Although neural stem cell (NSC) transplantation has been investigated as a promising tool for reconstituting damaged brains, recent evidences suggest that NSCs may rescue the brain via paracrine effects rather than by direct cell replacements. In this study, we attempted to determine the neuroprotective effect of NSC-conditioned media (NSC-CM) in in vitro(More)
In this study, we examined expressional changes of VPAC1 receptor in aged rat brains using an immunohistochemical approach and found that its immunoreactivities are significantly reduced in the cerebral cortex, hippocampal region, and amygdala of aged rats. These results suggest that this reduction could underlie aging-associated memory/learning deficits(More)
