FENS-EJN 2014 Video Contest Winners Announced

FENS, in partnership with EJN, launched a video contest for the FENS Forum 2014. The contest challenged Forum student and postdoctoral fellow attendees, with creating videos about neuroscience.


cAMP-CREB signaling and bipolar disorder

Researchers established a novel viral method to make a surprising observation: the amplitude of cAMP–CREB signaling in cells from human skin biopsies predicted the way that the circadian hormone melatonin responds to light in healthy individuals, and it was much higher in cells from bipolar patients. “Our study suggests that variation in the activity of [...]

Increasing small conductance Ca2+-activated potassium channel activity reverses ischemia-induced impairment of long-term potentiation

by J. E. Orfila, K. Shimizu, A. K. Garske, G. Deng, J. Maylie, R. J. Traystman, N. Quillinan, J. P. Adelman, P. S. Herson Abstract Global cerebral ischemia following cardiac arrest and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CA/CPR) causes injury to hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons and impairs cognition. Small conductance Ca2+-activated potassium channels type 2 (SK2), expressed in [...]
