Microconnectomics of the Pretectum and Ventral Thalamus in the Chicken (Gallus gallus)
The avian pretectal and ventrothalamic nuclei, encompassing the griseum tectale (GT), n. lentiformis mesencephali (LM), and n. geniculatus lateralis pars ventralis (GLv), are prominent retinorecipient structures related ...
Age-dependent effects of environmental enrichment on spatial memory and neurochemistry
Although aging and environmental stimulation are well-known to affect cognitive abilities, the question of whether aging effects can be distinguished in already-mature adult rats has not been fully addressed. In the ...
Neurochemistry study of spinal cord in non-human primate (Sapajus spp.)
The spinal cord is involved in local, ascending and descending neural pathways. Few studies analyzed the distribution of neuromediators in the laminae of non-human primates along all segments. The present study described ...

OBJECTIVE: The present review addresses the relationship between sleep and depression and how serotonergic transmission is implicated in both conditions. METHOD: Literature searches were performed in the PubMed and MedLine ...
Citrus aurantium L. essential oil exhibits anxiolytic-like activity mediated by 5-HT1A-receptors and reduces cholesterol after repeated oral treatment
Abstract Background The current treatments for anxiety disorders and depression have multiple adverse effects in addition to ...
Axotomy of tributaries of the pelvic and pudendal nerves induces changes in the neurochemistry of mouse dorsal root ganglion neurons and the spinal cord
(Springer Heidelberg, 2016-05)
Using immunohistochemical techniques, we characterized changes in the expression of several neurochemical markers in lumbar 4-sacral 2 (L4–S2) dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neuron profiles (NPs) and the spinal cord of BALB/c ...
