Molecular fine-tuning in the perineuronal nets orchestrate plasticity and repair in the CNS

PNNs are a layer of macromolecular complexes in which extracellular matrix molecules, polysaccharides (such as chondroitin sulphate proteoglycans and hyaluronan) and soluble proteins, form a compact layer of aggregates and anchor onto the neuronal surface. Using biochemical, cell biology, together with functional studies, we have established the core molecular and structural components of the PNNs and demonstrated that manipulation of PNNs effectively increases plasticity in the adult CNS.

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!
