How neurons adapt to sense glial response: the role of Interelukin-1 receptor type I

Barbara Viviani
Dipartimento di Scienze Farmacologiche e Biomolecolari, Università degli Studi di Milano


Neuroimmune response is the result of a delicate balance between the production of inflammatory mediators by immune cells and the ability of neurons to sense them through the expression of specific receptors.
Emerging evidence indicates that cytokines modulate brain excitability, and various mechanisms have been identified to the convergence between cytokines and the glutamatergic system.

The dynamical and functional interaction between neuronal IL-1 receptor type I (IL-1RI) and the NMDA receptor (NMDAR) complex will be discussed.

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.


Hervé Barmasse, l'alpinista "figlio del Cervino": perché sostenere i ricercatori del NICO

«Garantire un futuro migliore a chi soffre di malattie che conosciamo bene, come Alzheimer, Sclerosi Multipla e SMA». Il nostro amico Hervé Barmasse spiega perché è importante sostenere il lavoro dei nostri 70 ricercatori. Come? Con una piccola donazione o con il tuo 5xmille. Guarda il video!
