Abnormal Fear Conditioning and Amygdala Processing in an Animal Model of Autism
A core feature of autism spectrum disorders is the impairment in social interactions. Among other brain regions, a deficit in amygdala processing has been suggested to underlie this impairment, butExpand

Stress and Memory: Behavioral Effects and Neurobiological Mechanisms
Stress is a potent modulator of learning and memory processes. Although there have been a few attempts in the literature to explain the diversity of effects (including facilitating, impairing, andExpand

Experience‐dependent Facilitating Effect of Corticosterone on Spatial Memory Formation in the Water Maze
Stress‐related adrenal steroid hormones modulate brain and cognitive function. Electrophysiological studies, including primed burst potentiation and long‐term potentiation, have indicatedExpand

Stress Effects on Working Memory, Explicit Memory, and Implicit Memory for Neutral and Emotional Stimuli in Healthy Men
Stress is a strong modulator of memory function. However, memory is not a unitary process and stress seems to exert different effects depending on the memory type under study. Here, we explored theExpand

Prior exposure to a single stress session facilitates subsequent contextual fear conditioning in rats: Evidence for a role of corticosterone
Previous studies showed that exposure of rats to chronic restraint stress for 21 days enhances subsequent contextual fear conditioning. Since recent evidence suggest that this effect is not dependentExpand

Urolithin A induces mitophagy and prolongs lifespan in C. elegans and increases muscle function in rodents
The biological effects of urolithins remain poorly characterized, despite wide-spread human exposure via the dietary consumption of their metabolic precursors, the ellagitannins, which are found inExpand

Stress at Learning Facilitates Memory Formation by Regulating AMPA Receptor Trafficking Through a Glucocorticoid Action
Stress and glucocorticoids (GCs) can facilitate memory formation. However, the molecular mechanisms mediating their effects are largely unknown. α-Amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acidExpand

Regulation of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the chronic unpredictable stress rat model and the effects of chronic antidepressant treatment.
Chronic unpredictable stress (CUS) is a widely used animal model of depression. The present study was undertaken to investigate behavioral, physiological and molecular effects of CUS and/or chronicExpand
