Immune Activation During Pregnancy in Mice Leads to Dopaminergic Hyperfunction and Cognitive Impairment in the Offspring: A Neurodevelopmental Animal Model of Schizophrenia
Prenatal poly I:C administration causes maturation-dependent increased subcortical DA function and cognitive impairment in the offspring, indicating a neurodevelopmental animal model of schizophrenia. Expand
Alterations of serum levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in depressed patients with or without antidepressants
It is suggested that low BDNF levels may play a pivotal role in the pathophysiology of MDD and that antidepressants may increase BDNF in depressed patients. Expand
Nervous system involvement after infection with COVID-19 and other coronaviruses
The research into neurological complications in CoV infections and the possible mechanisms of damage to the nervous system are reviewed. Expand
Ethnic difference of the BDNF 196G/A (val66met) polymorphism frequencies: The possibility to explain ethnic mental traits
It is indicated that both BDNF and serotonin transporter have ethnic differences in frequencies of the polymorphisms, suggesting that BDNFand serotonin transporter may act in harmony to produce ethnic traits. Expand
Increased Levels of Glutamate in Brains from Patients with Mood Disorders
This study suggests that glutamate plays a role in the pathophysiology of bipolar disorder and major depression. Expand
Vicarious traumatization in the general public, members, and non-members of medical teams aiding in COVID-19 control
Increased attention should be paid to the psychological problems of the medical staff, especially non-front-line nurses, and general public under the situation of the spread and control of COVID-19. Expand
Knowledge and attitudes of medical staff in Chinese psychiatric hospitals regarding COVID-19
Increased attention should be paid to the knowledge and attitudes of medical staff at psychiatric hospitals during the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as independent predictors of willingness to care for patients. Expand
Phencyclidine-Induced Cognitive Deficits in Mice Are Improved by Subsequent Subchronic Administration of the Novel Selective α7 Nicotinic Receptor Agonist SSR180711
It is suggested that repeated PCP administration significantly decreased the density of alpha7 nAChRs in the brain and that the alpha7nAChR agonist SSR180711 could ameliorate cognitive deficits in mice after repeated administration of PCP. Expand

  • 1 August 2010
An historical overview of the role played by BDNF in the pathophysiology of mood disorders and in the mechanism of action of therapeutic agents is provided and particular focus will be given to the potential use of BDNF as a biomarker for mood disorders. Expand
Decreased serum levels of D-serine in patients with schizophrenia: evidence in support of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor hypofunction hypothesis of schizophrenia.
Reduced levels of D-serine may play a role in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia, and serum D- and L-Serine levels might provide a measurable biological marker for schizophrenia. Expand
