Glucocorticoid receptor directly regulates the transcriptional activity of peroxisome proliferator-activated alpha (PPARα) before birth in anticipation of the sudden shifts in the postnatal nutrient source and metabolic demands.
The cyclic neuropeptide somatostatin binds to human Aβ1-42 through an interface that critically relies on a specific tryptophan, thereby blocking the propensity of Aβ to aggregate, a critical step in the pathobiology of Alzheimer's disease.
Cerebellar Purkinje neurons use a multiplexed simple spike code combining synchrony/spike time and firing rate, with each component encoding distinct information about movements such as motion onset timing and kinematics.
The high affinity α-synuclein-monomer binder AS69 converts into a strong sub-stoichiometric inhibitor of nucleation processes upon formation of the AS69-α-synuclein complex, achieving reduced aggregation in vitro and in vivo.
Cognitively normal older adults show a positive relationship between neural activity during memory encoding and brain β-amyloid deposition rate over the subsequent 3-4 years, supporting preclinical data that associates neural activity with β-amyloid deposition.
The causal link between capillary amyloid‑β accumulation in the brain and cerebrovascular dysfunction, previously established in the Tg‑SwDI mouse model, is to be mitigated and remains to be fully uncovered.
