Regulation of brain autophagy by BDNF signaling and nutritional stress

Regulation of brain autophagy by BDNF signaling and nutritional stress

Research by the team of Prof. Nektarios Tavernarakis reveals how nutritional stress affects memory and learning by differentially modulating autophagic degradation in different brain areas and identifies the neurotrophic factor BDNF as a novel regulator of autophagy in the brain.
