research suggests it's possible. In early experiments, blood flow to the brain was increased by widening undamaged arteries and bypassing the clot. This delivered oxygen-rich blood to threatened areas of the brain.
How could that reduce disability after a stroke?"

"The first analysis of single cells from the brains of autistic people homes in on a group of neurons as central to autism.
These neurons are involved in communication between brain regions that mediate higher-order cognitive abilities, such as social and language skills.
The study also reveals a potentially important role for microglia, the brain’s immune cells."
"As a writer/director for Netflix and the Disney Channel, and former college athlete, Erika Kaestle has many interests and loves many things. But running was never one of them.
“The one thing anyone will tell you about me is I hated to run,” she said.
But five years ago, everything changed.
“I was diagnosed with a seven centimeter tumor in my left frontal lobe, “ she said."
