The American Association of Nursing was established in 1968 to support and advance the art and science of neuroscience nursing. During the course of 50 years, the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing has published numerous articles detailing the advances in the treatments of neurologic disease. The following highlights the strides achieved in the management of Parkinson disease, neuromuscular disease, and multiple sclerosis (MS).

Phosphorylated α-Synuclein-Copper Complex Formation in the Pathogenesis of Parkinson's Disease. Parkinsons Dis. 2017;2017:9164754 Authors: Castillo-Gonzalez JA, Loera-Arias MJ, Saucedo-Cardenas O, Montes-de-Oca-Luna R, Garcia-Garcia A, Rodriguez-Rocha H Abstract Parkinson's disease is the second most important neurodegenerative disorder worldwide. It is characterized by the presence of Lewy bodies, which are mainly composed of α-synuclein and ubiquitin-bound proteins. Both the ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS) and autophagy-lysosomal pathway (ALS) are altered in Parkinson's disease, leading...

Authors: Dale W, Kotwal AA, Shega JW, Schumm LP, Kern DW, Pinto JM, Pudelek KM, Waite LJ, McClintock MK Abstract BACKGROUND: The Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) has not been administered to a representative national sample, precluding comparison of patient scores to the general population and for risk factor identification. METHODS: A validated survey-based adaptation of the MoCA (MoCA-SA) was administered to a probability sample of home-dwelling US adults aged 62 to 90, using the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project (n=3129), yielding estimates of prevalence in the United States. The associatio...

Authors: Gwon SY, Rhee KJ, Sung HJ Abstract The risk of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune disease, in the elderly population increases along with that of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease. Identifying specific biomarkers for RA can clarify the underlying molecular mechanisms and can aid diagnosis and patient care. To this end, the present study investigated the genes and proteins that are differentially expressed in RA using a mouse collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) model. We performed gene microarray and proteome array analyses using blood samples from the mice...

Conclusions The decrease in functional connectivity between sensory and motor cortices, despite an increase in local spectral power, suggests that propofol causes a functional disconnection of cortices with increases in autonomous activity within cortical regions. This pattern occurs across diseases evaluated, suggesting that these may be generalizable effects of propofol in patients with movement disorders and beyond. Sensorimotor network disruption may underlie anesthetic-induced loss of volitional control.
