Abstract

The safe use of grasspea (Lathyrus sativus) and allied species (L. cicera, L. clymenum and L. ochrus) requires a better understanding of the factors that are involved in the development of neurolathyrism. A suitable animal model is needed. The nutritional quality, seed chemical composit...read more

Cerebrovascular Disease

Cerebrovascular disease is an important cause of cognitive impairment and dementia in elderly patients. Discover the latest research on cerebrovascular disease here.

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.

NMDA Receptor Signaling

The NDMA receptor is an ionotropic receptor that is activated when glutamate or glycine binds to it, initiating several downstream signaling cascades. NDMA receptor signaling is thought to be implicated in different pathologies, including depression. Here is the latest research on NDMA receptor signaling.

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.

Lichtheim's disease or subacute combined degeneration of spinal cord is a degenerative disease associated with deficiencies in vitamin B12, vitamin E, and copper. Here is a latest research.

Membrane Transport in Heart Failure

This feed focuses on Membrane Transport proteins and their dysfunction which can lead to heart disease. Discover the latest research on Membrane Transport in Heart Failure.

Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

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.

Lipid Metabolism

Lipid metabolism is important in several cellular processes and functions including signal transduction. Disorders of lipid metabolism can occur impairing normal function. Here is the latest research on lipid metabolism and lipid disorders.

Neuroimaging

Neuroimaging is a useful tool for studying brain function as well as for diagnosis of diseases and injuries to the brain. Follow this feed to stay up to date.

Gut & Phospholipid Metabolism

Phospholipids are the major component of cell membranes. This feed focuses on the role of gut microorganisms in phospholipid metabolism.

Lipids & Membrane Homeostasis

The cellular membrane is composed of diverse lipid molecules that help maintain membrane integrity and homeostasis. Discover the latest research on Lipids & Membrane Homeostasis

Hypothalamic Vasculature

The interrelationship of hypothalamic neurons and pituitary cells with the vasculature is important role for regulating the pattern of neurohormone exposure. Discover new insights into hypothalamic vasculature with this feed.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Brain

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the area of interest. MRI of the brain is commonly performed to visualize the brain and related structures in detail. Discover the latest research of MRI and the brain here.

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Mitochondrial Metabolism

Mitochondrial metabolism links energy production to other essential cellular processes such as signaling, cellular differentiation, and apoptosis. Discover the latest research here.

Spinal Cord Neoplasms

Spinal cord neoplasms affect the spinal cord and arise from either within the spinal cord or from extramedullary structures that surround the spinal cord. The cancer can arise from different cell types such as the meninges surrounding the spinal cord, glial or nerve cells within the CNS. Here is the latest research on spinal cord neoplasms.

Lipid & Membrane Metabolism

Lipid metabolism refers to the synthesis and degradation of lipids in cells and is a complex process essential for fat storage and construction of cellular membranes. Discover the latest research on lipid and membrane metabolism here.

Insulin, Astrocytes & Depressive Behaviour

Insulin regulates astrocyte gliotransmission and dopaminergic neurotranmission. As a result, insulin resistence has been associated with behavioural and mood symptoms such as depression. Here is the latest research on Insulin, Astrocytes & Depressive Behaviour.

Dopamine & Behavior

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and a hormone commonly associated with the brain's pleasure and reward system. Here is the latest research on its role in affecting and guiding human behaviour.

Cerebellar Neoplasms

Tumors within the cerebellum of the brain can be malignant or benign. This is often a secondary site for metastasis from other cancers, including lung and breast cancer. Symptoms of cerebellar tumors include ataxia and intracranial hypertension. Here is the latest research on cerebellar neoplasms.

Oxygenation & Hydroxylation

Oxygenation is a chemical production that introduces oxygen atom into an organic compound. Hydroxylation is a chemical process that introduces a hydroxyl group (-OH) into an organic compound. In biochemistry, hydroxylation reactions are often facilitated by enzymes called hydroxylases. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes are expressed mainly in the liver and are active in mono-oxygenation and hydroxylation of various xenobiotics, including drugs and alcohols, as well as that of endogenous compounds such as steroids, bile acids, prostaglandins, leukotrienes and biogenic amines. Here is the latest research.

Astrocytes

Astrocytes are glial cells that support the blood-brain barrier, facilitate neurotransmission, provide nutrients to neurons, and help repair damaged nervous tissues. Here is the latest research.

Neuronal Cell Types

There are diverse ranges of neurons, which are defined by their structural, functional, connectional and molecular properties. For example, some type of neurons includes sensory, sympathetic, and motor neurons. Discover the latest research on neuronal cell types here.

Muscle Mitochondrial Networks

This feed focuses on the role of mitochondrial networks and energy metabolism in muscle cells. Discover the latest research here.

Drug-Induced Diseases

Drug-induced diseases (DID) also called as iatrogenic diseases. Most of these DIDs are largely preventable, if strict vigilance and proper periodic clinical and diagnostic monitoring are undertaken

Phenylketonuria

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an inborn error of metabolism that results from a deficiency of phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH). Discover the latest research on phenylketonuria here.

Glial cells play an essential role in maintaining brain homeostasis, forming myelin, and providing support and protection for neurons. Follow new research into glia cell differentiation with this feed.

Astrocytes and Neurodegeneration

Astrocytes are important for the health and function of the central nervous system. When these cells stop functioning properly, either through gain of function or loss of homeostatic controls, neurodegenerative diseases can occur. Here is the latest research on astrocytes and neurodegeneration.

Insulin, Astrocytes & Depressive Behavior

Insulin regulates astrocyte gliotransmission and dopaminergic neurotranmission. As a result, insulin resistence has been associated with behavioral and mood symptoms such as depression. Here is the latest research on insulin, astrocytes & depressive behavior.
