Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common type of epilepsy in humans. The lithium-pilocarpine model in rodents reproduces some of the main features of human TLE. Three-week-old Wistar rats were used in this study. The changes in AMPA receptor subunit composition were investigated in several brain areas, including the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC),(More)
Depression is a disease that is associated with high economic and social burdens; some of its epidemiological factors are yet to be studied. In particular, the consumption of high levels of fat and cholesterol, which are typical of the “western diet” may be a factor in the prevalence of depression and a part of its pathogenesis. This review focuses on the(More)
Infectious diseases at early ages are often followed by impairments in cognitive functions in children and adolescents. A possible mechanism of these impairments is an altered production of proteins that are involved in the regulation of neuroplasticity in brain cells. One of these proteins is the basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF2). In the present study,(More)
Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common type of focal epilepsy in humans, and is often developed after an initial precipitating brain injury. This form of epilepsy is frequently resistant to pharmacological treatment; therefore, the prevention of TLE is the prospective approach to TLE therapy. The lithium-pilocarpine model in rats replicates some of(More)
