    Neurodegenerative Diseases A piece of well-oiled machinery consists of an intricate and complex system: there are well-organized processes, mechanisms within the device work efficiently, and multiple processes function simultaneously to subsequently perform various functions. What happens when there is a glitch in the machine? When there is something wrong, such as connections between intricate processes, which do not follow through, the machine fails to function properly. In some cases, there

    solution to understanding such diseases. In the recent two decades, genetically modified animals, also known as transgenic animals, have been used to save many lives diagnosed with neurodegenerative diseases. Although genetically modified organisms are often argued against because of the disadvantages to using them and the ethics of animal experimentation, these mice carrying neurodegenerative diseases have made notable contributions to the research and study of neurodegenerative disorders and are worth

    Linking Brain and Behavior: Reflections on Neurodegenerative Diseases and Fetal Neural Transplantation Neurodegenerative diseases are caused by malfunctions within the motor sector of the nervous system. These malfunctions, which are caused by the presence or absence of hormones, are a direct result of neural cell deterioration within the brain. Thus, biological problems of the brain, or rather predicaments arising between cellular connections within the brain, and the treatment of such conditions

    Pathogenesis of Familial Alzheimer’s Disease. Introduction Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a progressive cognitive decline resulting in memory and language deficits, personality changes, and gradual loss of independence. AD is the most common form of age related dementia, effecting over 5.2 million Americans age 65 years and older[1, 2]. Most cases of AD are idiopathic in nature, however a rare variant, Familial Alzheimer’s Disease (FAD), is related to autosomal

    paper ... ... of the 44 participants had developed a neurodegenerative disorder (Mahowald & Schenck, 2013, p. 417). There was another study done by Schenck and his colleagues and they found that in after a five year follow-up 11 out of 29 (38%) developed a neurodegenerative disorder after being initially diagnosed with RBD. After a seven year follow-up their results showed an increase of 27% of the participants developed a neurodegenerative disorder (Gagnon et al., 2006, p. 428). Though, findings

    Neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease are caused by the aggregation of abnormal proteins in neurons. An essential component of cellular function is the correct assimilation of proteins in the cell. Proteins fold into specific structures and then carry out cellular functions. However, when this folding process runs amuck, abnormal proteins are introduced into the cell. In neurodegenerative diseases, these protein aggregates are characterized by having genes

    greater chance of obtaining a harmful injury. Sometimes these injuries can be self-inflicted without the suffering individual being aware of the harm. The lack of degeneration of these stimuli is sometimes referred to as a neurodegenerative disorder. The technical term neurodegenerative disorders is a word that encompasses the gradual loss of neuron structure and function. The mechanisms that are attributed to neurodegeneration have not yet been completely identified. There are distinct proteins involved

    therefore it intrigues us to learn more about this vital organ. My fascination with the brain arose while taking introductory biology and psychology courses. My deepened interest towards the neural basis of memory and learning and its impacts on neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s eventually lead me to attain an undergraduate research opportunity in the Mizumori laboratory. The Mizumori laboratory’s primary focus is to understand the neural mechanism of natural and adaptive behaviors. Spatial

    Metabolic diseases and neurodegenerative diseases (ND) are the hallmarks of modern health issues, affecting millions of people worldwide. Even though these diseases have different phenotypic manifestations and symptoms, they share many pathophysiological characteristics such as chronic endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and the impairment of ER stress responses such as the unfolded protein response (UPR) that cannot re-establish homeostasis. In other studies, the disturbance in lipid metabolism in
