Abstract

First seen as a fat-storage tissue, the adipose tissue is considered as a critical player in the endocrine system. Precisely, adipose tissue can produce an array of bioactive factors, including cytokines, lipids, and extracellular vesicles, which target various systemic organ systems to...read more

Neuronal Plasticity

Neuronal plasticity is the brain’s ability to change its structure and function in response to internal or external factors. Here is the latest research on mechanisms that influence this process.

Leptin in the Brain

We discuss modulators of leptin and the leptin receptor as they relate to normal cognitive functioning and may mediate some of the actions of leptin in the brain. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to leptin in the brain.

Inflammation & Obesity

Obesity is the accumulation of abnormal or excessive fat that may interfere with the maintenance of an optimal state of health. The excess of macronutrients in the adipose tissues stimulates them to release inflammatory mediators such as tumor necrosis factor α and interleukin 6, and reduces production of adiponectin, predisposing to a pro-inflammatory state. Discover the latest research on inflammation and obesity here.

Blood Brain Barrier

The blood brain barrier is a border that separates blood from cerebrospinal fluid. Discover the latest search on this highly selective semipermeable membrane here.

Innate Immunity: Neurodegeneration

The innate immune system is a first line of defense against infection. Pathological states can occur if there is over activation of the innate immune system, particularly in the. The excessive activation of these cells can lead to inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases. Here is the latest research on innate immunity and neurodegeneration.

Gut Microbiome & the Brain

Microbes in the gut communicate with the central nervous system (CNS) via at least three parallel and interacting channels including endocrine, nervous, and immune signaling. Here is the latest research on the brain-gut-microbiome axis.

Neurodegeneration: Progranulin & Lipids

Progranulin is a secreted growth factor involved in inflammation, wound healing, cancer, and for its neurotrophic properties. Along with lipids (fats), these molcules are associated with neurodegenerative processes. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to these molecules and neurodegeneration.

Molecular Organization of Synapses

This feed focuses on the molecular organization of synapses between two nerve cells, synaptic signal transduction, and synaptic vesicles. Here is the latest research on organization of synapses.

Functional Connectivity Networks

Functional connectivity networks represent specific patterns of synchronous activity and differ between healthy subjects, stages of consciousness and across disease. Discover the latest research on functional connectivity networks here.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders-including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and eating disorders that are not otherwise specified, which include binge eating disorder-are challenging health issues. Here is the latest research on eating disorders.

Blood Brain Barrier Chips

The blood brain barrier (BBB) is comprised of endothelial cells that regulate the influx and outflux of plasma concentrations. Lab-on-a-chip devices allow scientists to model diseases and mechanisms such as the passage of therapeutic antibodies across the BBB. Discover the latest research on BBB chips here.

Blood Brain Barrier & Cytokines

Cytokines can affect the central nervous system through crossing the blood brain barrier and entering the CSF and interstitial fluid spaces. Some cytokines are able to cross through transport systems and can affect tissues within the CNS, whereas others are unable to cross. Here is the latest research on the blood brain barrier and cytokines.
