Prophylactic activation of neuroprotective stress response pathways by dietary and behavioral manipulations


It is well established that when most types of cells, including neurons, are exposed to a mild stress they increase their ability to resist more severe stress. This “preconditioning” phenomenon involves up-regulation of genes that encode cytoprotective proteins such as heat-shock proteins and growth factors. We found that a similar beneficial cellular… (More)
