Species-specific characteristics of neuronal plasticity emerging from comparative studies can address the functional relevance of hippocampal or cortical plasticity in the light of ecological adaptation and evolutionary history of a given species. Here, we present a quantitative and qualitative analysis of neurogenesis in young and adult free-living(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate and quantify structural parameters in the developing cerebellum during hypothyroidism in pre and postnatal stages in 15 day old rat pups in comparison with 5 and 24 day old. METHODS Propylthiouracil (PTU) was fed to rat dams during mating, pregnancy and nursing and their pups in drinking water. Consequently hypothyroxinemia was(More)
The effect of pre and postnatal hypothyroid environment on the development of cerebellum in the rat pups was determined. Four groups of rat dams, namely control, Group I, II and III were treated with propylthiouracil (PTU) in water for different length of time during pregnancy and nursing periods. The pups born from these dam groups were subsequently named(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the structural parameters of the developing cerebellum in propylthiouracil (PTU)-induced hypothyroidism during pre and postnatal stages in 24 day old rat pups. METHOD Hypothyroidism was induced by feeding the breeding dams with PTU in water before and during copulation, pregnancy and lactation and the pups through the dams and(More)
