About this Research Topic
Learning and memory functions as well as many neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, drug addiction and schizophrenia are caused by dysregulation of cell signaling mechanisms in the brain.
This issue of Frontiers will provide evidence for signal transduction alterations implicated in cognitive and non cognitive behaviors, as investigated by means of pharmacological and genetic approaches. Specialists in the field will be encouraged to contribute articles covering the impact on behavior of manipulations of neurotransmitter systems, intracellular signaling cascades and gene expression.
