Adiponectin is an anti-atherogenic protein secreted by adipose cells that improves insulin sensitivity. Notably, adiponectin receptors are expressed in the brain, suggesting that adiponectin signaling disruption may impact neurologic function. Recently, studies have demonstrated the association of adiponectin levels with cerebrovascular disorders and… CONTINUE READING
