An increasing body of evidence indicates that the vitamin A metabolite retinoic acid (RA) plays a role in adult brain plasticity by activating gene transcription through nuclear receptors. Our previous studies in mice have shown that a moderate downregulation of retinoid-mediated transcription contributed to aging-related deficits in hippocampal long-term(More)
1. The aim of the present study was to explore the concept of multimodal anaesthesia using a combination of two non-opioid analgesics, namely nefopam, a centrally acting non-opioid that inhibits monoamine reuptake, and paracetamol, an inhibitor of central cyclo-oxygenases.
