Significant differences exist among neurons expressing dopamine receptors

An international collaboration with the participation of the INC has shown that neurons expressing dopamine D2 receptors have different molecular features and functions, depending on their anatomical localization within the striatum. The research, conducted with mouse models and published in Nature Communications, opens the door to develop better treatments for diseases in which dopamine is altered, such as schizophrenia, addictions and Parkinson’s disease. 

Motoneurones neonatals

NeuroHeal, a new treatment developed at UAB, shows good results in neonatal motoneurons

NeuroHeal, a combination of replacement drugs to restore the function of peripheral nerves, has neuroprotective effects on injured motor neurons in neonatal animal models, according to a new study by the team of researchers from the INc, led by Dr. Caty Casas, who are studying and developing this treatment and who had already demonstrated these effects in adult motor neurons.
