Introduction: Neurocognitive models gave place to an important improvement in our understanding of several mental disorders such as schizophrenia. In this context, Prefrontal cortex (PFC) dysfunction is an essential variable ...
Prefrontal cortex excitability in early postnatally malnourished rats
(Informa Healthcare, 1986)
The effect of early postnatal malnutrition on the responsiveness of the rat prefrontal cortex was studied by determining excitability thresholds and fatigability to direct cortical stimulation. Malnutrition imposed during ...
Córtex prefrontal y trastornos del comportamiento: Modelos explicativos y métodos de evaluación
Dysfunction of prefrontal cortex explains the symptoms of many neurological and psychiatric disorders, such as the consequences of cerebral trauma and schizophrenia. Although the importance of frontal lobe functions in ...
