Nanotoxicity of fine particulate matter

  • Metal oxide nanoparticles includes:
    • silicon dioxide
    • titanium dioxide
    • aluminium oxide
    • barium oxide
    • iron oxide
    • cadmium
    • arsenic
    • dimethyl sulfate and monomethyl sulfate[1]
  • Exposure to metal oxide NPs is nanotoxic and may cause neuroinflammation via oxidative stress. [2]
  • Coal fly ash is a source of metal oxide NPs.
  • Fine particulate matter may induce chronic COPD pathogenesis.[3]

Microglial activation

  • Activation of the microglia by aluminium nanoparticles disrupt the cytokine/neurotrophin balance.
  • Possible role of microglia-derived BDNF signaling on intracellular Ca2+ elevation? [4]

Synaptic hypercomputation

Biological utilization of quantum nonlocality:

Phase coherence of synaptic hypercomputation

Retrograde signaling and synaptogenesis regulate phase coherence (latency) of presynaptic action potential?

Retrograde signaling

Glycinergic transmission trafficking

Allosteric modulation of glycine receptors by endocannabinoids

  • THC and anandamide may modulates synaptogenesis in the retina and brain through glycinergic transmission [5]
  • Intracellular DHA delivery facilitate glutamatergic NMDA receptor function in the presence of glycine [6]
  • THC and anandamide enhance NMDA-dependent LTP through glycine receptor activation

CB1-induced cholinergic neurotransmission

  • Hypothalamic POMC neurons promote CB1-induced feeding [7]
  • Caffeine potentiate striatal neurotransmission through presynaptic CB1 receptor activation. [8]
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibition affects cannabinoid-induced synaptogenesis. [9]

intracellular CB1/BDNF signaling

  • CB1 receptor activation induce striatal neuroprotection through a PI3K/Akt/mTORC1/BDNF pathway. [10]
