Several studies found that FE65, a cytoplasmic adaptor protein, interacts with APP and LRP1, altering the trafficking and processing of APP. We have previously shown that FE65 interacts with the ApoE receptor, ApoER2, altering its trafficking and processing. Interestingly, it has been shown that FE65 can act as a linker between APP and LRP1 or ApoER2. In(More)
Central processing of complex auditory tasks requires elaborate circuitry. The auditory midbrain, or inferior colliculus (IC), epitomizes such precise organization, where converging inputs form discrete, tonotopically-arranged axonal layers. Previously in rat, we established that shaping of multiple afferent patterns in the IC central nucleus (CNIC) occurs(More)
Classical music has been said to enhance cognition, which effect may be related to musical structure. 19 subjects who listened to highly structured music scored somewhat higher afterwards on cognitive performance than the 15 who listened to less structured music. Since this did not reach statistical significance, other as yet unidentified factors may also(More)
Oligodendrocytes readily regenerate and replace myelin membranes around axons in the adult mammalian central nervous system (CNS) following injury. The ability to regenerate oligodendrocytes depends on the availability of neural progenitors called oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs) in the adult CNS that respond to injury-associated signals to induce OPC(More)
Myelin regeneration (remyelination) is a spontaneous process that occurs following central nervous system demyelination. However, for reasons that remain poorly understood, remyelination fails in the progressive phase of multiple sclerosis. Emerging evidence indicates that alternatively activated macrophages in central nervous system lesions are required(More)
