Olson Lab Research Featured on the Cover of ACS Chemical Neuroscience
In a recent publication, the Olson Lab used a variety of chemical tools to demonstrate that the marine natural product bryostatin 1 increases synaptogenesis while simultaneously reducing the number of protrusions that harbor synapses. This unique effect has the potential to improve signal-to-noise ratio in the central nervous system and could possible explain why the natural product improves memory. Bryostatin 1 is currently being investigated for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
