Influence of Central Nervous Insulin Sensitivity on Insulin Secretion

Insulin resistance is a central pathophysiological component of type 2 diabetes and is associated with a high risk of cardiovascular disease. The tissue in which it manifests are mainly mu...

Effect of Weight Loss on Brain Insulin Sensitivity in Humans

Obesity if known to be associated with brain insulin resistance in humans. This condition has not only implication for the brain but also for whole-body energy homeostasis. Research in rod...

Regulation of Endogenous Glucose Production by Brain Insulin Action in Insulin Resistance

It is well known that the hormone insulin lowers blood glucose in part by acting directly on the liver and reducing hepatic glucose production. Animal studies have shown that the hormone i...

Insulin Sensitivity of the Brain in Pathogenesis of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

The purpose of the study is to investigate whether insulin sensitivity of the human brain correlates with insulin sensitivity of the liver.

Intranasal Insulin for the Treatment of HAND

Infection with HIV (the virus that causes AIDS) can lead to problems with brain function, such as memory, concentration, judgment, and the speed or control of hands and legs. Neurologists ...

Dose dependent effects of intranasal insulin on resting-state brain activity.

Insulin action in the human brain influences eating behavior, cognition, and whole-body metabolism. Studies investigating brain insulin rely on intranasal application.

The insulin receptor is expressed and functional in cultured blood-brain barrier endothelial cells, but does not mediate insulin entry from blood-to-brain.

Insulin and its receptor are known to be present and functional in the brain. Insulin cerebrospinal fluid concentrations have been shown to correlate with plasma levels of insulin in a non-linear fash...

Tau hyperphosphorylation induces oligomeric insulin accumulation and insulin resistance in neurons.

Insulin signalling deficiencies and insulin resistance have been directly linked to the progression of neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's disease. However, to date little is known about the ...

Pharmacokinetics of Intranasal versus Subcutaneous Insulin in the Mouse.

Insulin delivery to the brain has emerged as an important therapeutic target for cognitive disorders associated with abnormal brain energy metabolism. Although insulin is transported across the blood-...

Mutual relationship between Tau and central insulin signalling: consequences for AD and Tauopathies ?

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder mainly characterized by cognitive deficits and neuropathological changes such as Tau lesions and amyloid plaques, but also associat...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Neoplasms of the intracranial components of the central nervous system, including the cerebral hemispheres, basal ganglia, hypothalamus, thalamus, brain stem, and cerebellum. Brain neoplasms are subdivided into primary (originating from brain tissue) and secondary (i.e., metastatic) forms. Primary neoplasms are subdivided into benign and malignant forms. In general, brain tumors may also be classified by age of onset, histologic type, or presenting location in the brain.

A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.

Neoplasms located in the brain ventricles, including the two lateral, the third, and the fourth ventricle. Ventricular tumors may be primary (e.g., CHOROID PLEXUS NEOPLASMS and GLIOMA, SUBEPENDYMAL), metastasize from distant organs, or occur as extensions of locally invasive tumors from adjacent brain structures.

A syndrome with excessively high INSULIN levels in the BLOOD. It may cause HYPOGLYCEMIA. Etiology of hyperinsulinism varies, including hypersecretion of a beta cell tumor (INSULINOMA); autoantibodies against insulin (INSULIN ANTIBODIES); defective insulin receptor (INSULIN RESISTANCE); or overuse of exogenous insulin or HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENTS.

Benign and malignant intra-axial tumors of the MESENCEPHALON; PONS; or MEDULLA OBLONGATA of the BRAIN STEM. Primary and metastatic neoplasms may occur in this location. Clinical features include ATAXIA, cranial neuropathies (see CRANIAL NERVE DISEASES), NAUSEA, hemiparesis (see HEMIPLEGIA), and quadriparesis. Primary brain stem neoplasms are more frequent in children. Histologic subtypes include GLIOMA; HEMANGIOBLASTOMA; GANGLIOGLIOMA; and EPENDYMOMA.
