Play • 48 min

What Is Nuclear Factor Kappa B (NF-κB) Doing in and to the Mitochondrion? Evidence for the Involvement of TNF and NF-kB in Hippocampal Synaptic Plasticity, NF-κB p50 subunit knockout impairs late LTP and alters long term memory in the mouse hippocampus, Early Growth Response 2 (Egr-2) Expression is Triggered by NF-κB Activation, and Chronic dietary creatine enhances hippocampaldependent spatial memory, bioenergetics, and levels of plasticity-related proteins associated with NF-κB   

Scientific Sense ® by Gill Eapen: Prof. Benedict C. Albensi is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the co-director of the BRAIN Center at Nova SouthEastern University. His research interests include factors involved in ageing, cognition, and Alzheimer's disease (AD), such as nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB), a mediator of inflammation but also a required molecule for memory.
