Since the discovery of the gene for Huntington’s disease in 1993, the development of experimental new drug ISIS-HTTRx, has been one of the most important breakthroughs. For the first time, in London, the patients of Huntington’s disease are being dosed with this experimental drug. The first human trial of this revolutionary new gene-silencing treatment is being carried out at UCL’s new Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre, a custom-built centre designed to accelerate innovative treatments for neurodegenerative diseases, which is located at UCLH's National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, UK..

Researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital - The Neuro at McGill University, have compiled a new detailed map of the hippocampal region of the brain. This new submillimetric data set has been designed to help the scientific community to develop better treatments for patients suffering from epilepsy and other psychiatric and neurological disorders. Research has been set out to build and share a detailed model of the substructures, the hippocampus, the keycentre of the brain involved in epilepsy. The goal of this project is to improve the tools available for clinicians and researchers of the neurological field around the globe and accelerate research.
