Understanding how brain controls social interactions is one of the central goals of neuroscience. Whereas social interactions and their effects on the emotional state of an individual are relatively well described at the behavioral level, much less is known about neural mechanisms involved in these very complex phenomena, especially in the amygdala, a key structure processing emotions in the brain ...

ArrestAD proposes a novel and visionary thinking resulting from the demonstration of the central role of a particular heparan sulfate species at the intracellular level in neurons and in circulating cells in the molecular pathology of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). AD is a societal challenge for which there is neither prevention nor possible cure. Research in the field has long been refining classic co ...

The Extracellular Matrix in Epileptogenesis (ECMED)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

Over 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy and 30% are resistant to our present therapies. Epilepsy, therefore, comprises a major burden to society and so there is a pressing need for new approaches to treatment. The brain extracellular matrix (ECM) plays a critical role in governing brain excitability and function. Although research into the role of the ECM in neuronal signalling and network ...

Targets and biomarkers for antiepileptogenesis (EPITARGET)

Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2018,

Epilepsy is a devastating condition affecting over 50 million people worldwide. This multidisciplinary project is focused on the process leading to epilepsy, epileptogenesis, in adults. Our main hypothesis is that there are combinations of various causes, acting in parallel and/or in succession, that lead to epileptogenesis and development of seizures. Our central premise and vision is that a comb ...

Brain disorders comprise a major burden for the society. Recent analyses of the neuropsychiatric disease-related gene polymorphisms as well as genomics and proteomics have identified the components of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and the cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) in the brain as pivotal for those diseases. The ECM/CAMs span the synaptic cleft and regulate the synaptic dynamics. Furthermore, ...

"We identify Neuroelectronics as a novel mature discipline, at the boundaries between neurobiology, electrophysiology, computational neurosciences, microelectronics, materials sciences, and nanotechnologies. In the proposed Marie-Curie consortium, each of these components, as well as the specific application contexts (i.e. basic research, neuroprosthetics, and pharmaceutical applications), are rep ...

Cilia are microtubule (MT)-based external cell extensions that perform sensory and locomotory functions. Disruption of ciliary beating leads to human disorders such as infertility, airways diseases and hydrocephalus. The central pair of MTs (CP) apparatus is required for proper cilia motility yet the molecular mechanism that regulates its assembly is unknown. Loss of function mutations of MTs seve ...

Role of the Grhl1 gene in skin cancer (Grhl1in skin cancer)

Start date: May 1, 2010, End date: Apr 30, 2014,

Many functions of the Grainyhead-like (Grhl) transcription factors have already been studied in various animal models. So far these studies have been primarily concerned with the roles of such factors in development and wound healing. Now we have new preliminary data indicating that the Grhl factors are potential novel tumor suppressors. We have already established that the Grhl1-deficient mice ha ...

SRF target genes in epilepsy (EpiTarGene)

Start date: Jun 1, 2009, End date: Nov 29, 2013,

The aim of this project is to identify genes regulated by SRF (Serum Response Factor) in the epilepsy. Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder, affecting 1-3% of human population with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) being the most common type in adults. Unfortunately, current anti-epileptic drugs are ineffective in more than 70% of TLE patients. Therefore, it is very important to understand the m ...

European Study to Establish Biomarkers of Human Ageing (MARK-AGE)

Start date: Apr 1, 2008, End date: Sep 30, 2013,

The rate of ageing in humans is not uniform, due to genetic heterogeneity and the influence of environmental factors. Age-related changes in body function or composition that could serve as a measure of “biological” age and predict the onset of age-related diseases and/or residual lifetime are termed “biomarkers of ageing”. Many candidate biomarkers have been proposed but in all cases their variab ...

Understanding molecular basis of alcohol addiction still remains a great challenge for science and at the same time the only chance for designing successful molecular therapy. Calcium and calmoduline-dependent kinase II alpha (alpha CaMKII) is a major protein of forebrain glutamatergic neurons with well established function in various aspects of cell physiology, e.g. actin remodelling. Alcohol-ind ...

"Neurodegenerative diseases all cause damage to the circuitry of the nervous system, with loss of connections, axons and neurons. The loss can be gradual, as in Alzheimer’s disease, rapid as in stroke, or intermediate as in the delayed neuronal loss after stroke. Following damage, the nervous system is able partially to compensate through the formation of alternative connections and pathways, a pr ...
