BDNF expression in cat striate cortex is regulated by binocular pattern deprivation

Karolina Laskowska-Macios/ Lutgarde Arckens/ Małgorzata Kossut/ Kalina Burnat

Deprivation of patterned visual information, as in early onset congenital cataract patients, results in a severe impairment in global motion perception. Previously we reported a delayed maturation of the peripheral visual field representation in primary visual area 17, based on a 2-D DIGE screen for protein expression changes and in situ hybridization for the activity reporter gene ZIF268. To corroborate these findings we here explore the binocular pattern deprivation (BD)-regulated expression o(..)

The differential effects of neuroleptic drugs and PACAP on the expression of BDNF mRNA and protein in a human glioblastoma cell line

Marta Jóźwiak-Bębenista/ Magdalena Jasińska-Stroschein/ Edward Kowalczyk

It has been suggested that, in addition to modulation of monoaminergic neurotransmission, antipsychotic drugs can also affect expression of neurotrophic factors in the brain. The present study was aimed to examine the effects of the first generation neuroleptic drug (FGA; haloperidol) and second generation neuroleptic drugs (SGAs; olanzapine and amisulpride) on expression and level of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in astrocyte-like T98G glioblastoma cell line. Effects of these drugs w(..)

Nucleus accumbens local field potential power spectrums, phase-amplitude couplings and coherences following morphine treatment

Chayaporn Reakkamnuan/ Dania Cheaha/ Ekkasit Kumarnsit

In the past decade, neural processing has been extensively studied in cognitive neuroscience. However, neural signaling in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) that might clarify reward process remained to be investigated. Male Swiss albino ICR mice implanted with intracranial electrodes into the NAc and the ventral tegmental area (VTA) were used for morphine administration and local field potential (LFP) recording. One-way ANOVA revealed significant increases in low (30.3–44.9 Hz) and high (60.5–95.7 Hz(..)

Assessment of type 1 and type 3 deiodinase expression levels in depressive disorders

Elżbieta Gałecka/ Anna Kumor-Kisielewska/ Agata Orzechowska/ Michael Maes/ Paweł Górski/ Janusz Szemraj

A depressive disorder is a disease characterized by a heterogenous background. The important processes observed and diagnosed in depressed patients indicate that the etiology of depression may include disturbances in thyroid hormone (TH) levels and the occurrence of immune-inflammatory activation. Type 1 (DIO1) and type 3 (DIO3) iodothyronine deiodinases are the enzymes which determine the peripheral and tissue levels of TH, but also interfere with immunological cells and inflammatory processes.(..)

Tiapride prevents the aversive but not the rewarding effect induced by parabrachial electrical stimulation in a place preference task

María M. Hurtado/ Raquel García/ Amadeo Puerto

The parabrachial complex has been related to the processing of both rewarding and aversive signals. This pontine area is activated after the gastrointestinal administration of rewarding nutrients, in taste aversion learning, and in response to the reinforcing and aversive effects of some drugs of abuse. Electrical stimulation of this region can induce, in different animals, preference or aversion behaviors towards a place in a rectangular three-chamber maze task. This study examined the effect o(..)

Effects of individual stressors used in a battery of “chronic unpredictable stress” on long-term plasticity in the hippocampus of juvenile rats

Alexandra A. Gorbunova/ Irina V. Kudryashova/ Anna O. Manolova/ Margarita R. Novikova/ Mikhail Yu. Stepanichev/ Natalia V. Gulyaeva

We have studied alterations in the properties of long-term potentiation (LTP) in hippocampal slices of juvenile rats induced by the exposure of animals to different individual stressors usually used in batteries of chronic unpredictable stress (CUS), a widely used model of depression. Social isolation for 16 h did substantially affect neither the magnitude and nor the development of LTP. The effects of stroboscopic illumination and water deprivation appeared most severe, though opposite: the fir(..)

Marble burying as compulsive behaviors in male and female mice

George T. Taylor/ Sandra Lerch/ Sabine Chourbaji

Marble burying is considered an, albeit controversial, animal model of the compulsive like behaviors of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Hallmark features of OCD patients are similarities and, more prominent, differences from anxiety disorders, e.g., the absence of sex differences and resistance to spontaneous remission. We report an experiment on marble burying by male and female C57/BL6/N mice. Animals were administered either the classic anxiolytic drug, diazepam, that targets the GABA re(..)

In vivo stimulation of locus coeruleus: effects on amygdala subnuclei

Elisa Rodríguez-Ortega/ Fernando Cañadas/ Francisca Carvajal/ Diana Cardona

The locus coeruleus (LC) is the major noradrenergic nucleus and sends projections to almost all brain areas. A marked increase in norepinephrine release has been demonstrated in several brain areas in response to exposure to acute stressful stimuli, especially those innervated by LC projections. One of the brain areas innervated by LC neurons is the amygdala, a structure highly involved in emotional processes and memory formation. The aim of this study was to increase knowledge of the functional(..)
