The brain that grows and develops under the continued influence of malnutrition presents permanent impairment on functioning and neurotransmitter release. The aim of this study was to investigate the chronic effects of neonatal food restriction on neurochemical and neurodynamical aspects within the primary auditory sensory pathway. Our working hypothesis(More)
Cannabinoids and drugs that increase endocannabinoid levels inhibit neuronal excitability and restrain epileptic seizures through CB1 receptor activation. Nevertheless, the results have not been entirely consistent, since pro-convulsant effects have also been reported. The present study aimed to further investigate the effects of cannabinoid-related(More)
Increasing body of evidence suggests that inflammatory and neurotrophic factors might be important for epileptogenesis. Most animal studies demonstrated altered levels of these mediators in drug-induced models of seizures and epilepsy. In the present study, we investigated the production of cytokines and a neurotrophin in the brain of Wistar Audiogenic Rats(More)
The pilocarpine (PILO) animal model of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (TLE) portrays the most common changes in hippocampal circuitry found in human TLE. The acute cholinergic insult induces status epilepticus (SE), which triggers an overwhelming set of plastic events that result on late spontaneous recurrent limbic seizures. It has been suggested that the(More)
Cerebral malaria (CM) is a life-threatening complication of Plasmodium falciparum infection, which can result in long-term cognitive and behavioral deficits despite successful anti-malarial therapy. Due to the substantial social and economic burden of CM, the development of adjuvant therapies is a scientific goal of highest priority. Apart from vascular and(More)
Given the known effects of undernutrition over protein synthesis, we promoted neonatal undernutrition to evaluate its effect over the neuroplasticity induced by the pilocarpine model of epilepsy and also over spontaneous seizure expression. A well-nourished group (WN), fed ad libitum rat chow diet, and an undernourished group (UN), fed 60% of the amount of(More)
This paper deals with the Vehicle Routing Problem with Simultaneous Pickup and Delivery (VRPSPD). Due to the combinatorial nature of the problem, heuristics methods are commonly used to generate good quality solutions in an acceptable compputational time. Therefore, a greedy randomized adaptive search procedure that uses a variable neighborhood descent(More)
