Stroke, MS Patients Walk Significantly Better with Neural Stimulation

A research volunteer with multiple sclerosis and another who had suffered stroke walked significantly better and faster with the aid of neural stimulation systems, potentially laying the foundation for implanted systems that restore some independence to people in these populations.

UAMS Researcher Presents Findings on Synthetic ‘Marijuana’ at National Meeting

Some people who use so-called synthetic marijuana, known by names such as K2 and Spice, may be unable to metabolize the drug, leading them to experience its most harmful effects, a UAMS researcher said today at a national scientific meeting in Chicago.

Antidepressant May Enhance Drug Delivery to the Brain

Amitriptylineimprovesdrugdeliveryacrosstheblood-brainbarrier.jpg

New research from the National Institutes of Health found that pairing the antidepressant amitriptyline with drugs designed to treat central nervous system diseases, enhances drug delivery to the brain by inhibiting the blood-brain barrier in rats. The blood-brain barrier serves as a natural, protective boundary, preventing most drugs from entering the brain. The research, performed in rats, appeared online April 27 in the Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism.
