Recent studies have implicated the habenula in modulating states of arousal and chronic responses to stress. We examined whether lesion of the habenula efferent pathway, the fasciculus retroflexus (FR), at either 3 (P3) or 70 (P70) days of age affects stress-related anxiety (elevated plus-maze test) and activity levels (open-field test) in rats tested as(More)
We have identified a class of small organic molecules, derived from the indolocarbazole K-252a, that promote the survival of cultured neurons. However, many of these indolocarbazoles inhibit protein kinase C and neurotrophin-activated tyrosine kinase receptors. These kinase inhibitory activities may limit the utility of these compounds for neurological(More)
Peripheral injection of the indolocarbazole CEP-1347/KT-7515 into rats that have sustained ibotenic acid lesions of the nucleus basalis magnocellularis has been shown to prevent the loss of cortically-projecting neurons in that basal forebrain region. The present study tested whether this neuroprotective activity would lead to chronic sparing of a behaviour(More)
