Hey everyone. I found this really interesting article today on Technology Review about a discovery made in animals with Parkinson's Disease. They have discovered a way to protect neurons from degenerating and dying. This could have major implications for developing drugs for humans with Parkinson's. Check out the full article here:

That is very interesting DigEagle.
Might hold more then just a Parkinson's treatment.

Perhaps even develope a super-neuron..with the ability to stave off many MND's.
