A team of researchers based at institutions in the United States and Germany has described the path amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) appears to take as it progresses through different areas of the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord).

A roundup of research about how the FUS gene and FUS protein may contribute to the development of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
