Institut de Neurociències (INc)

L'any 2003 un grup de biòlegs moleculars, fisiòlegs, neuropatòlegs, històlegs, psicòlegs, psicobiòlegs i bioinformàtics que treballen a la UAB van crear el INc amb l'objectiu estratègic de deixar enrere les disciplines tradicionals, i abordar de manera multidisciplinària i translacional qüestions claus del cervell al segle XXI com són la neurodegeneració, la neuroregeneració i les bases de la ment normal o trasbalsada. Ens interessa com funciona el cervell normal, què passa quan esdevé malalt, i com es cura. Explorem tots els nivells de l'organització biològica des de la interacció de molècules al comportament fent servir per a això cultius cel·lulars, models animals i pacients. El nostre objectiu final és desenvolupar noves teràpies cel·lulars, moleculars, i genètiques pel tractament de patologies cerebrals.

Transient receptor potential cation channels are emerging as important physiological and therapeutic targets. Within the vanilloid subfamily, transient receptor potential vanilloid 2 (TRPV2) and 4 (TRPV4) are osmo-and mechanosensors becoming critical determinants in cell structure and activity. [...]

36 p, 1.9 MB Time course study of long-term biocompatibility and foreign body reaction to intraneural polyimide-based implants / de la Oliva, Natàlia (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Neurociències) ; Navarro, Xavier. (Xavier) (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Neurociències) ; Del Valle, Jaume (Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia)
The foreign body reaction (FBR) against an implanted device is characterized by the formation of a fibrotic tissue around the implant. In the case of interfaces for peripheral nerves, used to stimulate specific group of axons and to record different nerve signals, the FBR induces a matrix deposition around the implant creating a physical separation between nerve fibers and the interface that may reduce its functionality over time. [...]

26 p, 1.4 MB Dexamethasone Reduces the Foreign Body Reaction to Intraneural Electrode Implants in the Peripheral Nerve of the Rat / de la Oliva, Natàlia (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Neurociències) ; Navarro, Xavier. (Xavier) (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Neurociències) ; Del Valle, Jaume (Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia)
Intraneural electrodes must be in intimate contact with nerve fibers to have a proper function, but this interface is compromised due to the foreign body reaction (FBR). The FBR is characterized by a first inflammatory phase followed by a second anti-inflammatory and fibrotic phase, which results in the formation of a tissue capsule around the implant, causing physical separation between the active sites of the electrode and the nerve fibers.
