Studies uncover link between immune system, #brainstructure and memory

Originally posted 2017-05-27 11:43:24.

The body’s immune system performs essential functions, such as defending against bacteria and cancer cells. However, the human brain is separated from immune cells in the bloodstream by the so-called blood-brain barrier. This barrier protects the brain from pathogens and toxins circulating in the blood, while also dividing the immune cells of the human body into those that fulfill their function in the blood and those that work specifically in the brain. Until recently, it was thought that brain function was largely unaffected by the peripheral immune system.

Brain cells may be able to call upon a professional organizer should they find themselves hoarding junk. This organizer, like the junk it clears away, works at the molecular scale, but its effects could be momentous. By getting rid of misfolded proteins, the organizer, called Nrf2, can prevent the accumulation of toxic clumps that lead to Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other neurological conditions.

Y eso no es beneficioso para la salud.
