  1. Corrigendum to “Accurate performance of a rat model of schizophrenia in the water maze depends on visual cue availability and stability: A d...

  2. Neural FoxP2 and FoxP1 expression in the budgerigar, an avian species with adult vocal learning.

    Behavioural Brain Research 283:22 (2015) PMID 25601574 PMCID PMC4351178

    We investigate FoxP2 and FoxP1 mRNA and protein in adult male budgerigars (Melopsittacus undulatus), a parrot species that exhibits vocal learning as both juveniles and adults. To examine these molecules in adult vocal learners, we compared their expression patterns in the budgerigar striatal nucleu...
  3. Revisiting the effect of nicotine on interval timing.

    Behavioural Brain Research 283:238 (2015) PMID 25637907 PMCID PMC4351175

    These results support a response-threshold account of nicotinic disruption of timing performance, possibly mediated by nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. A detailed analysis of the distribution of LTSs suggests that anomalous effects of nicotine on LTS dispersion may be due to loss of temporal contr...
  4. Astaxanthin improves behavioral disorder and oxidative stress in prenatal valproic acid-induced mice model of autism

    Behavioural Brain Research 286:112 (2015)

    • Higher oxidative stress was reported in autism in the past. • Astaxanthin was investigated in prenatal valproic acid-induced mice model of autism....
  5. Tipepidine increases dopamine level in the nucleus accumbens without methamphetamine-like behavioral sensitization

    Behavioural Brain Research 284:118 (2015)

    • Acute administration of tipepidine increased dopamine levels in the nucleus accumbens. • Tipepidine did not cause behavioral sensitization in rats....
  6. Chronic acarbose treatment alleviates age-related behavioral and biochemical changes in SAMP8 mice

    Behavioural Brain Research 284:138 (2015)

    • Test the sensorimotor ability, anxiety, spatial and non-spatial memory abilities. • Changes of protein level in serum and hippocampus relate to the behavioral defici...
  7. Novel object exploration in the C58/J mouse model of autistic-like behavior.

    Behavioural Brain Research 282:54 (2015) PMID 25532914

    We looked for evidence of higher-order repetitive behaviors in the C58/J strain using a novel object assay. This assay utilized a mouse's natural exploratory behavior among unfamiliar objects to identify potential sequencing patterns in motor activity. The motor stereotypies displayed by the C58/J s...
  8. NR2B antagonist CP-101,606 inhibits NR2B phosphorylation at tyrosine-1472 and its interactions with Fyn in levodopa-induced dyskinesia rat m...

    Behavioural Brain Research 282:46 (2015) PMID 25576965

    We determined abnormal involuntary movements (AIMs) in rats. The levels of NR2B phosphorylation at tyrosine-1472 (pNR2B-Tyr1472) and interactions of NR2B with Fyn in LID rat model were detected by immunoblotting and immunoprecipitation. Results showed that CP-101,606 attenuated l-dopa-induced AIMs....
  9. A comparison of brain volume and cortical thickness in excoriation (skin picking) disorder and trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder) in w...

    Behavioural Brain Research 279:255 (2015) PMID 25435313

    Skin picking disorder (SPD) and trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder, or HPD) significantly overlap in terms of clinical features. However, few studies have directly compared structural brain data in these disorders. The aim of this study was to compare volumes of brain structures and cortical th...
  10. Resurgence of sucrose and cocaine seeking in free-feeding rats.

    Behavioural Brain Research 279:47 (2015) PMID 25446761 PMCID PMC4277906

    Resurgence is relapse of an extinguished operant response following the removal of alternative reinforcement. In animal models of resurgence to date, rats have been food deprived and food is used as the source of alternative reinforcement. Thus, when the alternative reinforcer is removed, the only r...
