Midlothian boost to tackle brain disease

A MIDLOTHIAN research centre has made a breakthrough in helping develop treatments for brain disorders.

Scientists at The Roslin Institute in Easter Bush have discovered for the first time why brain cells stop communicating properly in people who have degenerative neurological conditions.

They believe that the findings could help develop treatments that slow the progress of a broad range of brain disorders such as Huntingdon’s, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.
