    Department of Neurology, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH 03756, United States
    Med Hypotheses 80:142-5. 2013
    ..We hypothesize that some cases of ALS may be related to chronic exposure to the aerosolization of cyanobacteria derived BMAA from cooling towers and might explain the observation of conjugal ALS couples...

    Neuroscience 146:1013-9. 2007
    ..Our results demonstrate that TNF-alpha induced mitochondrial redistribution toward the soma in MN. We postulate that inflammation may precede, and in fact cause, the mitochondrial changes observed in ALS tissue...
