The neonatal ventral hippocampal lesion in the rat has been used as a model of schizophrenia, a human disorder associated with changes in markers of dopamine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) circuits in various regions of the brain. We investigated whether alterations in mRNA markers related to the activity of midbrain dopaminergic and GABAergic neurons(More)
Drosophila melanogaster collected in sub-equatorial Africa in the 1970s are remarkably tolerant of sustained laboratory culture above 30 degrees C and of acute exposure to much warmer temperatures. Inducible thermotolerance of high temperatures, which in Drosophila melanogaster is due in part to the inducible molecular chaperone Hsp70, is only modest in(More)
Naturally occurring transposable element (TE) insertions that disrupt Drosophila promoters are correlated with modified promoter function and are posited to play a significant role in regulatory evolution, but their phenotypes have not been established directly. To establish the functional consequences of these TE insertions, we created constructs with(More)
Many anxiety disorders, as well as major depressive disorder (MDD), are at least twice as prevalent in women as in men, but the neurobiological basis of this discrepancy has not been well studied. MDD is often precipitated by exposure to uncontrollable stress, and is frequently characterized by abnormal or disrupted prefrontal cortex (PFC) function. In(More)
We used in situ hybridization histochemistry to assess expression of dopamine receptors (D1R, D2R and D3R), neurotensin, proenkephalin and glutamate decarboxylase-67 (GAD67) in the prefrontal cortex, striatum, and/or nucleus accumbens in adult rats with neonatal ventral hippocampal (VH) lesions and in control animals after acute and chronic treatment with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Stroke is the third leading cause of death in Argentina, yet little information exists on the acute treatment provided for stroke or its costs. This study estimates the national costs of the acute treatment of first-ever intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and ischemic stroke (IS) in Argentina. METHODS Retrospective hospital-based(More)
Purpose: The proximal humerus is a common location for both primary and metastatic bone tumors. There are numerous reconstruction options after surgical resection. There is no consensus on the ideal method of reconstruction. A systematic review was performed with a focus on the surgical reconstructive options for lesions involving the proximal humerus. A(More)
