Leuko-vascular interaction as a new player in neuromodulation: insights from experimental epilepsy
Paolo Fabene
Dipartimento di Scienze Neurologiche e del Movimento, Università di Verona

The conventional notion that neurons are exclusively responsible for brain signaling is increasingly challenged by the idea that brain function in fact depends on a complex interplay between neurons, glial cells, vascular endothelium, and immune-related blood cells.

Recent data demonstrates that neuronal activity is profoundly affected by an entire cellular and extracellular ‘orchestra’, the socalled neurovascular unit (NVU). Among the ‘musical instruments’ of this orchestra, there may be molecules long-known in biomedicine as important mediators of inflammatory and immune responses in the organism, as well as non-neuronal cell, e.g. leukocytes.

The seminar will be focussed on the structure and function of the NVU, both in the healthy brain and in pathological conditions, such as the abnormal NVU activation observed in epilepsy.

Agenda

16 febbraio 2019

Torino - 10th International Meeting STEROIDS and NERVOUS SYSTEM

Since 2001, this meeting represented an important event for basic and clinical researchers working on this emerging scientific topic. We will address state-of-the-art approaches in the field of steroids and nervous system, including behavior, epigenetics, genomic and non-genomic actions, the vitamin D, neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders, and the interference among endocrine disruptors and steroid signaling.

Ricerca

Atassia: scoperto il difetto cellulare responsabile di una rara malattia neurologica

Un malfunzionamento dei mitocondri, le centrali energetiche delle cellule, causa lo sviluppo della SCA28, una forma ereditaria di atassia. Dopo 10 anni di studi e grazie al sostegno di Fondazione Telethon, la scoperta del team di ricerca guidato dai proff. Alfredo Brusco e Filippo Tempia dell’Università di Torino e NICO. Lo studio pubblicato sulla prestigiosa rivista Neurobiology of Disease.
