Department of Biological Sciences for Intractable Neurological Diseases
We aim to develop new methods of treatment from basic research, understanding the clinical pathological conditions and development of novel therapeutic approaches, based on 2 main areas of research: deposition of misfolded proteins including amyloid proteins, which is the cause of intractable neurological diseases, and faults in the nerve synapse function, in collaboration with medical, agricultural, and engineering researchers.
- 1. Electron microscopic view on post synoptic density (PSD).
- 2. Distribution of Neuroligins (NLs) on the surface of the dendritic spine.
- 3. Amyloid deposits in the tongue of mouse by Congo red staining under polarized light.
