The gut microbiota in neuropsychiatric disorders

Marta Grochowska/ Marcin Wojnar/ Marek Radkowski

The purpose of this review is to summarize current knowledge about the gut microbiota in neuropsychiatric disorders. It is estimated that the human gut is colonized by up to 1018 microorganisms, mostly anaerobic bacteria. The gut microbiome is responsible for multiple functions, e.g. tightness of the intestine barrier, digestion and absorption. The correlation between gut dysbiosis and development of psychiatric, autoimmune and allergic diseases as well as bidirectional communication between bra(..)

Fos immunoreactivity in the intermediolateral nucleus induced by tendon vibration of the m. triceps surae in rats pretreated with a nitric oxide blocker or precursor

Inna V. Vereshchaka/ Andriy V. Maznychenko/ Olena P. Mankivska/ Volodymyr O. Maisky/ Oleh V. Vlasenko/ Olexandr V. Dovgan/ Olga L. Ocheretna/ Tomasz Tomiak/ Alexander I. Kostyukov

We investigated neuronal activation of the rat intermediolateral (IML) nucleus of the thoracolumbar spinal cord, initiated by Achilles tendon vibration, after intramuscular (m. triceps surae) administration of 7-nitroindazole (7-NI) or L-arginine (LA). The spindle afferent response to vibratory stimuli induced a distinct bilateral increase in the activation of c-Fos immunoreactivity in the spinal neurons in three groups of rats (tendon-vibrated, tendon-vibrated + 7-NI and tendon-vibrated + LA).

The relationship between alpha burst activity and the default mode network

Mateusz Rusiniak/ Andrzej Wróbel/ Katarzyna Cieśla/ Agnieszka Pluta/ Monika Lewandowska/ Joanna Wójcik/ Piotr H. Skarżyński/ Tomasz Wolak

Alpha rhythm, described by Hans Berger, is mainly recorded from the occipital cortex (OCC) of relaxed subjects with their eyes closed. Early studies indicated the thalamo-cortical circuit as the origin of alpha rhythm. Recent works suggest an additional relationship between alpha rhythm and the Default Mode Network (DMN). We simultaneously recorded electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) signals in 36 young males asked to alternately close and open their eye(..)

Face processing in a case of high functioning autism with developmental prosopagnosia

Hanna B. Cygan/ Hanna Okuniewska/ Katarzyna Jednoróg/ Artur Marchewka/ Marek Wypych/ Anna Nowicka

The ability to “read” the information about facial identity, expressed emotions, and intentions is crucial for non-verbal social interaction. Neuroimaging and clinical studies consequently link face perception with fusiform gyrus (FG) and occipital face area (OFA) activity. Here we investigated face processing in an adult, patient PK, diagnosed with both high functioning autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and developmental prosopagnosia (DP). Both disorders have a significant impact on face percepti(..)

Administration of muscarinic antagonists induce changes in passive avoidance learning and in synaptic transmission in the CA1 area of the hippocampus

Yulia V. Dobryakova/ Olga Y. Ivanova/ Vladimir A. Markevich

Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChR) are known to be related to learning and memory processes. Inactivation of mAChR by cholinergic antagonists have been shown to produce amnesia in a variety of behavioral tasks. In this study, we investigated the role of M1 and M2 AChR on passive avoidance learning and plasticity of synapses formed by Schaffer collaterals in freely moving rats. Experiments were performed using Wistar male rats. Seven days before testing, a recording electrode was lowered (..)

Influence of age on speech intelligibility in babble noise

Libor Černý/ Jan Vokřál/ Olga Dlouhá

Problems with hearing aids, particularly with regard to speech intelligibility in the presence of noise, are commonly reported by older individuals in everyday practice. The main goal of this study was to measure differences in speech intelligibility between older and younger people and to establish how speech intelligibility in competitive noise differs between younger and older populations with similar hearing status. More than 400 persons were tested using the Czech Test of Sentence Intelligi(..)

Summation of two illusions of extent

Algis Bertulis/ Tadas Surkys/ Arūnas Bielevičius

In the present visual psychophysical study, the Oppel-Kundt and and Müller-Lyer illusion magnitudes were measured separately (by single figures) and in combination (by two patterns superposed spatially). Data for 30 subjects revealed extensive variability both for the separate and combined illusion strength. Nevertheless, the effect of addition of the perceived length distortions was established. The combined illusions were significantly stronger than the separate ones. Dynamics of the mispercep(..)

The influence of mood on visual perception of neutral material

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

In the study we investigated how current mood affects spontaneous perceptual processes of neutral stimuli of low-arousal, unrelated to any specific task. Two separate but similar procedures were carried out: one using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), the other using electroencephalography based source localization. In both experiments, sessions of passive viewing of neutral pictures were preceded by either a negative or positive mood induction. In response to neutral stimuli, we obs(..)

Changes in neurogenesis with post-hatching age in the male Japanese quail (Cortunix japonica) brain

Pilani Nkomozepi/ Pedzisai Mazengenya/ Amadi O. Ihunwo

Most avian neurogenesis studies have previously focused on the song control system and little attention has been given to non-song birds. The objective of this study was to assess changes in neurogenesis associated with post-hatching age (3-12 weeks) in the Japanese quail brain using proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and doublecortin (DCX) immunohistochemistry. PCNA-immunoreactive (ir) cells were observed mainly in the olfactory bulb ventricular zone, telencephalic ventricular zones and (..)
