Until now, many researchers have been trying to find new medical plants and their components, which can promote neurogenesis in the neurogenic regions, as a potential therapeutic agent of neurodegenerative diseases and many studies have demonstrated that some plant extracts and their components have the capacity to promote neurogenesis.
This is a novel discovery that tandospirone can reverse the deficit in neurogenesis caused by alcohol," said study leader neuroscientist Professor Selena Bartlett from QUT's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation.
The hippocampus is one of the major sites of neurogenesis in the adult human brain, and the circuit that the researchers identified regulates this neuron-producing process.
There is evidence that treatments for depression and anxiety may work in part by stimulating neurogenesis in the brain.
In his book, Cortright points to research showing that neurogenesis is "the most important biomarker for brain health most people never heard of.
In this study of young adult members of a Faroese birth cohort, we hypothesized that prenatal exposure to methylmercury might adversely affect adult neurogenesis, thus attenuating the potential beneficial effect of aerobic fitness on cognitive functions.
It is well established that depletion of serotonin in the brain results in suppression of neurogenesis in the adult hippocampal, whereas elevation of the level of monoamines, serotonin and noradrenalin increases the rate of neurogenesis (26,27).
The memory of the treated mice also deteriorated because the formation of these new brain cells - a process known as neurogenesis - is important for certain memory functions.
Compared to untreated mice, the mice who lost their healthy gut bacteria performed worse in memory tests and showed a loss of neurogenesis (new brain cells) in a section of their hippocampus that typically produces new brain cells throughout an individual's lifetime.
Oxidative stress is implicated in the pathophysiology of a wide variety of neurodegenerative disorders and its role in neurogenesis is becoming increasingly acknowledged.
Written and edited by accredited experts, Neurogenesis is part of the "Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology" series.
Study design: Antidepressant-like effects of ZZHPD were investigated through behavioral tests, and potential mechanism was assessed by neuroendocrine system, neurotrophin and hippocampal neurogenesis.
He has highlighted the critical significance of processes of neurogenesis and neuroinflammation, yet little has been offered to practitioners in terms of practical approaches to promoting the brain health that he encourages.
Some recent research reports suggest that adult hippocampal neurogenesis is involved in hippocampus-mediated learning and memory.
To see whether this process, known as neurogenesis, could drive the loss of childhood memories, researchers ran tests with animals trained to fear a particular environment through electric shock.
