33],[34] Among the neurotrophic factors, BDNF is a representative neurotrophic factor in the brain and binds its high-affinity receptor TrkB, which may act as a positive regulator of neurogenesis in the hippocampus.
Other studies in mice have shown that tandospirone improves brain neurogenesis, but this is the first time it has been shown that it can totally reverse the neurogenic deficits induced by alcohol.
Neurogenesis in the DG occurs throughout adult life and supports the hippocampus's crucial functions in storing and retrieving memories.
Cortright sat down with us to discuss neurogenesis as well as some of the methods that can be used to enhance this extremely beneficial process.
This type of adult neurogenesis is mainly restricted to the hippocampus and the olfactory bulb (45).
Researchers also found that the antibiotics may affect neurogenesis directly, and not act only via the gut bacteria.
In both cases, mice with low Ly6Chi levels showed the same memory and neurogenesis deficits as mice in the other experiment who had lost gut bacteria.
the authors examine the role of nitric oxide in neurogenesis in adult hippocampus following seizures.
In addition, the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in hippocampus was measured, as well as hippocampal neurogenesis was investigated by doublecortin (DCX) and 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine/neuronal nuclei (BrdU/NeuN).
Two of the most potent modalities for maintaining brain wellness and facilitating ongoing neurogenesis and synaptogenesis are exercise and nutrition--specifically, high-intensity interval training and a diet heavily, if not entirely, plant-based.
