Acoustic hypersensitivity in adult rats after neonatal ventral hippocampus lesions
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2010)
Rats with a bilateral neonatal ventral hippocampus lesion (NVHL) are used as models of neurobiological aspects of schizophrenia. In view of their decreased number of GABAergic interneurons, we hypothesized that they would ...
