The link between brain energy homeostasis and neuronal activity

The link between brain energy homeostasis and neuronal activity

Frontiers E-books.

The brain is an extremely energy consuming part of the body, which makes it dangerously vulnerable to metabolic stress. It’s no wonder then that abnormalities of brain energy metabolism are becoming the usual suspects and a hallmark of many neurodegenerative diseases. The socioeconomic burden of these alone begs for urgent measures to be taken for better understanding both fundamental and applied problems of neuroenergetics and neuroprotection. For instance, brain imaging reveals that the...

Mathematical Modeling of the Immune System in Homeostasis, Infection and Disease

Mathematical Modeling of the Immune System in Homeostasis, Infection and Disease

Frontiers Media SA. 2020

The immune system provides the host organism with defense mechanisms against invading pathogens and tumor development and it plays an active role in tissue and organ regeneration. Deviations from the normal physiological functioning of the immune system can lead to the development of diseases with various pathologies including autoimmune diseases and cancer. Modern research in immunology is characterized by an unprecedented level of detail that has progressed towards viewing the immune...

Homeostatic Control of Brain Function

Homeostatic Control of Brain Function

Oxford University Press. 2015

Homeostatic Control of Brain Function offers a broad view of brain health and diverse perspectives for potential treatments, targeting key areas such as mitochondria, the immune system, epigenetic changes, and regulatory molecules such as ions, neuropeptides, and neuromodulators. Loss of homeostasis becomes expressed as a diverse array of neurological disorders. Each disorder has multiple comorbidities - with some crossing over several conditions - and often disease-specific treatments...
