UAB neurobiology professor Vladimir Parpura becomes the second UAB faculty with membership in the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives.
UAB and Auburn will team up for a study of magnetic resonance imaging techniques that could enhance epilepsy surgery.

The unique academic experiences available to students in the UAB Honors College are expanding with the selection of the college’s 2016-2017 Honors Faculty Fellows. 

Altered excitability is seen in brain neurons in epilepsy, depression, drug addiction and other disorders, and this discovery may offer a potential therapeutic target.

Researchers have proposed a model that resolves a seeming paradox in one of the most intriguing areas of the brain, exploring how immature granule cells in the dentate gyrus appear able to enhance pattern separation due to lesser synaptic connectivity than mature cells.

UAB researchers find that epigenetic changes associated with chronic obesity alter expression of memory-related genes in the brain.
The Alzheimer’s plaques that accumulate around brain cells also congregate along the walls of blood vessels, according to UAB research, and that may contribute to cognitive issues.
A UAB researcher focusing on the epigenetics of drug abuse wins a significant funding award from the National Institutes of Health.
A UAB study sheds new light on the epigenetics of memory formation and memory loss in patients with epilepsy, and the discovery may have implications for many other memory disorders.
UAB researchers find a chemical pathway — a glutamate transporter — that may be causing seizures and shorten survival rates for patients with brain tumors.
A new comprehensive textbook on neurological diseases and conditions from the desk of a UAB neuroscientist will be available this spring.

A UAB neuroscience student has received a summer fellowship from the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation.

A federally funded study at UAB shows how invading glioma cells disrupt brain connections and break down the blood brain barrier.
