  • The effect of methamphetamine on subventricular zone neurogenesis: Cell death, proliferation and differentiation

    Methamphetamine (METH) is a potent and widely consumed psychostimulant which causes brain functional and structural abnormalities. However, little is known about the effect of METH on adult neurogenic niches and its consequences on the subventricular zone (SVZ). Thus, this work aims to disclose the effects of METH on SVZ neurogenesis. SVZ neurospheres were cultured from early postnatal mice and subjected to increasing concentrations of METH (1 μM to 500 μM). After 24 hours of exposure to METH cell death was triggered by both necrosis and apoptosis. METH exerted toxic effects on stem/progenitor cells expressing SOX2, but not on doublecortin-labeled neuroblasts. METH decreased BrdU incorporation in SVZ cell cultures. Furthermore, METH decreased the number of NeuN-positive neurons, as well as P-JNK-positive growing axons. Altogether, our data demonstrate that METH is toxic to SVZ cells and reduces neuronal differentiation and maturation at non toxic concentrations.

  • PDMS stretchable platforms for the studies of mechanical compression on neurogenesis

    The use of MEMS to study the effect of mechanical compression on neurogenesis has been demonstrated. Polydimethylsiloxane-(PDMS)-based stretchable platforms were used on neurosphere assay to investigate the role of mechanical forces on the formation of radial glial processes, neuronal generation and migration. To induce mechanical compression on neurospheres, The PDMS culturing substrate is patterned with micron-sized wells. Neurospheres are cultured on the prestretched device. After 48 hours, when neurospheres are grown to the size of the well's width, the stretched substrate is released. The experimental results showed that applied mechanical compression on neural stem cells cultured as neurospheres could be a factor accelerating the radial glial formation, which is associated to neurogenesis and neuronal migration.

  • MEMS platform for studying neurogenesis under controlled mechanical tension

    A suitable platform has been introduced to exert mechanical tension along radial glial processes between groups of neural stem cells to study the effect of tension on cerebral cortex neurogenesis. Two improvements were implemented in the clamp-and-ratchet microstructure design based on polycrystalline silicon (polysilicon) micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology. Finite Element Analysis shows that these new designs are well within fracture limits under expected tension loading. Stretching the PDMS using the clamp- and-ratchet will produce various precise tensions in these radial extensions, which may modulate neuronal migration, a key process in neurogenesis.

  • Neurogenesis Enhances Response Specificity to Spatial Pattern Stimulation in Hippocampal Cultures

    Objective: Adult neurogenesis in the hippocampus facilitates cognitive functions such as pattern separation in mammals. However, it remains unclear how newborn neurons mediate changes in neural networks to enhance the pattern separation ability. Here, we developed an in vitro model of adult neurogenesis using rat hippocampal cultures in order to investigate whether newborn neurons can be directly incorporated into neural networks related to pattern separation to produce functional improvements. Method: We optimized at schedule of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) administration to enhance neurogenesis, and then used a microelectrode array system to evaluate the responses of neural cultures to two different spatial pattern stimuli (L and inverted L shapes) before and after training. Results: We found that early synaptic response times to a given pattern were shortened after training, and that this effect was more pronounced in cultures treated with bFGF. Furthermore, bFGF-treated cultures showed improved response specificity after training as indicated by calculated Kullback-Leibler divergence values, suggesting that pattern separation was better achieved in cultures with enhanced neurogenesis. Conclusion: Neural networks containing greater numbers of immature neurons exhibited higher response specificity to spatial pattern stimulation, suggesting the improvement of the pattern separation by neurogenesis enhancement. Significance: These results are the first in vitro demonstration that neurogenesis improves pattern separation. Our novel in vitro system will be a useful tool for investigating the contribution of adult neurogenesis to cognitive functions.

  • Microscale biomechanics: Studies of Neurogenesis and Stem Cell Differentiation under Micromechanical Influences

    Two types of stem cells, one from neonatal rat brains and the other from hydra body columns, are being studied with quantified mechanical stimulations. MEMS polysilicon clamp and ratchet microstructure has been designed to exert mechanical tension along radial glial processes between groups of neural stem cells to study the effect of tension on cerebral cortex neurogenesis. Preliminary studies show that embryonic brain tissue survives under tension for at least six days. Neurospheres have been successfully cultured on poly- dimethyl-siloxane (PDMS) substrate for eight days and exhibit radial extensions which appear to support neuronal migration. Stretching the PDMS using the clamp and ratchet would produce tension in these radial extensions which may modulate neuronal migration, a key process in cerebral cortex development. To study the responses of hydra stem cells to mechanical stimuli, a 6-foot water column is constructed to observe hydra regeneration, and thus stem cell differentiation, under various levels of static pressure. Several dissected hydras were injected into a PDMS trap and then lowered into the water column at specific depths. There appears a connection between the level of environmental pressure, available resources, and the ability of the hydra to regenerate. The preliminary results from these two diverse types of stem cells support the hypothesis that mechanical stimulations are important factors that influence stem cell fates

