RATIONALE Positive allosteric modulators of the glutamatergic alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoazolepropionic acid (AMPA) receptor do not stimulate AMPA receptors directly but delay deactivation of the receptor and/or slow its desensitisation. This results in increased synaptic responses and enhanced long-term potentiation. Thus, it has been suggested(More)
The effect of rasagiline on learning and memory in Lister-Hooded rats was investigated in this study. Two cognitive tests were used: a 24-h temporal deficit novel object recognition test and a modified water maze task. Rasagiline (0.3 and 1 mg/kg) was administered subcutaneously 15 min before the cognitive tests. In a novel object recognition test,(More)
RATIONALE Ghrelin, the endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue receptor, has been shown to play a role in multiple physiological processes including appetite regulation, metabolism and, more recently, dendritic spine architecture, long-term potentiation and cognition. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine the effects of two(More)
This study was designed to localize the population of dopamine D1-like receptors involved in grooming and oral movements elicited by systemic administration of the D1-selective agonist SKF-38393. Receptors in specific dopamine terminal regions were inactivated by intracranial injection of the nonselective irreversible antagonist(More)
