Researchers pinpoint neurochemical marker linked with loss of motor function in ALS

University of Alberta researchers have identified a neurochemical marker related to the loss of motor function and communication breakdown between the primary motor cortex—the part of the brain that controls our muscles—and the rest of the brain in ALS patients. Knowing this, they’re now aiming to find out whether the marker might also offer a test to evaluate new treatments to improve brain function.
