Task Low Dose Ionizing Radiation and HZE Particle Effects on Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis: A Sensitive Indicator of CNS Microenvironmental Changes (Completed)
Last Published:  07/31/19 10:05:33 AM (Central)
Short Title: Hippocampal
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Department of Energy (DoE)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):

We have profiled gene expression patterns in the dentate gyrus and find significant effects at even the lowest doses tested (3 cGy). Further analysis of our extensive microarray data is underway to better understand the microenvironmental changes elicited by radiation that influence neuronal cell genesis and survival.
