Neuronal replacement from endogenous precursors in the adult brain after stroke
In the adult brain, new neurons are continuously generated in the subventricular zone and dentate gyrus, but it is unknown whether these neurons can replace those lost following damage or disease.Expand

Inflammation is detrimental for neurogenesis in adult brain
New hippocampal neurons are continuously generated in the adult brain. Here, we demonstrate that lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammation, which gives rise to microglia activation in the area whereExpand

Persistent Production of Neurons from Adult Brain Stem Cells During Recovery after Stroke
Neural stem cells in the subventricular zone of adult rodents produce new striatal neurons that may replace those that have died after stroke; however, the neurogenic response has been consideredExpand

BDNF-induced TrkB activation down-regulates the K+–Cl− cotransporter KCC2 and impairs neuronal Cl− extrusion
Pathophysiological activity and various kinds of traumatic insults are known to have deleterious long-term effects on neuronal Cl− regulation, which can lead to a suppression of fast postsynapticExpand

Forebrain ependymal cells are Notch-dependent and generate neuroblasts and astrocytes after stroke
Neurons are continuously generated from stem cells in discrete regions in the adult mammalian brain. We found that ependymal cells lining the lateral ventricles were quiescent and did not contributeExpand

Seizures induce widespread upregulation of cystatin B, the gene mutated in progressive myoclonus epilepsy, in rat forebrain neurons
Loss of function mutations in the gene encoding the cysteine protease inhibitor, cystatin B (CSTB), are responsible for the primary defect in human progressive myoclonus epilepsy (EPM1). CSTBExpand

Brain inflammation and adult neurogenesis: The dual role of microglia
In the adult mammalian brain, neurogenesis from neural stem/progenitor cells continues in two regions: the subgranular zone in the dentate gyrus and the subventricular zone lining the lateralExpand

Apoptosis and proliferation of dentate gyrus neurons after single and intermittent limbic seizures.
Neuronal apoptosis was observed in the rat dentate gyrus in two experimental models of human limbic epilepsy. Five hours after one hippocampal kindling stimulation, a marked increase of in situExpand

Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor 1 Is a Negative Regulator of Progenitor Proliferation in Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis
Tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) is a proinflammatory cytokine, acting through the TNF-R1 and TNF-R2 receptors. The two receptors have been proposed to mediate distinct TNF-α effects in the CNS,Expand

A latent neurogenic program in astrocytes regulated by Notch signaling in the mouse
Neurogenesis is restricted in the adult mammalian brain; most neurons are neither exchanged during normal life nor replaced in pathological situations. We report that stroke elicits a latentExpand
