Fox urine exposure induces avoidance behavior in rats and activates the amygdalar olfactory cortex
Behavioural Brain Research 279:76 (2015)We conclude that the AOC is critical for predator odor-induced fear behavior....
Sources of variation in the design of preclinical studies assessing the effects of amphetamine-type stimulants in pregnancy and lactation
Behavioural Brain Research 279:87 (2015)• This review illustrates the variation in the design of preclinical studies. • Focus on amphetamine-type stimulants taken during pregnancy in animal models....
Serotonin: From sensory processing to schizophrenia using an electrophysiological method
Behavioural Brain Research 277:121 (2015)• There are preclinical as well as clinical proofs that the LDAEP may serve as indicator of synaptically released serotonin. • LDAEP is closely related to serotonin in...
Serotonin in Parkinson's disease
Behavioural Brain Research 277:136 (2015)• There is a progressive, non-linear loss of serotonergic neurons in PD. • Serotonergic dysfunction is implicated in the development of tremor and LIDs....
Inflammatory markers are associated with inhibitory avoidance memory deficit induced by sleep deprivation in rats.
Sleep deprivation (SD) causes detrimental effects to the body, such as memory impairment and weight loss. SD also changes the concentration of inflammatory mediators such as cytokines, which, in turn, can affect cognitive functioning. Thus, the objective of this study was to investigate the involveme...
Functional brain asymmetry in adult novelty response: on fluidity of neonatal novelty exposure effects.
We show that repeated brief exposures to the novelty of a non-home environment during infancy and early adulthood lead to long-lasting changes in adulthood in the global bi-lateralization organization of the brain as indexed by a transiently detectable right-sided orientating bias upon the initial e...
Picture recognition in animals and humans.
Our survey will lead to the conclusion that humans show evidence of picture recognition from an early age; this recognition is, however, facilitated by prior exposure to pictures. This same exposure or training effect appears also to be necessary in nonhuman primates as well as in other mammals and...
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) improves the rest-activity rhythm in midstage Alzheimer's disease.
Nightly restlessness in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) is probably due to a disorder of circadian rhythms. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) was previously reported to increase the strength of coupling of the circadian rest activity rhythm to Zeitgebers in early stage Alzhei...
Effects of medial and lateral caudate-putamen lesions on place- and cue-guided behaviors in the water maze: relation to thigmotaxis.
Rats with dorsomedial or dorsolateral caudate-putamen lesions and sham-operated controls were trained on the standard hidden platform (place) task in the water maze. Compared to controls, rats with dorsomedial, but not dorsolateral lesions were slower to escape to the hidden platform and spent signi...
How skilled are the skilled limb movements of the raccoon (Procyon lotor)?
These results suggest that raccoons are like primates in that they display visual guidance of reaching, but are similar to other carnivores in that they do not use convergent grasping and digit manipulation and frequently use bimanual grasping. The results, consistent with a growing body of informat...
