New paper accepted in Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience

The review article “Molecular correlates of mitochondrial dysfunctions in major depression: evidence from clinical and rodent studies” by Virginie Rappeneau, Lars Wilmes and Chadi Touma has been accepted for publication in Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience. It provides a critical overview of important molecular correlates of mitochondrial dysfunction (i.e. mitochondrial biogenesis, oxidative stress, oxidative damages and apoptosis) in major depression based on findings from clinical studies and stress-induced rodent models.

New paper published in Stress

The review article “Experience and activity-dependent control of glucocorticoid receptors during the stress response in large-scale brain networks” by Damien Huzard, Virginie Rappeneau, Onno C Meijer, Chadi Touma, Margarita Arango-Lievano, Michael J Garabedian and Freddy Jeanneteau has been recently published in the journal “Stress”. It summarizes the diverse mechanisms modulating glucocorticoid receptor activity at the molecular and cellular level.
