Latest Balapal Lab Research in Physiology & Behavior

New York – The latest research from the lab of Dr. Raj Balapal at the Center for Dementia Research is found in the pages of Physiology & Behavior. Dr. Balapal mentioned that his lab’s study suggests that inhibition of DNA methylation during early development causes neurodegeneration in neonatal animals that leads to deficits in synaptic plasticity and learning and memory in adult animals. The article, titled “A single day of 5-azacytidine exposure during development induces neurodegeneration in neonatal mice and neurobehavioral deficits in adult mice,” appears in the September 1 edition.
