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 […]

2016 FENS Forum of Neuroscience, July 2nd, 2016 to July 6th, 2016, Copenhagen, Denmark

Venue
Bella Centre, Copenhagen, Denmark

The FENS Forum is Europe’s preeminent neuroscience meeting: where European Neuroscience Meets the World. By uniting thousands of participants, the FENS Forum 2016 will facilitate and promote the exchange of knowledge and neuroscience research. Molecules and photons, neurodegenerative diseases and stem cells are only a few of the key topics to […]

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.

Effects of physical exercise in cerebrovascular mechanisms of adaptation to altitude

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.
