The aim of the present study is to investigate the effect of quercetin, a naturally occurring flavonoid, on cerebral blood flow (CBF), brain energy metabolism, memory impairment, oxidative stress and cholinergic dysfunction in brain following intracerebral (i.c.) streptozotocin (STZ) administration in mice. STZ (0.5mg/kg, i.c.) was administered twice at an(More)
The Renin-angiotensin system, besides blood pressure regulation, affects learning and memory as evidenced by improvement of cognition in hypertensive patients being treated with AT1 receptor blockers like candesartan. The present study examined the influence of candesartan on memory impairment induced by intracerebral streptozotocin (IC STZ 0.5 mg/kg) in(More)
Preclinical and clinical studies indicated involvement of the central renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in memory functions. However, the role of central angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) in memory function is still unclear. The present study investigated the involvement of central ACE in colchicine-induced memory impairment in the context of cholinergic(More)
