Biological Activity for CCMI

CCMI is a positive allosteric modulator of α7 neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR). Evokes positive modulation of acetylcholine (ACh)-induced EC5 currents (EC50 = 0.7 μM). Exhibits cognitive-enhancing properties in rodent models; displays no cytotoxic effects in PC12 cells or rat primary cortical neurons.

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.
