PMCAs are fundamental for termination of Ca2+ signaling processes in many types of cells. Schmidt et al. identify Neuroplastin and Basigin as novel subunits of native PMCAs and illustrate the significance of both proteins for processing and function of PMCA complexes.… Read More...

To estimate a regional progression pattern of amyloid deposition from cross-sectional amyloid-sensitive PET data and evaluate its potential for in vivo staging of an individual’s amyloid pathology.


Multiregional analysis of florbetapir (18F-AV45)–PET data was used to determine individual amyloid distribution profiles in a sample of 667 participants from the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative cohort, including cognitively normal older individuals (CN) as well as patients with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer disease (AD) dementia.… Read More...

Objective: We tested the hypothesis that somatosensory system injury would more strongly affect movement than motor system injury in children with unilateral cerebral palsy (USCP). This hypothesis was based on how somatosensory and corticospinal circuits adapt to injury during development: while the motor system can maintain connections to the impaired hand from the uninjured hemisphere, this doesn’t occur in the somatosensory system.
