Differences in how ALS affects eye, limb muscles act as clue

In an effort to better understand what happens during Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), researchers have compared the impact of ALS on the eye and limb muscles. They have focused on specific proteins that are important for muscle-nerve contacts. The eye muscles appear to be better equipped to maintain their muscle-nerve contacts and are thereby less affected.
