Looking at brain diseases

The accumulation of proteins related to neurodegenerative diseases occurs in humans and in many animal species including the worm. A new technique allows for the observation in worms of the accumulation of these proteins throughout its life. This technique will help us better understand the molecular mechanisms associated with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease and explore ways to control them.
