    It has been well established that maternal inflammation during pregnancy alters neurological function in the offspring, but its impact on cortical development and long-term consequences on the cytoarchitecture is largely unstudied. Here we report that lipopolysaccharide-induced systemic maternal...

    Intrauterine and early neonatal life is a period of physiological plasticity, during which environmental influences may produce long-term effects. Both undernutrition and overnutrition during this period have been shown to change disease risk in adulthood. These effects are influenced by the...

    The article focuses on the implication of a neurological study conducted by Dr. Todd C. Sacktor which reveals the ability of a protein kinase Mzeta, a molecule which is rapidly synthesized in long-term potentiation and help maintain long-term potentiation, to reverse long-term potentation and...

    The carotid bodies are the main peripheral oxygen sensors involved in cardio-respiratory control under normoxic and hypoxic conditions. The present review briefly describes carotid body function during "normal" development and then presents recent results showing how environmental factors affect...

    Alphavirus vectors engineered for gene delivery and expression of heterologous proteins have been considered as valuable tools for research on neurological disorders. They possess a highly efficient susceptibility for neuronal cells and can provide extreme levels of heterologous gene expression....

    The formation and function of the mammalian cerebral cortex relies on the complex interplay of a variety of genetic and environmental factors through protracted periods of gestational and postnatal development. Biogenic amine systems are important neuromodulators, both in the adult nervous...

    Background: Transgenic mice expressing disease-associated proteins have become standard tools for studying human neurological disorders. Transgenes are often expressed using promoters chosen to drive continuous high-level expression throughout life rather than temporal and spatial fidelity to...
