Positive allosteric modulator of α7 nAChRs (EC50 ~0.3 μM); active enantiomer. Increases potency of acetylcholine (EC50 values are 0.007 mM and 0.3 mM in the presence and absence of B 937B, respectively). Potentiates peak acetylcholine-induced currents 6-fold relative to maximal acetylcholine, and slows channel desensitization, resulting in a 6900-fold increase in charge transfer. Decreases paw edema in vivo. Analgesic.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia, affecting approximately 47 million people worldwide. Updated in 2015, this poster summarizes the structural and functional changes observed in the progression of this neurodegenerative disease, as well as classic AD drug targets.
Learning & Memory Poster
Recognition memory enables us to make judgements about whether or not we have encountered a particular stimulus before. This poster outlines the cellular mechanisms underlying recognition memory and its links to long-term depression, as well as the use of pharmacological intervention to assess the role of neurotransmitters in recognition memory.
Peripheral sensitization is the reduction in the threshold of excitability of sensory neurons that results in an augmented response to a given external stimulus. This poster outlines the excitatory and inhibitory signaling pathways involved in modulation of peripheral sensitization. The role of ion channels, GPCRs, neurotrophins, and cytokines in sensory neurons are also described.
