Introduction: The brain renin-angiotensin system (RAS) has been reported having a pathological role in age-related impairment in learning and memory. Therefore, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) are expected to have positive effects on memory. Longtime treatment with captopril (an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor) significantly(More)
It is well known that postnatal maturation of the central nervous system is critically dependent on thyroid hormone levels (Thompson & Potter, 2000) and this might influence the neuromuscular system (Barakat-Walter et al., 2000). Previous neuroanatomical and biochemical investigations demonstrated that development of skeletal muscles including the masseter(More)
Oxidative stress is a major pathogenic mechanism of lead neurotoxicity. The antioxidant ascorbic acid protects hippocampal pyramidal neurons against cell death during congenital lead exposure; however, critical functions like synaptic transmission, integration, and plasticity depend on preservation of dendritic and somal morphology. This study was designed(More)
