A clusterization approach allows researchers to analyze dendritic spines in new ways.
SETD1A, a gene associated with schizophrenia, stunts the growth and branching of dendrites and reduces the number of dendritic spines. Reinstating the normal expression of SETD1A in mouse models restored working memory function.
Chronic stress during pregnancy increases neuroinflammation. The immune changes may create circumstances in the brain, which increase susceptibility to postnatal depression.
The formation of prefrontal cortex dendritic spine formation sustains the remission of depressive related symptoms and behaviors following ketamine treatment by restoring lost spines.

Researchers have identified the role Klf9 plays in the brain's response to stress. The study reports elevated levels of the protein were discovered in the hippocampus of women with MDD who faced stressful events.
According to researchers, the size, shape and number of dendritic spines in the brain may determine whether a person develops Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reveals psychedelic substances may have a neuroprotective role when it comes to inflammation. Researchers also report psychedelics can alter signaling pathways associated with neuroplasticity.
