The article published in AIMS Neuroscience explains how cortical microcircuitry is conducive to column formation. The column is the information bit proposed in the Dimensional Systems Model as the basis for learning and memory. Greenville, SC (PRWEB) June 11, 2014 Clinical neuropsychologist Robert A. Moss, Ph.D., FACPN, FAACP, and cognitive psychologist Jarrod Moss, Ph.D., are the authors of an article on cortical columns in the explanation of gamma-band synchrony and NMDA receptors in...

Brookhaven National Laboratory Structure of membrane protein that plays a role in signaling cell death could be new target for anticancer drugs Sometimes a cell has to die—when it's done with its job or inflicted with injury that could otherwise harm an organism. Conversely, cells that refuse to die when expected can lead to cancer. So scientists interested in fighting cancer have been keenly interested in learning the details of "programmed cell death." They want to understand what...

University of Bonn A team of researchers working with Prof. Dr. Christa E. Muller from the University of Bonn demonstrates a positive effect on tau deposits As part of a German-French research project, a team led by Dr. Christa E. Müller from the University of Bonn and Dr. David Blum from the University of Lille was able to demonstrate for the first time that caffeine has a positive effect on tau deposits in Alzheimer's disease. The two-years project was supported with 30,000 Euro from...

Findings may help develop targeted drug interventions and fight cancer and neurodegenerative diseases The molecular details of how zinc, an essential trace element of human metabolism, interacts with the enzyme caspase-3, which is central to apoptosis or cell death, have been elucidated in a new study led by researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University. The study is featured on the cover of the April issue of the journal Angewandte Chemie’s International Edition. Dysregulation of...

As a result, the neighbors become harder to kill Cells usually self-destruct when irreparable glitches occur in their DNA. Programmed cell death, or apoptosis, helps insure that cells with damaged DNA do not grow and replicate to produce more mutated cells. Apoptosis thereby helps protect and insure the survival of the organism. At the GSA Drosophila Research Conference, TinTin Su, Ph.D., will report that a dying Drosophila melanogaster larvae cell alerts neighboring cells that they are...

The problems people with autism have with memory formation, higher-level thinking and social interactions may be partially attributable to the activity of receptors inside brain cells, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have learned. Scientists were already aware that the type of receptor in question was a potential contributor to these problems – when located on the surfaces of brain cells. Until now, though, the role of the same type of receptor...
