Researchers found clumps of non-functioning hnRNP H and at least three other RNA-binding proteins in the brain cells of people who had died with ALS, frontotemporal dementia or both. Bright red clumps of hnRNP H can be seen in the spinal cord motor neurons at left. Healthy neurons are shown at right. (Images: Aarti Sharma /Columbia University)
