Ataxia mouse model: Eye blink conditioning for early diagnosis of human disease SCA6

Scientists at the Ruhr-Universit├Ąt Bochum established a mouse model for the human disease SCA6. SCA6 is characterised by movement deficits and caused by similar genetic alterations as Chorea Huntington. The mouse model will be used to investigate the disease mechanisms. Experiments suggest that an impairment of eye blink conditioning could be an early disease symptom. […]
