Immunity and Neurodegeneration PIA: Roles of the adaptive immune system in neurodegenerative disorders.

April 14, 2022
The CNS barrier tissues are densely populated by adaptive immune cells that are in a constant crosstalk with neurons and glia. Recent evidence highlights the important roles of this neuroimmune communication in numerous neurodegenerative diseases.

Neuromodulatory Subcortical Systems PIA: Understanding the biological contributions to the magnetic resonance imaging-contrast of catecholaminergic nuclei

March 28, 2022
MRI scans of catecholaminergic nuclei differ between Alzheimer’s patients and controls. However, we lack a full understanding of the underlying mechanism. We discuss biological correlates of the MRI contrast to help interpreting differences in AD.
