    Abstract. The neocortex undergoes a complex transformation from mouse to whale. Whereas synapse density remains the same, neuron density decreases as a function of gray matter volume to the power of around -1/3, total convoluted surface area increases as a function of gray matter volume to the...

    Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is often accompanied by neurological disorders and neuropathological abnormalities. A loss of up to 30% of the neocortical neurons in brains from AIDS patients has been demonstrated in several studies. This neuron loss appeared to have no relationship...

    Morphological and electrophysiological studies were performed on neocortices of adult Connexin 32 (C×32)-deficient mice and wild-type mice to investigate the consequences of a lack of the gap junction subunit C×32 on neocortical structure and function. Morphometrical analysis revealed a...

    There is compelling evidence to support the idea that autophagy has a protective function in neurons and its disruption results in neurodegenerative disorders. Neuronal damage is well-documented in the brains of HIV-infected individuals, and evidence of inflammation, oxidative stress, damage to...
