The neuropeptide orphanin FQ (also known as nociceptin; OFQ/N) has been implicated in modulating stress-related behavior. OFQ/N was demonstrated to reverse stress-induced analgesia and possess anxiolytic-like activity after central administration. To further study physiological functions of OFQ/N, we have generated OFQ/N-deficient mice by targeted(More)
We have used site-directed mutagenesis in conjunction with homologous recombination to generate two mouse lines carrying point mutations in the glycine binding site of the NMDAR1 subunit (Grin1). Glycine concentration-response curves from acutely dissociated hippocampal neurons revealed a 5- and 86-fold reduction in receptor glycine affinity in mice(More)
The GluR2 subunit of the alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazoleproprionic acid (AMPA) receptor determines many of the biophysical properties of native AMPA receptors, including Ca++ permeability. Genetically engineered mice unable to edit the Q to R site of the GluR2 subunit die within 3 wk postpartum, presumably due to toxicity associated with enhanced(More)
OBJECTIVES The long-term outcomes of several approaches to intervention targeting social functioning in schizophrenia are not well documented. Contemporary supportive psychodynamic psychotherapy (SPP) aims to improve social functioning. The aim of the present study was to investigate the long-term outcome of SPP in a prospective, longitudinal, comparative,(More)
