Special Issue 'Neurotransmitters and Alzheimer’s Disease' in Journal of Alzheimer’s
P. Hemachandra Reddy, Ph.D., will be bringing a special issue entitled ‘Neurotransmitters
and Alzheimer’s Disease’ as a guest editor in Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. The purpose of this special issue is to assess the recent developments in neurotransmitters
research in order to improve our basic understanding of 1) neurotransmitters’ role
in normal and Alzheimer’s disease states, 2) effect of oxidative insults and aging
in causing abnormalities in neurotransmitters and synaptic damage, 3) amyloid beta
and phosphorylated tau accumulations at synapses in causing abnormalities in neurotransmitters
and synaptic damage, 4) development of therapeutic drugs that may enhance synaptic
activity, neuronal function in AD neurons and 5) current status of pre-clinical and
clinical trials using therapeutic drugs related to neurotransmitters in Alzheimer’s
disease. This special issue will provide timely resources for students, clinical/basic
science researchers, and Alzheimer’s disease patients and their families. The dates
of submission will be open now until August 2016. If interested to submit an article
for this special issue – please contact P. Hemachandra Reddy, Ph.D., – Hemachandra.firstname.lastname@example.org
