Researchers have discovered that a molecule critical to the development and plasticity of nerve cells — brain-derived neurotrophic factor — is severely lacking in brainstem neurons in mutations leading to Rett syndrome, a neurological developmental disorder. The finding has implications for the treatment of neurological disorders, including Rett syndrome that affects one in 10,000 baby girls.

This article proposes that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is the main factor contributing to improved cognition following exercise. Additionally, it argues that cerebral blood flow (CBF) and oxidative stress explain the release of BDNF from Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) is a neurotrophin known to participate in chronic somatic pain. A recent study has indicated that BDNF may participate in chronic cystitis at the peripheral level. However, the principal site factor (BDNF) is one of the factors that support differentiation , maturation , and survival of neurons in the nervous system and shows a neuroprotective effect under adverse conditions, such as glutamatergic Tags: brain, derived, neurotrophic, factor, Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) – One factor that is particularly relevant to HD is factor (BDNF). BDNF levels are decreased in the brains of HD patients, which might be partly responsible the degenerative processes of HD.
