    Background: Following voxel-based morphometry (VBM), brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) Val66Met polymorphism (rs6265) has been shown to affect human brain morphology in Caucasians. However, little is known about the specific role of the Met/Met genotype on brain structure. Moreover, the...

    It has been proposed that the loudness dependence of auditory evoked potentials (LDAEP) would be a reliable indicator of central serotonin system activity in humans. Serotonin levels and turnover are also increased by brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). The aim of the present study was to...

  • The effect of BDNF val66met polymorphism on visuomotor adaptation. Joundi, Raed; Lopez-Alonso, Virginia; Lago, Angel; Brittain, John-Stuart; Fernandez-del-Olmo, Miguel; Gomez-Garre, Pilar; Mir, Pablo; Jenkinson, Ned; Cheeran, Binith; Brown, Peter // Experimental Brain Research;Nov2012, Vol. 223 Issue 1, p43 

    Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) plays an important role in learning, memory, and brain plasticity. Humans with a val66met polymorphism in the BDNF gene have reduced levels of BDNF and alterations in motor learning and short-term cortical plasticity. In the current study, we sought to...

  • No Association of the BDNF Val66met Polymorphism with Implicit Associative Vocabulary and Motor Learning. Freundlieb, Nils; Philipp, Stephan; Schneider, Susanne A.; Brüggemann, Norbert; Klein, Christine; Gerloff, Christian; Hummel, Friedhelm C. // PLoS ONE;Nov2012, Vol. 7 Issue 11, Special section p1 

    Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) has been suggested to play a major role in plasticity, neurogenesis and learning in the adult brain. The BDNF gene contains a common val66met polymorphism associated with decreased activity-dependent excretion of BDNF and a potential influence on...

    Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) regulates several CNS physiological and pathological processes. To investigate in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, the relationship between the Val66Met polymorphism of BDNF and clinical markers of disease activity and MRI markers of focal and diffuse...

    Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) promotes survival and synaptic plasticity in the human brain. The Val66Met polymorphism of the BDNF gene interferes with intracellular trafficking, packaging, and regulated secretion of this neurotrophin. The human prefrontal cortex (PFC) shows lifelong...

    Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a nerve growth factor that has antidepressant-like effects in animals and may be implicated in the etiology of mood-related phenotypes. However, genetic association studies of the BDNF Val66Met polymorphism (single nucleotide polymorphism rs6265) in...

    The role of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the pathophysiology of major depressive disorder (MDD) remains to be elucidated. Recent post hoc analyses indicated a potential association of three polymorphisms in the BDNF gene with worse treatment outcome in patients with the...

    Background: Decreased expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is implicated in enhanced stress responses. The BDNF Val66Met polymorphism is associated with psychological changes; for example, carriers of the Met allele exhibit increased harm avoidance as well as a higher...
