Mercury sulfide-containing Hua-Feng-Dan and 70W (Rannasangpei) protect against LPS plus MPTP-induced neurotoxicity and disturbance of gut microbiota in mice.

Conclusionsα-HgS-containing Hua-Feng-Dan and β-HgS-containing 70W at clinical doses protected against chronic LPS plus MPTP-induced toxicity to the brain and gut, suggesting HgS-containing traditional medicines could target gut microbiota as a mechanism of their therapeutic effects.Graphical abstract

  Cannabis, weed, marijuana, pot. It goes by several names, but we all know what it smells like. As weed becomes more mainstream, we on the Not Crazy podcast want to know: Is marijuana really an effective treatment for anxiety? Is it just a coping mechanism? Or a vice? In today’s podcast, Gabe and Jackie look at the research and weigh out the evidence. They also interview Eileen Davidson, a rheumatoid arthritis patient who regularly uses marijuana as a medicine to see what she has to say. What’s your take? Tune in for an open-minded discussion about weed. (Transcript Available Below) SUBSCRIBE &REV...

Contributor : Yogita SharmaSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensSince the pioneering studies using fetal cell transplants in Parkinson ’s disease (PD), brain repair by cell replacement has remained a long-standing and realistic goal for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders including PD. Authentic and functional dopamine (DA) neurons can now be generated from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs), and these cell preparation s are both safe and functional when transplanted to animal models of PD1. However, although resulting grafts from fetal brain tissue and hPS...

ga FR Abstract Safe street crossing is important for older adults' social inclusion. We assessed gait kinematic adaptation under different simulated street crossing conditions in older adults with Parkinson's disease (PD) and made comparisons with older adults without PD to understand how PD interferes in outdoor task performance, helping in the development of strategies to reduce road traffic accident risk. In 20 older adults without PD (control group - CG) and 20 with PD (GPD), we assessed usual gait (C1), gait during street crossing simulation (C2), and gait during reduced-time street crossing simulation (C3). ...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Although it is known that individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD) have difficulties performing dual-task activities, most of the studies have verified the effect of dual tasks on gait using tasks that are uncommon to perform while walking. However, the realization of tasks involving gait that really represents the daily activities carried out by the participants, allow us to detect real fall risk situations of individuals with PD during their gait. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to verify the influence of daily-life dual-tasks on gait spatiotemporal variables of the older adults with PD. ...

by Jyotika Bahuguna, Ajith Sahasranamam, Arvind Kumar The excess of 15-30 Hz (β-band) oscillations in the basal ganglia is one of the key signatures of Parkinson ’s disease (PD). The STN-GPe network is integral to generation and modulation ofβ band oscillations in basal ganglia. However, the role of changes in the firing rates and spike bursting of STN and GPe neurons in shaping these oscillations has remained unclear. In order to uncouple their effects, we studied the dynamics of STN-GPe network using numerical simulations. In particular, we used a neuron model, in which firing rates and spike bursting ca...

The next few weeks and months will be challenging for many as we battle globally with coronavirus. I know that some of those challenges will be financial and I don’t want anyone to lose out on vital information or even lighthearted reading just because they don’t have the means to pay for it. Therefore, from today I have made all my eBooks free of charge. You can find all my books in the bookstore here: All but one book in my bookstore has a PDF version you can download instantly, the only one that doesn’t is a leaflet that was printed by another group wh...

This study, for the first time, shows that transplantation of non-autologous mitochondria from healthy skeletal muscle cells into normal cardiomyocytes leads to short-term improvement of bioenergetics indicating "supercharged" state. However, over time these improved effects disappear, which suggests transplantation of mitochondria may have a potential application in settings where there is an acute stress.
