Signaling pathway essential for neural connectivity identified during brain development – Neuroscience News

Summary: The study reveals a signaling pathway that controls the formation of synapses between pyramidal neurons and inhibitory neurons expressing the protein parvalbumin. Source: King’s College London New research from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London has demonstrated that brain wiring requires the control of local protein synthesis at …

Amygdala connectivity predicts response to ketamine treatment in patients with anxiety depression

A region of the brain known as the amygdala may play a key role in predicting symptom improvement after ketamine treatment in patients with treatment-resistant anxiety depression Journal of Affective Disorders. “Since the antidepressant effects of ketamine in patients with anxiety depression remain uncertain, there is a need to investigate potential biomarkers predicting the antidepressant …
