Thalamus volume change and cognitive impairment in early relapsing–remitting multiple sclerosis patients
(SAGE Publications, 2018-06)
Aims: The objective of the study was to assess whether changes in the volume of the thalamus during the onset of multiple sclerosis predict cognitive impairment after accounting for the effects of brain volume loss. Methods: ...
Disruption of thalamocortical activity in schizophrenia models: relevance to antipsychotic drug action
(Cambridge University Press, 2013-11)
Non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonists are widely used as pharmacological models of schizophrenia due to their ability to evoke the symptoms of the illness. Likewise, serotonergic hallucinogens, acting on 5-HT2A receptors, ...
Visualization of fast calcium oscillations in the parafascicular nucleus
The parafascicular nucleus (Pf) is an ascending target of the pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) and is part of the “non-specific” intralaminar thalamus. The PPN, part of the reticular activating system, is mainly involved in ...
Numerical Analysis of the Cerebral Cortex in Diprotodontids (Marsupialia; Australidelphia) and Comparison with Eutherian Brains
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2020-12)
Diprotodontids are a diverse group of Australian metatherians, which occupy a range of ecological niches from nectar and pollen-feeders to grazers and folivores. The group encompasses small-brained nectar-feeding species ...
Failure to Recover from Proactive Semantic Interference and Abnormal Limbic Connectivity in Asymptomatic, Middle-Aged Offspring of Patients with Late-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease
(IOS Press, 2017-10)
Background: We have obtained previous evidence of limbic dysfunction in middle-Aged, asymptomatic offspring of lateonset Alzheimer´s disease (LOAD) patients, and failure to recover from proactive semantic interference has ...

Morphine withdrawal syndrome and its prevention with baclofen: Autoradiographic study of μ‐opioid receptors in prepubertal male and female mice
(Wiley-liss, Div John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2006-07)
Although the expression of the morphine (MOR) withdrawal syndrome is more marked in male mice than in females, we have demonstrated that the GABAB agonist baclofen (BAC) is able to attenuate MOR withdrawal signs in either ...
Factoring the brain signatures of anesthesia concentration and level of arousal across individuals
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier Science, 2015-12)
Combining resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) connectivity and behavioral analysis during sedation, we factored out general effects of the anesthetic drug propofol and a specific index of conscious ...
