One of the most common causes of mortality and morbidity in children is perinatal hypoxia-ischemia (HI). In spite of the advances in neonatology, its incidence is not diminishing, generating a pediatric population that will require an extended amount of chronic care throughout their lifetime. For this reason, new and more effective neuroprotective(More)
Maturation of the auditory pathway is dependent on the central nervous system myelination and it can be affected by pathologies such as neonatal hypoxic ischemic (HI) encephalopathy. Our aim was to evaluate the functional integrity of the auditory pathway and to visualize, by histological and cellular methods, the damage to the brainstem using a neonatal(More)
The perinatal brainstem is known to be very vulnerable to hypoxic–ischemic events which can lead to deafness, swallowing dysfunction, and defective respiratory control. The aim of the present work was to evaluate the potential neuroprotective effects of nicotine, melatonin, resveratrol, and docosahexaenoic acid on the expression of a panel of genes in the(More)
INTRODUCTION Hypoxia-ischemia (HI) is a major perinatal problem that results in severe damage to the brain impairing the normal development of the auditory system. The purpose of the present study is to study the effect of perinatal asphyxia on the auditory pathway by recording auditory brain responses in a novel animal experimentation model in newborn(More)
