Key Features

@introbul:Key Features @bul:* Clinical features of stroke and the current stasis of stroke therapy * Alzheimers Disease--pathology, pathological proteins, etiology, pathogenesis, neurotransmitter alterations, and treatment strategies * An examination of the regulation of AP-1 and related transcription factors and their role in brain injury and drug abuse-related behavior * Emerging roles of the transcription factor NF(B * Recent advances about the nature of alterations in ion channel structure or function which may be responsible for epileptogenesis * An integrated model accounting for the multiple mechanisms involved in the posttranslational regulation of glutamate ionotroic receptors * Genetic mutation and the Glycine Receptor
