Developmental neurotoxicants and the vulnerable male brain: a systematic review of suspected neurotoxicants that disproportionally affect males

Janet K. Kern/ David A. Geier/ Kristin G. Homme/ Paul G. King/ Geir Bjørklund/ Salvatore Chirumbolo/ Mark R. Geier

The prevalence of neurodevelopmental disorders (NDs), including autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, tic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and emotional disturbances, has increased notably in the past few decades. To date, debate continues as to the origins of NDs. Increases in widespread exposure to and bioaccumulation of chemical neurotoxicants have paralleled the upsurge in NDs, and are suggested to be causal agents for NDs. One consistent aspect of NDs i(..)

Omitted Stimulus Potential depends on the sensory modality

Oscar Hernando Hernández/ Karla María Hernández-Sánchez

Determining the characteristics of Omitted Stimulus Potential (OSP) parameters using different sensory modalities is important because they reflect timing processes and have a substantial influence on time perception. At the same time, the central mechanisms of time perception associated with sensory processing can modulate cortical brain waves related to cognition. This experiment tested the relationship between parameters of the whole OSP brain wave when trains of auditory, visual or somatosen(..)

Top-down and bottom-up competition in visual stimuli processing

Tomasz S. Ligeza/ Agnieszka D. Tymorek/ Miroslaw Wyczesany

Limited attention capacity results that not all the stimuli present in the visual field are equally processed. While processing of salient stimuli is automatically boosted by bottom-up attention, processing of task-relevant stimuli can be boosted volitionally by top-down attention. Usually, both top-down and bottom-up influences are present simultaneously, which creates a competition between these two types of attention. We examined this competition using both behavioral and electrophysiological(..)

Antiallodynic effect of intrathecal resiniferatoxin on neuropathic pain model of chronic constriction injury

Julia Risso Parisi/ Ana Laura Martins de Andrade/ Josie Resende Torres Silva/ Marcelo Lourenço Silva

Introduction: Injuries and/or dysfunctions in the somatosensory system can lead to neuropathic pain. Transient receptor potential vanilloid sub-type 1 (TRPV1) play an important role in the development of allodynia and hyperalgesia following injury and the ensuing inflammatory conditions. Resiniferatoxin (RTX) is an ultrapotent synthetic TRPV1 agonist and many different administration routes are available for different mechanisms and different effects. RTX is used intraperitonially as a model of (..)

Effects of different delayed exercise regimens on cognitive performance in fimbria-fornix transected rats

Elise Wogensen/ Linda Marschner/ Marie Gajhede Gram/ Siri Mehlsen/ Valdemar H. B. Uhre/ Pernille Bülow/ Jesper Mogensen/ Hana Malá

Studies have shown that exercise can positively influence cognitive performance after brain injury. This study investigated the effects of different exercise regimens on allocentric place learning after fimbria-fornix (FF) transection. One hundred and sixteen pre-shaped rats were subjected either to a mechanical transection of the FF or control sham surgery and divided into following groups: i) no exercise (NE), ii) voluntary exercise in a running wheel (RW), iii) forced swimming exercise admini(..)

Axonal outgrowth stimulation after alginate/mesenchymal stem cell therapy in injured rat spinal cord

Juraj Blaško/ Eva Szekiova/ Lucia Slovinska/ Jozef Kafka/ Dasa Cizkova

Despite strong efforts in the field, spinal cord trauma still belongs among the untreatable neurological conditions at present. Given the complexity of the nervous system, an effective therapy leading to complete recovery has still not been found. One of the potential tools for supporting tissue regeneration may be found in mesenchymal stem cells, which possess anti-inflammatory and trophic factor-producing properties. In the context of transplantations, application of degradable biomaterials wh(..)

Interaction between the serotoninergic and GABAergic systems in frog retina as revealed by electroretinogram

Elka Popova/ Petia Kupenova

Functional interactions between serotoninergic and GABAergic systems in the vertebrate retina are largely unknown. In this study, the effects of isolated or combined stimulation of the serotonin receptors (with 100 µM serotonin) and ionotropic GABAA and GABAC receptors (with 5 mM TACA) on the electroretinographic (ERG) ON (b-wave) and OFF (d-wave) responses were investigated in frog eyecup preparations. It was found that serotonin alone produced a significant enhancement of the band d-wave ampli(..)

Effects of ascorbic acid on anxiety state and affect in a non-clinical sample

Bettina Moritz/ Marcelo Liborio Schwarzbold/ Ricardo Guarnieri/ Alexandre Paim Diaz/ Ana Lúcia S. Rodrigues/ Alcir Luiz Dafre

Objective Given that the literature data indicates that ascorbic acid may have an anxiolytic effect, we hypothesized that a single oral administration of ascorbic acid could acutely affect emotional states. Methods The effects of acid ascorbic supplementation on anxiety and other emotional states were evaluated by the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), and Visual Analogue Mood Scale (VAMS). Immediately before, and 2 hours after receiving a single ascorbic acid dose (1000 mg) or placebo, 142 g(..)

Antimuscarinic-induced convulsions in fasted mice after food intake: no evidence of spontaneous seizures, behavioral changes or neuronal damage

Nurhan Enginar/ Asiye Nurten/ Aslı Zengin Türkmen/ Gül İpek Gündoğan/ Zeynep Güneş Özünal

Prolonged or repeated seizures have been shown to cause spontaneous recurrent seizures, increased anxiety-related behavior, locomotor hyperactivity, impaired functions of learning and memory, and neuronal damage in the hippocampus and other brain regions in animals. Mice and rats treated with antimuscarinic drugs after fasting for two days or less develop convulsions after being allowed to eat ad libitum. To address whether such behavioral and neuroanatomic changes occur following these convulsi(..)
