Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

It is unclear why motor neurons selectively degenerate in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Saxena etal. (2013) demonstrate that excitation of motor neurons can prevent their demise in a mouse model of inherited ALS by a mechanism involving the mTOR pathway.
