BDNF plays an important role in neural plasticity and numerous studies have demonstrated its influence on brain development and cognitive processes. There are two mBDNF forms of BDNF, which are detectable in the brain: precursor BDNF (proBDNF) and mature BDNF (mBDNF). The studies of proBDNF have indicated its role in synaptic efficiency as well as in the processes related to the acquisition and expiration of memories.
