    Neuroplasticity is not only shaped by learning and memory but is also a mediator of responses to neuron attrition and injury (compensatory plasticity). As an ongoing process it reacts to neuronal cell activity and injury, death, and genesis, which encompasses the modulation of structural and functional processes of axons, dendrites, and by: Neuronal plasticity underlies learning and memory that dictate adaptive or compensatory changes in emotional, cognitive, or sensorimotor integration in response to internal or external stimuli. Consequently, an impairment in processes regulating neuronal plasticity and remodeling of synapses can lead to the symptomology characteristic of schizophrenia.

The suspected molecular villain in Alzheimer’s disease (AD)—the amyloid precursor protein (APP)—may also play a role in kidney function, new research finds. While the findings do not suggest that APP “causes” kidney disease, they reveal that this protein may play important, although poorly understood, roles in renal function.

Molecular Brain is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers manuscripts on all aspects of studies on the nervous system at the molecular, cellular, and systems level providing a forum for scientists to communicate their findings.

Molecular brain research is a rapidly expanding research field in which integrative approaches at the genetic, molecular, cellular and synaptic levels. A second major mechanism by which DR might promote neural cell plasticity and survival is hormesis. Like vigorous exercise or cognitive stimulation, DR seems to impose a mild beneficial stress on neurons that “conditions” them such that they are more resistant to aging and dise 36, Cited by: Select Chapter 2 - When Cognitive Decline Becomes Pathology: From Normal Aging to Alzheimer’s Disease.

Moreover, DR can stimulate the production of new neurons from stem cells (neurogenesis) and can enhance synaptic plasticity, which may increase the ability of the brain to resist aging and restore function following by: Handbook of the Biology of Aging, Eighth Edition, provides readers with an update on the rapid progress in the research of aging.

Abstract: Hyperinsulinemia as well as type II diabetes mellitus are among the risk factors for Alzheimers disease (AD). However, the molecular and cellular basis that link insulin resistance disorders and diabetes with AD are far from clear.Similarly, oxidative stress as occurs during normal aging or in neurodegenerative disorders, impairs the function of glucose and glutamate transporters, as well as ion-motive ATPases.
