Leg exercises are crucial to maintain healthy brain and nervous system

In a new take on the exercise truism ‘use it, or lose it,’ researchers show neurological health is an interactive relationship with our muscles and our world. Groundbreaking research shows that neurological health depends as much on signals sent by the body's large, leg muscles to the brain as it does on directives from the brain to the muscles

Leg exercises are crucial to maintain healthy brain and nervous systemPublished today in Frontiers in Neuroscience, the study fundamentally alters brain and nervous system medicine – giving doctors new clues as to why patients with motor neuron disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal muscular atrophy and other neurological diseases often rapidly decline when their movement becomes limited. “Our study supports the notion that people who are unable […]

Scientist use skin cells to repair nerve damage caused by multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a progressive neurological disease that is estimated to affect more than 2.3 million people across the globe. The researchers are optimistic about their early findings with skin stem cells, particularly because the treatment would be personalised to each patient, which could reduce the risk of side effects

Scientist use skin cells to repair nerve damage caused by multiple sclerosisThe study was led by scientists at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, as part of the experiment the scientists took skin cells from adult mice with multiple sclerosis (MS) and then reprogramed them into neural stem cells (NSCs). These ‘induced neural stem cells, (iNSCs) were transplanted into the rodents’ cerebrospinal fluid. There, […]

‘Cognitive devices and other new technologies are very progressive’

At WCNR 2018, Professor Jurg Kesselring, Member of committee of Red Cross  said, The important thing to know about neurorehabilitation is that you can attain neuroplasticity of brain only if you are active, whether it is physically activity or psychologically 

‘Cognitive devices and other new technologies are very progressive’Professor Jurg Kesselring, Member of committee of Red Cross said, when we talk about neurorehabilitation, we are focusing on neuroplasticity of the brain. “We need to understand that neuroplasticity keeps happening in the brain, until death,” said Kesselring. He added, “These changes of the brain can be improved by acute therapy and that is what […]

India: ‘NeuroRehabilitation is still in nascent stage’

With all eyes set for the global meeting of the World Federation of NeuroRehabilitation in Powai, Mumbai, Dr Abhishek Srivastava, Joint Organising Secretary of the 10th World Congress organised by World Federation for NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR) says, the whole concept of this four daylong conference is to discuss how can we rehabilitate people with brain injuries, stroke, Parkinson disease, about the recent advances and how can we bring medical community and rehab community together and bridge the gap

India: ‘NeuroRehabilitation is still in nascent stage’World Federation for NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR) is all set to host its 10th World Congress in India from 7th-10th February. This is the first time that the conference is being held in South East Asia and it is a big step for neurological rehab experts. Dr Srivastava said the theme of the conference is called “Neuro Technology […]
