Reelin Regulates Postnatal Neurogenesis and Enhances Spine Hypertrophy and Long-Term Potentiation
Reelin, an extracellular protein essential for neural migration and lamination, is also expressed in the adult brain. To unravel the function of this protein in the adult forebrain, we generatedExpand

Plastic modifications induced by object recognition memory processing
Long-term potentiation (LTP) phenomenon is widely accepted as a cellular model of memory consolidation. Object recognition (OR) is a particularly useful way of studying declarative memory in rodentsExpand

Glycogen accumulation underlies neurodegeneration and autophagy impairment in Lafora disease.
Lafora disease is a fatal neurodegenerative condition characterized by the accumulation of abnormal glycogen inclusions known as Lafora bodies. It is an autosomal recessive disorder caused byExpand

A new mouse model for the trisomy of the Abcg1–U2af1 region reveals the complexity of the combinatorial genetic code of down syndrome
Mental retardation in Down syndrome (DS), the most frequent trisomy in humans, varies from moderate to severe. Several studies both in human and based on mouse models identified some regions of humanExpand

Involvement of the CA3–CA1 Synapse in the Acquisition of Associative Learning in Behaving Mice
One of the brain sites more directly related with learning and memory processes is the hippocampus. We recorded, in conscious mice, the activity-dependent changes taking place at the hippocampalExpand

Associative Learning and CA3–CA1 Synaptic Plasticity Are Impaired in D1R Null, Drd1a−/− Mice and in Hippocampal siRNA Silenced Drd1a Mice
Associative learning depends on multiple cortical and subcortical structures, including striatum, hippocampus, and amygdala. Both glutamatergic and dopaminergic neurotransmitter systems have beenExpand

Physical exercise protects against Alzheimer's disease in 3xTg-AD mice.
Physical exercise is considered to exert a positive neurophysiological effect that helps to maintain normal brain activity in the elderly. Expectations that it could help to fight Alzheimer's diseaseExpand

Kinematics of spontaneous, reflex, and conditioned eyelid movements in the alert cat.
1. Upper eyelid position and velocity, and the electromyographic (EMG) activity of the orbicularis oculi muscle, were recorded bilaterally in alert cats during spontaneous, reflexively evoked, andExpand

Transcranial direct-current stimulation modulates synaptic mechanisms involved in associative learning in behaving rabbits
Transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) is a noninvasive brain stimulation technique that has been successfully applied for modulation of cortical excitability. tDCS is capable of inducingExpand
