International Conference on Neuroprotective Agents (13th ICNA Conference)

The ICNA International Conference on Neuroprotective Agents is a series of biennial conferences began in 1991, and have been held throughout the U.S. and internationally. Each conference is held in a smaller venue, usually on the water, and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal. Almost every person attending is expected to present a paper […]

Environmental enrichment reverts the cognitive effects of altitude hypoxia inducing changes at the neurogliovascular unit

Microvascular environment plays a fundamental role in the adaptive response to increases in activity, involving an increase in energy demand. To punctual increases in demand, the response is effected by changes in local flow, but if demand remains high, angiogenic process is triggered through the formation of new capillaries from preexisting vessels. The triggering factor […]

Neurovascular and cognitive effects of enriched environment and VEGF administration in developing rats

Postnatal development of the visual cortex is modulated by experience, especially during the critical period. Effects of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) have been described in the neuronal, glial and vascular components of the neurogliovascular unit (1-4). In addition, VEGF is also involved in hippocampal-dependent learning. Similar effects have been demonstrated for enriched environments. Our […]

Physical exercise mediates neuroprotective responses to the effects of altitude hypoxia at the neurogliovascular unit

Microvascular environment plays a fundamental role in the adaptive response to increases in activity, involving an increase in energy demand. To puntual increases in demand, the response is effected by changes in local flow, but if demand remains high, angiogenic process is triggered through the formation of new capillaries from preexisting vessels. The trigger factor […]

VEGF intracerebral administration rescues the loss of cognitive improvement mediated by Environmental Enrichment after Traumatic Brain Injury in developing rats

Brain postnatal development is modulated by experience. Experience-mediated changes increase neuronal activity leading to increased metabolic demands that involve adaptive changes including ones at the microvascular network. Trophic factors are crucial in CNS development and cell survival in adults. We have proposed the term
angioglioneurins to define molecules acting on the three components of the neurogliovascular […]
