Ermine CM, Wright JL, Frausin S, Kauhausen JA, Parish CL, Stanic D, Thompson LH (2018) Modelling the dopamine and noradrenergic cell loss that occurs in Parkinson’s disease and the impact on hippocampal neurogenesis. Hippocampus 28(5):327-337. doi: 10.1002/hipo.22835
Objective: The mechanisms underlying reduced neurogenesis in Parkinson’s Disease (PD) are not well established. The authors tested the hypothesis that noradrenergic and dopaminergic depletion, as occurs in PD, impairs hippocampal neurogenesis.
Summary: Mechanisms of neurotransmitter-based regulation of cognition and hippocampal neurogenesis may well overlap under certain conditions but the present results do not suggest a simple relationship associated with the degeneration of the two most prominently affected transmitter systems in PD.
