Quinolinic acid is associated with cognitive deficits in schizophrenia but not major depressive disorder.

Sci Rep 2021 May 11;11(1):9992. Epub 2021 May 11.

Division of Adult Psychiatry, Department of Psychiatry, Geneva University Hospitals, Chemin du Petit-Bel-Air, 1225, Chêne-Bourg, Switzerland.

Tryptophan and its catabolites (TRYCATs) have been suggested to link peripheral immune system activation and central neurotransmitter abnormalities with relevance to the etio-pathophysiology of schizophrenia (SZ) and major depressive disorder (MDD). The relationship to different psychopathological dimensions within these disorders however remains to be elucidated. We thus investigated potential group differences of tryptophan, kynurenine, kynurenic acid, 3-hydroxy kynurenine and quinolinic acid in the plasma of 19 healthy controls (HC), 45 patients with SZ and 43 patients with MDD and correlated plasma proteins with the "motivation and pleasure" dimension and cognition.

Responsive manipulation of neural circuit pathology by fully implantable, front-end multiplexed embedded neuroelectronics.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2021 May;118(20)

Department of Electrical Engineering, Columbia University, New York, NY 10027;

Responsive neurostimulation is increasingly required to probe neural circuit function and treat neuropsychiatric disorders. We introduce a multiplex-then-amplify (MTA) scheme that, in contrast to current approaches (which necessitate an equal number of amplifiers as number of channels), only requires one amplifier per multiplexer, significantly reducing the number of components and the size of electronics in multichannel acquisition systems. It also enables simultaneous stimulation of arbitrary waveforms on multiple independent channels. Read More

Wild-type α-synuclein inherits the structure and exacerbated neuropathology of E46K mutant fibril strain by cross-seeding.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2021 May;118(20)

Interdisciplinary Research Center on Biology and Chemistry, Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai, 201210, China;

Heterozygous point mutations of α-synuclein (α-syn) have been linked to the early onset and rapid progression of familial Parkinson's diseases (fPD). However, the interplay between hereditary mutant and wild-type (WT) α-syn and its role in the exacerbated pathology of α-syn in fPD progression are poorly understood. Here, we find that WT mice inoculated with the human E46K mutant α-syn fibril (hE46K) strain develop early-onset motor deficit and morphologically different α-syn aggregation compared with those inoculated with the human WT fibril (hWT) strain.

Strategies and cognitive reserve to preserve lexical production in aging.

Geroscience 2021 May 10. Epub 2021 May 10.

Leenaards Memory Centre, University Hospital of Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland.

In the absence of any neuropsychiatric condition, older adults may show declining performance in several cognitive processes and among them, in retrieving and producing words, reflected in slower responses and even reduced accuracy compared to younger adults. To overcome this difficulty, healthy older adults implement compensatory strategies, which are the focus of this paper. We provide a review of mainstream findings on deficient mechanisms and possible neurocognitive strategies used by older adults to overcome the deleterious effects of age on lexical production.
