My Elbert: Neuroimmune Reactions, Mental Heath & Neurodegenerative Disorders

Very, very interesting! Case reports of Parkinson’s in COVID-19 and protein components of SARS-CoV-2 could trigger the aggregation of α-synuclein into amyloid. They chose to study the two most abundant proteins of the virus: the spike (S-) protein that helps SARS-CoV-2 enter cells, and the nucleocapsid (N-) protein that encapsulates the RNA genome inside theContinue reading “My Elbert: Neuroimmune Reactions, Mental Heath & Neurodegenerative Disorders”

My Elbert: Neurotoxins & Learning

Metal-based Toxicity Neuroscientists have previously found that tau can become toxic when extra chemical molecules accumulate with its structure in the brain, causing it to form tangles of protein that destroy surrounding tissue. Researchers at Gladstone Institute, have found that calm reduces levels of the protein tau, which is known for its role in Alzheimer’sContinue reading “My Elbert: Neurotoxins & Learning”

Furthermore, Neuroscientist Suzana Herculano-Houzel has pointed out that our brains are different because of the number of neurons packedContinue reading “My Elbert: Language & The Mind”
