Article Collection - Molecules of Neural Disorders

In this series of reviews, we take a look at the molecular basis of neural disorders. The topics addressed include: iPSC technology for autism models, CaMKII dysregulation in Alzheimer's disease, migroglia in neuropathic pain, metabotropic glutamate receptors in schizophrenia, and cortical kinate receptors in anxiety.

    Since 2009, evidence has accumulated to suggest that Tau aggregates form first in a small number of brain cells, from where they propagate to other regions, resulting in neurodegeneration and disease. Propagat...
