Here at Troscriptions, we are big fans of all things GABA and have already published an in-depth guide that you can read here. However, if you don’t have time to read the whole guide, here is a quick summary: GABA stands for gamma-aminobutyric acid (which is an amino acid) and is arguably the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in our brain. When we talk about the GABAergic function, we are referring to the relaxation effects that happen through GABA and its receptors in the brain.

Every day an American is potentially exposed to more than 80,000 toxic chemicals, yet their impact on neuro-diseases is not well understood. Studies have shown that exposure to toxic chemicals in the early stages of life could have permanent consequences for neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration in later life. With advanced research in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, it is now clear that genetic risk factors cannot fully explain them.

Dendritogenesis! You need it. You want it. Let's go!
Mar 09, 2023
Dendrites are the branching extensions of a neuron that receive signals from other neurons and transmit them to the cell body [4,5]. Dendrites derive their name from the Greek word for “tree,” as they are branching extensions of nerve cells that transmit electrical and chemical signals from other neurons to the neuron's cell body [5].

Have you ever wondered how your body clears cellular waste? Where do our millions of cells dump their garbage? The answer to this question is relatively simple: outside of your brain, all the cells of your body pour their harmful metabolic waste, proteins, and other dissolved substances into the lymphatic system. Just
Synaptogenesis Plasticity
Feb 01, 2023
Acquiring new knowledge is beneficial for the brain, but not all types of learning can lead to the formation of new synapses. To foster the formation of new synapses, it is important to challenge the brain to coordinate and perform complex movements in conjunction with a specific task [38]. This could be acrobatic training, for example. Engaging in motor learning, such as learning a new technique in table tennis or juggling, can also lead to the formation of new synapses that help to improve that skill [39]. A study found that adult rats trained in complex acrobatic movements developed new synapses, while rats assigned to physical exercise or no activity did not [40]. The study also revealed no significant difference in the density of synapses between the group of rats that exercised and the group that did not, indicating that exercise alone may not be sufficient to promote the formation of new synapses [40].
