  1. The Role of Cytoskeletal Morphology in the Nanoorganization of Synapse

    Kaliyamoorthy, Venkatapathy
    Synapse is the fundamental unit of synaptic transmission. Learning, memory and neurodegenerative diseases of the brain are attributed to the maintenance and alteration in synaptic connections. The efficiency for synaptic transmission depends on how well the post synapse receives the signals from the presynapse; this in turn depends on the receptors present in the post synaptic density (PSD). PSD is present in the post synapse right opposite to the neurotransmitter release site in presynapse (active zone) is an indispensable part of the synapse. The PSD is comprised of receptors and scaffold proteins, which is ultimately supported by the actin cytoskeleton...

  2. Evaluation of Early Pathogenic Mechanisms of Synaptic Dysfunction in Alzheimer’s Disease

    Shaw, Eisha
    Alzheimer’s disease is a debilitating, progressive neurodegenerative disorder in the elderly, characterized by severe loss of memory and higher cognitive functions. In the hundred years since its discovery, Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has traversed from the status of a ‘rare neurological oddity’ to one of the greatest challenges faced by healthcare and medicine in this millennium. A reported 44 million people currently suffer from AD but only 1 in 4 people have been diagnosed. Although AD has been an area of intense research for almost 50 years now, most studies have focused on the end stage disease. Years of study on...
