Mitochondria in Neuroplasticity and Neurological Disorders

  title={Mitochondria in Neuroplasticity and Neurological Disorders},
  author={Mark P. Mattson and Marc Gleichmann and Aiwu Cheng},
Mitochondrial electron transport generates the ATP that is essential for the excitability and survival of neurons, and the protein phosphorylation reactions that mediate synaptic signaling and related long-term changes in neuronal structure and function. Mitochondria are highly dynamic organelles that divide, fuse, and move purposefully within axons and dendrites. Major functions of mitochondria in neurons include the regulation of Ca(2+) and redox signaling, developmental and synaptic… CONTINUE READING
