Acute administration of ginger (Zingiber officinale rhizomes) extract on timed intravenous pentylenetetrazol infusion seizure model in mice

Epilepsy Research

Feb 18, 2014

Abdolkarim Hosseini, Naser Mirazi

Abstract

Zingiber officinale (Zingiberaceae) or ginger, which is used in traditional medicine has antioxidant activity and neuroprotective effects. The effects of this plant on clonic seizure have not yet been studied. The present study evaluated the anticonvulsant effect of ginger in a model of...read more

Neurotoxicity, Inflammation & Neuroprotection

The end result of the inflammatory process, neurotoxicity and/or neuroprotection, is a function of the fine balance between the two cellular systems, i.e., of the complex signaling relationships between anti-inflammatory neuroprotective factors (neurotrophins and other chemical mediators) and proinflammatory neurotoxic factors (tnf, free radicals, certain cytokines, etc). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotoxicity, inflammation and neuroprotection.

Vascular Headaches

Vascular headache is an outdated term to describe certain types of headache which were thought to be related to blood vessel swelling and hyperemia as cause of pain. Headaches formerly classified as vascular headaches are now identified as migraines, cluster headaches, and illness-related headaches. Discover the latest research on vascular headaches here.

sGC Modulators

Soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) stimulators and activators have been developed to treat patients with pulmonary hypertension and heart failure, respectively. Recently these sGC modulators have been explored for the treatment of fibrosis. Discover the latest research on sGC modulators here.

Organellar TRP channels

Orangellar TRP channels are transient receptor potential (TRP) channels mediate Ca2+ flux and voltage changes across membranes in response to environmental and cellular signals. Discover the latest research on organellar TRP channels here.

Selective Ion Transport in Channels & Pumps

Ion channels and pumps are central to a number of cell functions, including membrane excitability and synaptic transmission. With sophisticated imaging, these channels and pumps have been characterized as selective for the ions, sodium, potassium chloride and calcium. Here is the latest research on selection ion transport in channels and pumps.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by unprovoked and recurrent seizures. Discover the latest research on factors and mechanisms that underlie epilepsy here.

Acute viral rhinopharyngitis

Acute viral rhinopharyngitis, also known as "common cold", is an acute, self-limiting viral infection of the upper respiratory tract involving the nose, sinuses, pharynx and larynx. Discover the latest research on acute viral rhinopharyngitis here.

Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy

Progressive myoclonic epilepsy (PME) is a heterogeneous group of epilepsies characterized by myoclonus seizures and progressive neurological symptoms. Discover the latest research on PME here.

Reflex Epilepy

Reflex epilepsy is a type of epilepsy caused by a certain stimulus. The most common reflex epilepsy is photosensitive epilepsy, brought on by flashing lights. Discover the latest research on reflex epilepsy here.

Neural Proteomics

This feed focuses on the use of proteomic and proteogenomic approaches in neurobiology and neurobiological disorders. Here is the latest research.

Phosphorylation

Phosphorylation is the attachment of a phosphoryl group, which is often provided by ATP, to a protein by a specific type of enzyme called kinase. Discover the latest research on phosphorylation here.

Basal Forebrain- Circuits

Basal forebrain is a region in the brain important for production of acetylcholine and is the major cholinergic output of the CNS. Discover the latest research on circuits in the basal forebrain here.

Neuronal Identity

Neuronal identity is important for defining the end result of stem cell differentiation through neuronal developmentor for regenerative medicine. This could involved transcription factors used to drive induce pluripotent stem cells towards the neuronal lineage. Discover the latest research on Neuronal Identity here.

Phosphoproteomics

Phosphoproteomics refers to the identification and quantification of phosphorylated proteins in the proteome. This approach provides a high-throughput method of examining the state of intracellular phosphorylation. Here is the latest research on phosphoproteomics.

Ion Channels

Ion channels are pore-forming proteins that allow the passage of ions from one side of the membrane to the other and are at the heart of many biological processes including nerve activity and muscle contraction. Discover the latest research on ion channels here.

Serotonin

Serotonin is a multifaceted neurotransmitter with various functions, including reward and learning. Discover the latest research, including the latest computational studies, of serotonin here.

Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are released from synaptic vesicles in presynaptic neurons in response to neural activity, diffuse across the synaptic cleft, and bind specific receptors in order to bring about changes in postsynaptic neurons. Here is the latest research.

Angelman Syndrome

Angelman syndrome is a neurogenetic imprinting disorder caused by loss of the maternally inherited UBE3A gene and is characterized by generalized epilepsy, limited expressive speech, sleep dysfunction, and movement disorders. Here is the latest research.

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.
