Brain cognitive reserve refers to the ability of the brain to manage different challenges that arise throughout life, making it resilient to neuropathology. Hippocampal adult neurogenesis has been a relevant contributor for brain cognitive reserve and brain plasticity. Coriolus versicolor (CV), a common healthful mushroom, has been receiving increasing attention by its antitumoral, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and immunomodulatory properties, including in the hippocampus.
In this 60 -minute webinar for healthcare practitioners (45 minutes of presentation followed by 15 minutes of questions) , Dr. Ferreiro will address:
a) The role of neurogenesis in neurodegenerative conditions.
b) The importance of reducing glucose metabolism in the context of Alzheimer´s disease.
c) The relationship between neurogenesis, synaptic and cognitive function.
d) The concept of brain cognitive reserve.
e) The discovery and importance of adult neurogenesis.
f) The four crucial steps in neurogenesis.
g) The importance of integration of newly-generated neurons.
h) The role of B-catenin in neurogenesis.
i) The potential role of mushroom nutrition in neurogenesis.
