A shared pathology among many neurological and neurodegenerative disorders is neuronal loss. Cannabinoids have been shown to be neuroprotective in multiple systems. However, both agonists and antagonists of the CB(1) cannabinoid receptor are neuroprotective, but the mechanisms responsible for these actions remain unclear. Recently a CB(1) receptor(More)
Intracellular signaling mechanisms translate extracellular signals, such as neuronal activity, into effects on dendrite complexity. Deciphering these mechanisms has considerable impact on understanding how the brain develops and what can go wrong in developmental disorders. How neurons regulate intracellular signaling to control their dendrite morphology(More)
In this unit on fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP), an imaging approach to study protein-protein interactions in situ is described. The protocols presented use confocal microscopy to examine the mobility of a fluorescent protein by measuring the recovery of the protein in a bleached area. The data gained in FRAP studies is qualitative and(More)
