Neurogenesis, the production of new neurons from less differentiated precursor cells, normally occurs in adult brains in the subventricular zone (SVZ) of the lateral ventricles and the subgranular zone of the hippocampal dentate gyrus. Neurogenesis declines with aging. In previous studies, neurogenesis was stimulated by 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine hydrochloride (MPTP) in young animals. In this study, we examined the effect of acute MPTP administration and mutant α-synuclein… CONTINUE READING
