Özet

Aim: Cannabinoid system has various physiological roles such as neurogenesis, synaptic plasticity and emotional state regulation in the body. The presence of cannabinoid type 2 receptor (CB2), a member of the cannabinoid system, was detected in different regions of the brain. CB2 receptor plays a role in neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative processes. We aimed to determine the possible effect of CB2 agonist JWH-133 in Okadaic acid (OKA)-induced neurodegeneration model mimicking Alzheimer's Disease (AD) through tau pathology.
