A VERY EXCITING COLLABORATION

September 21, 2020

In collaboration with Davide de Pietri Tonelli's lab at IIT, we show in a new preprint that a new small RNA-mediated pathway in neural stem cells sustains adult neurogenesis by inhibiting protein synthesis

EARLY LIFE STRESS DECREASES THE PROLIFERATION AND NUMBERS OF ADULT HYPOTHALAMIC NEURAL STEM CELLS.

November 5, 2019

Our new article describing for the first time the effects of early life stress on hypothalamic neural stem cells is now freely available on bioRxiv, have a look!

OUR ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN MOLECULAR PSYCHIATRY

June 2019

A decrease in adult hippocampal neurogenesis has been linked to age-related cognitive impairment. However, the mechanisms involved in this age-related reduction remain elusive.  Here, we show that circadian oscillations in glucocorticoid hormones prevent neural stem cell activation and preserve a quiescent neural stem pool in the aging hippocampus that contributes to a neuroplasticity reserve in the aging brain.
