Perinatal hypoxia–ischemia is a major cause of striatal injury and may lead to cerebral palsy. This study investigated whether delayed administration of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), at one week after neonatal rat hypoxia–ischemia, was neurorestorative of striatal ...
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of highly conserved zinc-dependent proteases involved in both development and pathogenesis. The present study examines the role of MMP-2 (gelatinase A) and MMP-9 (gelatinase B) in adult neurogenesis, using the corpus cerebelli, a subdivisio...
Dysfunction of noradrenergic locus coeruleus (LC) neurons is involved in psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases and is an early hallmark of Parkinson's disease (PD). The analysis of ion channels underlying the autonomous electrical activity of LC neurons, which is ultimately couple...
The globus pallidus plays a significant role in motor control under both health and pathological states. Recent studies have revealed that hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channels occupy a critical position in globus pallidus pacemaking activity. Morphological...
Astrocyte elevated gene-1 (AEG-1) has been reported to regulate the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt pathway and is also regulated by it. This study investigated how AEG-1 participates in the survival pathway of motor neurons in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). We found red...
Hippocampal synapses play a key role in memory and learning processes by inducing long-term potentiation and depression. Wnt signaling is essential in the development and maintenance of synapses via several mechanisms. We have previously found that Wnt5a induces the production of nitri...
Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is the most common neuropsychiatric complication of acute or chronic liver failure. Clinical symptoms include cognitive and intellectual dysfunction as well as impaired motor activity and coordination. There is general consensus that increased levels of ammo...
We previously demonstrated that atorvastatin induced immature dendritic cells (DCs) derived from spleen in vitro. Administration of these tolerogenic DCs led to amelioration of experimental autoimmune myasthenia gravis (EAMG). The protective effect was mainly mediated by inhibited cell...
Oxytocin modulates reward-related behaviors. The nucleus accumbens shell (NAcSh) is a major relay in the brain reward pathway and expresses oxytocin receptors, but the effects of oxytocin on the activity of NAcSh neurons in vivo are unknown. Hence, we used in vivo extracellular recordi...
Correct axonal growth during nervous system development is critical for synaptic transduction and nervous system function. Proper axon outgrowth relies on a suitable growing environment and the expression of a series of endogenous neuronal factors. However, the mechanisms of these neur...
