This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, or NMOSD, is a rare auto-immune demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Now considered a separate disorder from multiple sclerosis, NMOSD can be severely disabling and life-threatening, with a reported mortality of between 7 and 32%. The hallmark of the disease is recurrent attacks of optic neuritis and/or transverse myelitis that result in accumulating, irreversible disability, including blindness and paraplegia. Approximately 75 to 90% of patients with NMOSD have a disease-specific, pathogenic IgG autoantibody against the aquaporin-4 water channel, or AQP4. This antibody is thought to bind to AQP4 on astrocyte foot processes at the blood-brain barrier. This causes damage to astrocytes and the blood-brain barrier itself through several mechanisms, including the formation of the membrane attack complex through activation of the complement component C5b9..."

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"NTRK, ROS1, and ALK gene fusions are recognised oncodrivers in many cancers. Oncogenic fusions result in constitutively active tyrosine kinases and downstream activation of pathways associated with tumour growth, survival, and proliferation. NTRK fusions, for example, are found in both adult and paediatric cancers and are extremely common in some rare cancers. All three fusion types are found in non–small cell lung cancer. At diagnosis, many patients with NTRK-fusion-positive solid tumours, including NTRK-positive non–small cell lung cancer, or with ROS1-positive non–small cell lung cancer also have brain metastases. These metastases are linked to a worse prognosis. Although effective drugs exist for both NTRK-positive solid tumours and ROS1-positive non–small cell lung cancer, most don’t penetrate the CNS well enough to treat brain metastases. Entrectinib, an orally active small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor that selectively inhibits TRK, ROS1 and ALK, acts in both the periphery and the CNS..."

Psychopharmacology

0.0 stars

Psychopharmacology is the study of how drugs affect behavior. If a drug changes your perception, or the way you feel or think, the drug exerts effects on your brain and nervous system. We call drugs that change the way you think or feel psychoactive or psychotropic drugs, and almost everyone has used a psychoactive drug at some point (yes, caffeine counts). Understanding some of the basics about psychopharmacology can help us better understand a wide range of things that interest psychologists and others. For example, the pharmacological treatment of certain neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease tells us something about the disease itself. The pharmacological treatments used to treat psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia or depression have undergone amazing development since the 1950s, and the drugs used to treat these disorders tell us something about what is happening in the brain of individuals with these conditions. Finally, understanding something about the actions of drugs of abuse and their routes of administration can help us understand why some psychoactive drugs are so addictive. In this module, we will provide an overview of some of these topics as well as discuss some current controversial areas in the field of psychopharmacology.
