Fly model of motor neuron degeneration provides new avenues for exploration in humans
Researchers have developed a new model to study motor neuron degeneration and have used this to identify three genes involved in the neurodegeneration process. These findings could have relevance for understanding the progression of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other forms of motor neuron disease. ALS is the most common form of adult-onset motor neuron disease.
