Molecular Neuroendocrinology 2016 course



1 neuroanatomy: Anatomical and histological concepts of neuroendocrine in brain and peripheral circuits units. Hypothalamus-pituitary vascularization. Neuropeptides and their families; taquiquininas, hypothalamic hormones. Opioids peptides, NPY, ViP and peptides related, other neuropeptides (eg. Galanin, ghrelin).
2 axes neuroendocrine. Physiology and molecular pathology. Hormone releasing of adrenocorticotropic and shaft HPA, hormone releasing of hormone of growth, somatostatin and actions of the GH, hormone releasing luteinizing, gonadotrophins (LH / FSH), hormone releasing of thyrotropin and shaft thyroid, dopamine and prolactin.
3 hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Family of hormone releasing corticotropin (CRH). Receivers. Biology molecular and transduction of signals.
4. CRH in stress. Anxiety and depression. Pharmacology.
5 HPA in pituitary axis. Gen Pro-Opiomelanocortin. Transcriptional control of secretion. Tumors and Cushing's disease.
6. pituitary tumors. Molecular biology, oncogenesis.
7. glucocorticoids: receiver, mechanisms cellular and molecular of the regulation-transactivation and transrepression, interaction with other factors of transcription, cofactors,
8. communication between the immune and neuroendocrine-communication autocrina and paracrina-
