The objective of this work was to study the effect of early weaning on circadian rhythm and the behavioral satiety sequence in adult rats. Male Wistar rat pups were weaned for separation from the mother at 15 (D15), 21 (D21) and 30 (D30) days old. Body weight and food intake was measured every 30 days until pups were 150 days old. At 90 days of age, the(More)
Neonatal repercussion researched of the serotonin selective recapture inibitor (SSRI) chronic treatment about the somatic growth, of the encephalon and skull. Male rats were divided into groups: control (NaCl) and Cit (10 microL/Kg citalopram 10 mg). In 21 post birth days were measured body weight, side axle , front and rear and skull circle. At 8, 15, 22(More)
Current study investigates the effects of maternal protein restriction during pregnancy and lactation on the testis of immature rats.

Estudos prévios do nosso grupo observou alterações da maturação reflexa e crescimento somático de ratos expostos perinatalmente à antidepressivos que atuam sobre os sistemas serotoninérgico e noradrenérgico. O presente estudo examinou o sistema colinérgico, através da exposição de fármacos inibidores da acetilcolinesterase (rivastigmina). Foram avaliados(More)
