Imbalanced excitatory to inhibitory synaptic input precedes motor neuron degeneration in an animal model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Abstract

Loss of motor neurons is the key neuropathological feature of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Although these neurons are targeted by many synapses, little is known about the importance of the pre-synaptic excitatory and inhibitory input for motor neuron degeneration. The present study aimed in determining the composition and abundance of… (More)
