In fact, the increase in BDNF mRNA levels could be linked to the activation of NF-[kappa]B and CREB (89).
The low BDNF levels resulted in reduced BDNF signaling, as evidenced by decreased levels of the phosphorylated forms of CREB and another regulatory molecule (Pandey et al.

Learning in healthcare settings is often impaired by the effects of stress and the concomitant high compensatory glucocorticoid secretion, increased production of PP1, and decreased CREB protein activation and LTP.

In turn, CREB is a molecule that controls the activation of genes involved in the functioning of our brains, including those that cause the production of dopamine.
Phosphorylated CREB (pCREB) then recruits another transcriptional co-factor called CREB-binding protein (CBP), which contains intrinsic HAT activity.
