Current treatments for stroke, for example, are limited by our lack of understanding of how neuronal injury develops within the brain and why neurons survive or die after a stroke. This is also why we still don't have a cure for most fatal and progressive neurodegenerative disorders.

Understanding how the brain processes new skills and actions can help to improve learning and aid research into neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders such as Parkinson's and Huntington's disease . An EU-funded project has collected new data on the development of neural mechanisms of action learning and habit formation and addiction through the manipulation of the brain’s molecular networks. This could lead to breakthroughs in thought-controlled prostheses.

Hossam Haick, a former Marie Curie Fellow and now ERC grantee, has developed an "electronic nose" to detect cancer by analysing patients ' breath. Knowing that dogs have the capacity to identify some cancer types, he decided to develop an electronic nose (this solution being more hygienic and hospital friendly)…

Scientists from the University of Southampton in the UK have identified the molecular system that could help develop treatments for Alzheimer's disease. This research, funded by a Marie Curie fellowship from the European Union and a pilot research grant from Alzheimer's Research UK, reveals the molecular system that contributes to the harmful inflammatory reaction in the brain during neurodegenerative diseases.
