Aluminum (Al) is potentially toxic for mammals. In contrast to well documented Al neurotoxicity, neurobehavioral studies of Al in rodents have generally not produced robust or consistent results. In the present study, 16 young male (21 days old) and 16 old male (18 months) rats were exposed to 0 (control group) and 100 mg/kg/day of Al administered as Al(More)
The influence of stress on postnatal development and behavior was assessed in the offspring of male rats exposed to uranium (U). Eight groups of adult animals received uranyl acetate dihydrate (UAD) in the drinking water at doses of 0, 10, 20 and 40 mg/kg/day during 3 months. One half of rats in each group were concurrently subjected to restraint stress(More)
The effects on postnatal development and behavior were assessed in the offspring of female rats concurrently exposed to uranium (U) and restraint stress. Adult female rats were administered uranyl acetate dihydrate (UAD) in the drinking water at doses of 0, 40 and 80 mg/(kg day) for 4 weeks before mating with untreated males, as well as during pregnancy and(More)
Exposure of pregnant women to polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) may mean serious health risks. The main goal of the present study was to examine the neurobehavioral changes in rat offspring that were perinatally exposed to one of the most prevalent PBDEs congeners found in humans, 2,2',4,4',5-pentaBDE (BDE-99). Rat dams were exposed to 0, 1 and(More)
This study evaluated the influence of age on the aluminum (Al) interaction with calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) in the brain of rats. Since both Al and aging have been associated with neurobehavioral deficits in mammals, the brain was chosen to assess that influence. Male young (21 day), adult (8 months),(More)
The influence of restraint stress on uranium (U)-induced behavioral effects was assessed in adult male rats. Eight groups of animals received uranyl acetate dihydrate (UAD) in the drinking water at doses of 0, 10, 20 and 40 mg/kg/day during 3 months. Rats in four groups were concurrently subjected to restraint during 2 h per day throughout the study. At the(More)
