Aerobic exercise has an anxiolytic effect on streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats

exercise session. Behavioral tests Both behavioral tests were carried out in the early morning (09:00-12:00) on the day after the final exercise session. The open field test (OFT) always preceded elevated plus maze (EPM), and there was no break between tests. The test room was kept silent under consistent light (110 lux, warm light). The observer remained outside during the test session. A hidden camera recorded the entire test, and the tapes were analyzed blindly. Test setups were cleaned with 70

Effects of social stress and clomipramine on emotional memory in mice

dark compartment of the apparatus. In the IA test phase (one week later) the same procedure took place, but without shock. Complementary measures were obtained by evaluating all the animals in an elevated plus maze (locomotor activity and emotionality) and on a hot plate (analgesia). IA learning was confirmed in all groups except the stressed+saline group, which was the only one that exhibited higher anxiety levels. No variations were observed in either locomotor activity or analgesia. In

Further pharmacological characterization of eltoprazine: focus on its anxiolytic, anorexic, and adverse-effect potential

infusion or as twice-daily treatment, eltoprazine produced a decrease in food intake and body weight at doses leading to 200–500 nM plasma concentrations. In the elevated plus maze eltoprazine increased anxiety-like behavior. On the other hand, it induced a clear-cut anxiolytic effect in context fear conditioning test starting at ca. 0.3 mg/kg, and failed to produce any significant effect in fear potentiated startle test. Regarding adverse effects, eltoprazine was found to produce hypothermia starting

Detrimental effects of chia (Salvia hispanica L.) seeds on learning and memory in aluminum chloride-induced experimental Alzheimer’s disease

established (i.e., treatment). A battery of behavioral and cognitive tests were performed, including open-field, elevated plus maze, Porsolt’s forced swim, and Morris’ water maze, to evaluate anxietyand depression-like behaviors, and learning and memory. Results showed that chia supplementation was ineffective against Alzheimer’s-related anxiety, whereas depression-like behaviors were attenuated with both pretreatment and treatment. There was no improvement in learning and memory with chia treatment

Prevention of cadmium-induced neurotoxicity in rats by essential nutrients present in nuts

to behavioral analysis by monitoring depressogenic and anxiogenic behaviors in the forced swim test (FST) and light/dark transition (LDT) test, respectively. Memory function was assessed using the elevated plus maze (EPM), Morris water maze (MWM) and novel object recognition (NOR) task. Administration of nuts was continued until the end of the behavioral analysis. Rats were decapitated after behavioral analysis to collect brain samples, which were stored at −20°C for analysis of biogenic amine

Intracerebroventricular streptozotocin induces behavioral impairments and increases short-term C3 gene expression in the hippocampus of Wistar rats

animals in opaque standard laboratory cages. Two groups were used as a control, in which icv injections of citrate buffer were administered (control group) and the other two groups received streptozotocin via icv (STZ group). One control and one STZ group were submitted to the elevated plus maze (EPM) and had their brains removed one month after the injections (phase 1). Four months later, the other two groups were submitted to the same procedure to evaluate short and long-term effects of STZ