  • Novel Pluripotent Adult Stem Cell Source for Neurogenesis

    A novel pluripotent stem cell population discovered by our laboratory, periodontal ligament stem cells (PDLSCs) are a viable source for regenerative medicine. We have demonstrated that these cells form all three germ layers in- vivo, and hypothesized that PDLSCs would be an ideal cell source for neurogenesis in-vitro. In our study, we evaluate the potential of Connexin 43+ PDLSCs to differentiate into a neural lineage. Control Connexin 43+ PDLSCs were cultured in complete culture media. Neuro-induced Connexin 43+PDLSCs were grown in a neurogenic cocktail media. Media was changed every three days for a total of 6 days of treatment. Following treatment, cell morphology, gene expression, and immunohistochemistry were evaluated. Gene expression data was analyzed using a two-tailed t-test, with p<;0.05 considered significant. Morphological differences were evident in neuro-induced Connexin 43+ PDLSCs, along with a significant increase in gene expression of neuro filament medium over control samples. Immunohistochemical staining in neuro-induced Connexin 43+ PDLSCs demonstrated neurite-like processes and synaptophysin not found in control samples. Conclusion: Our neuro-induction protocol successfully induces Connexin 43+ PDLSCs to a neural lineage.

  • Genetic analysis of BDNF expression cliques and adult neurogenesis in the hippocampus

    The subgranular zone of the dentate gyrus of sexually mature mice contains a highly variable number of pluripotent stem cells that produce a stream of intermediate progenitors which give rise to neurons and glial cells. Genetic factors, age, and the environment control variation in the fate and rate of neurogenesis. Discovery of stem cells in the adult CNS has catalyzed wide- ranging research into the molecular control of regeneration and repair. In recent work we have explored the genetic basis of variation in adult neurogenesis in C57BL/6J (B), DBA/2J (D) and the BXD family of inbred mice [1]. Here we exploit expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) mapping and advanced graph theoretical algorithms to extract and analyze small sets of genes-so-called cliques and paracliques-that have tightly coupled expression with brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Isoforms of BDNF are key modulators of neuronal proliferation, dendritic plasticity, and also influence disease susceptibility. Two independent BDNF cliques that are associated with all Bdnf transcripts or dendritic transcripts were studied using gene ontology analysis, direct literature analysis, and eQTL mapping methods. We show that these two Bdnf cliques are modulated by gene variants located on distal Chr 1 (the Fmn2/Qrr1 region) and proximal Chr 19 near Prune2. Prune2, which controls the clique primarily associated with total Bdnf expression, is a novel adult neurogenesis candidate gene with proapoptotic function that has recently been linked to Alzheimer's disease.

  • Development of a MEMS microsystem to study the effect of mechanical tension on cerebral cortex neurogenesis

    A clamp-and-ratchet microstructure based on poly crystalline silicon (polysilicon) microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology has been designed to exert mechanical tension along radial glial processes between groups of neural stem cells to study the effect of tension on cerebral cortex neurogenesis. FEA analysis shows that the design should not fail under expected loading conditions. Preliminary studies show that embryonic brain tissue survives under tension for at least six days. Neurospheres have been successfully cultured on Poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) for eight days and exhibit radial extensions which appear to support neuronal migration. Stretching the PDMS using the clamp and ratchet will produce tension in these radial extensions which may modulate neuronal migration, a key process in cerebral cortex development.

  • Novel Computational Apoptosis-Neurogenesis Model for Multi-Abstraction Level Perception

    Artificial neural network provides a cybernetic model that is similar to human intelligence in terms of parallel processing, generalization and memory stacking on the same neural network. From the era of neurogenesis, research models expect the rules that govern new neuron to depend on old mature circuitry. Other research models show the existence of catastrophic interference associated with new neurons if species is exposed to variable information content environment. In this work, the model developed provides a theoretical framework for a novel attention sensitive neural network as well as an experimental framework revealing the addition of new neuron can be prevented from catastrophic interference phenomena if it undergoes certain structural processes in human brain.

  • Neurogenesis of respiratory rhythm: a computational study
