Early Social Enrichment Shapes Social Behavior and Nerve Growth Factor and Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor Levels in the Adult Mouse Brain
TLDR
It is indicated that CN, a highly stimulating early social environment, produces differences in social behavior later in life associated with marked changes of neurotrophin levels in selected brain areas, including hippocampus and hypothalamus. Expand
Stress and nerve growth factor Findings in animal models and humans
TLDR
Data is presented supporting the hypothesis that stress-related events both in animal models and humans are characterized by modifications of endogenous nerve growth factor (NGF) synthesis and/or utilization. Expand
Deep TMS on alcoholics: effects on cortisolemia and dopamine pathway modulation. A pilot study.
TLDR
Deep H-coil transcranial magnetic stimulation significantly reduced blood cortisol levels and decreased prolactinemia, thus suggesting dopamine increase, and could be considered a potential new treatment for alcoholism. Expand
Chronic antipsychotic treatment selectively alters nerve growth factor and neuropeptide Y immunoreactivity and the distribution of choline acetyl transferase in rat brain regions.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that antipsychotic drugs alter the regional brain levels of NGF-LI, NPY-LI and ChAT- LI and the possibility that these effects are implicated in their pharmacological and therapeutic properties is raised. Expand
Neurotrophin presence in human coronary atherosclerosis and metabolic syndrome: a role for NGF and BDNF in cardiovascular disease?
TLDR
The first evidence for an altered presence of NGF, p75NTR and MC in both coronary vascular and subepicardial adipose tissue in human coronary atherosclerosis is provided and a significant decrease in plasma NGF and BDNF levels and an elevated amount of plasma leptin and adipose MC in metabolic syndrome patients is provided.

Neurotrophic and metabotrophic potential of nerve growth factor and brain-derived neurotrophic factor: Linking cardiometabolic and neuropsychiatric diseases
TLDR
The findings suggest that neurotrophic and metabotrophic potential of nerve growth factor and brain-derived neurotrophic factor are linked to cardiometabolic and neuropsychiatric diseases. Expand
INHIBITION OF ENDOTOXIN-INDUCED MACROPHAGE CHEMOKINE PRODUCTION BY VASOACTIVE INTESTINAL PEPTIDE AND PITUITARY ADENYLATE CYCLASE-ACTIVATING POLYPEPTIDE IN VITRO AND IN VIVO
On 21-15 May, 2001 in Antalya, Turkey, the First International Meeting of Asia Minor Branch of the International Neuropeptide Society (INPS) was held in an atmosphere combining both science andExpand
Investigating the neurobiology of music: brain-derived neurotrophic factor modulation in the hippocampus of young adult mice
TLDR
It is demonstrated that exposure to music can modulate the activity of the hippocampus by influencing BDNF production and suggested that music exposure might be of help in several central nervous system pathologies. Expand
Learning abilities, NGF and BDNF brain levels in two lines of TNF-α transgenic mice, one characterized by neurological disorders, the other phenotypically normal
TLDR
The findings indicate that TNF-alpha significantly influences BDNF and NGF synthesis, most probably in a dose-dependent manner. Expand
Evidence that nerve growth factor promotes the recovery of peripheral neuropathy induced in mice by Cisplatin: behavioral, structural and biochemical analysis
TLDR
It is found that Cisplatin in adult rodents impairs peripheral sensory function and both sympathetic and sensory peripheral innervation as shown by the hot-plate response, catecholamine distribution and substance P immunoreactivity respectively, and that the reduction of NGF availability could be a cause of CisPlatin-induced peripheral neuropathies.
