Physical exercise modulates peripheral levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF): A systematic review of experimental studies in the elderly
The objective of this study was to conduct a systematic review of studies that analyzed the effect of physical exercise on the peripheral levels of BDNF in elderly individuals. Method: We conducted a search in PsycINFO, ...
Lithium increases plasma brain-derived neurotrophic factor in acute bipolar mania: A preliminary 4-week study
(ELSEVIER IRELAND LTD, 2011)
Several studies have suggested an important role for brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the pathophysiology and therapeutics of bipolar disorder (BPD). The mechanisms underlying the therapeutic effects of lithium ...
Circulating levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor: correlation with mood, cognition and motor function
(FUTURE MEDICINE LTD, 2010)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is the most widely distributed neurotrophin in the CNS, where it plays several pivotal roles in synaptic plasticity and neuronal survival. As a consequence, BDNF has become a key ...
Increased plasma levels of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) after multiple sclerosis relapse
(ELSEVIER IRELAND LTD, 2009)
Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) has been related to neuroprotection in a series of central nervous system diseases, although its role in multiple sclerosis (MS) was only partially investigated. In this work, we ...
Acute Aerobic Exercise Increases Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor Levels in Elderly with Alzheimer's Disease
(IOS Press, 2014-01-01)
Studies indicate the involvement of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Decreased BDNF levels may constitute a lack of trophic support and contribute to cognitive ...
