YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The studies on the influence of neuroactive compositions on the course of pathological processes conducted by Armenian neurochemists attracted the attention of the joint conference of the International Neurochemists Society and the US Neurochemists Society held recently Boston. The activities of the Institute of Biochemistry of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia aimed at studying neuroactive substances discovered by ANAS Academician Armen Galoyan in 1964 deserve special attention. Those substances are exuded from the brain in case of psychological diseases, myocarditis–inflamation of pancreas. Those activities are also aimed at studying the spectrum of neuroactive substances having a favorable effect on the immune system of human organism. The institute’s deputy director–Gevorg Gevorgian–referred to the emerging close cooperation between Armenian scientists and their colleagues in the United States and Canada–who are expected to visit Armenia this fall–as a positive result of the meeting.
