Excitation BolsTORs Motor Neurons in ALS Mice

MarkP Mattson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


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.
