Summary of "Spatial quantification of the synaptic activity phenotype across large populations of neurons with Markov random fields."

The collective and coordinated synaptic activity of large neuronal populations is relevant to neuronal development as well as a range of neurological diseases. Quantification of synaptically-mediated neuronal signalling permits further downstream analysis as well as potential application in target validation and in vitro screening assays. Our aim is to develop a phenotypic quantification for neuronal activity imaging data of large populations of neurons, in particular relating to the spatial component of the activity.

Intraneuronal accumulation of C99 contributes to synaptic alterations, apathy-like behavior, and spatial learning deficits in 3×TgAD and 2×TgAD mice.

The triple transgenic mouse model (3×TgAD: APPswe, Tau, PS1) recapitulates both amyloid β (Aβ)- and tau-related lesions as well as synaptic and memory deficits. In these mice, we reported an early ...

Synaptic mitochondria are more susceptible to traumatic brain injury-induced oxidative damage and respiratory dysfunction than non-synaptic mitochondria.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) results in mitochondrial dysfunction and induction of lipid peroxidation (LP). Lipid peroxidation-derived neurotoxic aldehydes such as 4-HNE and acrolein bind to mitochond...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods used to take into account and incorporate spatial autocorrelation and regional variation into regression analysis models of data that has spatial dependency, and also to provide information on the spatial relationships among the variables.

Physiological integration of multiple SYNAPTIC POTENTIAL signals to reach the threshold and initiate postsynaptic ACTION POTENTIALS. In spatial summation stimulations from additional synaptic junctions are recruited to generate s response. In temporal summation succeeding stimuli signals are summed up to reach the threshold. The postsynaptic potentials can be either excitatory or inhibitory (EPSP or IPSP).

A persistent activity-dependent decrease in synaptic efficacy between NEURONS. It typically occurs following repeated low-frequency afferent stimulation, but it can be induced by other methods. Long-term depression appears to play a role in MEMORY.

A neuronal protein consisting of three PDZ DOMAINS, an SH3 DOMAIN, and a C-terminal guanylate kinase-like region (see MAGUK PROTEINS). It localizes to the POST-SYNAPTIC DENSITY and associates with the cytoplasmic tail of NMDA RECEPTORS and SHAKER POTASSIUM CHANNELS, playing a critical role in NMDA receptor-mediated SYNAPTIC PLASTICITY.

The communication from a NEURON to a target (neuron, muscle, or secretory cell) across a SYNAPSE. In chemical synaptic transmission, the presynaptic neuron releases a NEUROTRANSMITTER that diffuses across the synaptic cleft and binds to specific synaptic receptors, activating them. The activated receptors modulate specific ion channels and/or second-messenger systems in the postsynaptic cell. In electrical synaptic transmission, electrical signals are communicated as an ionic current flow across ELECTRICAL SYNAPSES.
