Toluene misuse usually initiates at an early age when the central nervous system is still immature, causing deleterious effects such as cognitive impairment. Epigenetic regulatory mechanisms have been proposed to explain long-term changes involved not only in memory, but also in toluene's actions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of acute(More)
Growing evidence indicates that antagonists of the 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) receptor(6) (5-HT(6)) improve memory and reverse amnesia although the mechanisms involved are poorly understood. Hence, in this paper RT-PCR was used to evaluate changes in mRNA expression of 5-HT(6) receptor in trained and untrained rats treated with the 5-HT(6) receptor(More)
The continued abuse of inhaled organic solvents, especially among women of childbearing age, raises the risk of long-term behavioral effects of maternal toluene abuse. In this study, the effects of short-term exposures to high toluene concentrations (i.e., “binges”) were tested in independent groups of adolescent rats with different toluene treatments: (a)(More)
