Abstract:

Novel aspects of nuclear receptors and their function in brain were discussed at a recent Symposium in Oegstgeest, The Netherlands. Presentations covered the diversity of these receptors, their target genes, proteins involved in transcriptional regulation, functional consequences of nuclear receptor activation and their relevance for human pathology. By elucidating the signalling pathway of nuclear receptors in brain, potential targets for therapeutic treatment of brain disorders can be identified.
