Traumatic brain injury (TBI) evokes an intense neuroinflammatory reaction that is essentially mediated by activated microglia and that has been reported to act as a secondary injury mechanism that further promotes neuronal death. It involves the excessive production of inflammatory cytokines and the diminution of neuroprotective and neurotrophic factors,(More)
Comorbidity of cognitive and stress disorders is a common clinical sequel of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that is essentially determined by the site and severity of the insult, but also by the extent of the ensuing neuroinflammatory response. The present study sought to examine the late effects of closed-head TBI on memory function and anxiety in mice, in(More)
Remyelination is an endogenous regenerative process of myelin repair in the central nervous system (CNS) with limited efficacy in demyelinating disorders. As strategies enhancing endogenous remyelination become a therapeutic challenge, we have focused our study on α-secretase-induced sAPPα release, a soluble endogenous protein with neuroprotective and(More)
