Abstract

Although the neurotoxicity of amyloid β (Aβ) protein in Alzheimer's disease (AD) has been reported widely, the exact molecular mechanism underlying the Aβ-induced synaptic dysfunction and memory impairment remains largely unclear. Growing evidence indicates that wingless-type (Wnt) sign...read more

Alzheimer's Disease: Early Markers

Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. This feed focuses on early markers, as well as environmental, pharmacological, and drug-response biomarkers associated with this disease.

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.

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.

Neuromodulation

Neuromodulation refers to a physiological process in which a neuron uses chemical(s) to regulate a variety of neuronal populations. Discover the latest research on neuromodulation here.

Synaptic Junctions

Synaptic or neuronal junctions are the site of transmission of electrical nerve impulses between neurons or between neurons and effector cells. Discover the latest research on synaptic junctions here.

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.

Neuronal Guidance: Evolution

This feed focuses on mechanisms that underlie the evolution of axonal guidance pathways, neurogenesis, and synaptic connectivity. Here is the latest research.

Learning and Memory

Here is the latest research on neural and genetic circuits and mechanisms implicated in memory and learning, including discriminatory learning, conditioning, and psychophysiological habituation.

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.

Neural Proteomics

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

Alzheimer's Disease: APP

Amyloid precursor protein proteolysis is critical for the development of Alzheimer's disease, a neurodegenerative disease associated with accumulation of amyloid plaques. Here is the latest research.

Memory: Long-Term

Memory refers to the encoding, storage, and retrieval of information. Here is the latest research on aspects that underlie long-term memory formation and loss.

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.

Wnt Signaling

Wnt signal transduction pathway is regulated by several molecules and is critical for embryonic development, cell proliferation, differentiation, and tissue patterning. Here is the latest research on Wnt signaling.
