WELCOME TO COGNITO

NOVEL TREATMENTS OF COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION

About the Cognito Project

The involved partners have a strong background in combining basic neuroscience, industrial drug-discovery, molecular brain imaging, biomarker discovery and clinical research. In this project we will take advantage of this translational approach and investigate the effects of α7nAChR positive modulators using human neuronal extracts, porcine/human stem cells, novel translational animal models, and transgenic animals. We will also screen for the presence, sequence, and copy number of the dominant negative CHRFAM7A gene in well-defined patient populations with cognitive disturbances. We will determine how synthetic amyloids and extracts of CSF samples from individual patients with dementia interact with the receptor.
