    The Alzheimer's field can seem like the blind men of the legend trying to describe an elephant by the first part they touch. The amyloid plaque has been inevitably the first part recognized by the newcomers to the Alzheimer's field. Nevertheless, looking at the longitudinal changes of the human brain, there are other age-associated pathologies prior to amyloid depositions that can equally cause age-related dementia. Indeed, a more holistic approach is needed to understand Alzheimer's. Here we offer three possibilities, namely DNA damage, cell cycle dysregulation and myelin degradation, as the examples of how amyloid-independent mechanisms could cause age-associated dementia.

  4. Ghrelin receptors mediate ghrelin-induced excitation of agouti-related protein/neuropeptide Y but not pro-opiomelanocortin neurons

    Ghrelin increases food intake and body weight by stimulating orexigenic AgRP/NPY neurons and inhibiting anorexic POMC neurons in the hypothalamus. The authors showed that although ghrelin excites AgRP/NPY neurons through ghrelin receptors, it also stimulates POMC neurons independent of ghrelin receptors. Thus, ghrelin stimulates AgRP/NPY and POMC neurons through distinct signaling mechanisms.
