Running exercise-induced up-regulation of hippocampal brain-derived neurotrophic factor is CREB-dependent.

Abstract

The past decade has witnessed burgeoning evidence that antidepressant medications and physical exercise increase the expression of hippocampal brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). This phenomenon has gained widespread appeal, because BDNF is one of the first macromolecules observed to play a central role not only in the treatment of mood disorders, but… (More)
