Housing rats in an enriched environment improves functional outcome after ischemic stroke, this may reflect neuronal plasticity in brain regions outside the lesion. Which components of the enriched environment that are of greatest importance for recovery after brain ischemia is uncertain. We have previously found that enriched environment and social(More)
The progesterone metabolite allopregnanolone, like benzodiazepines, reduces learning and impairs memory in rats. Both substances act as GABA agonists at the GABA-A receptor and impair the performance in the Morris water maze test. Women are during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and during hormone replacement therapy exposed to allopregnanolone or(More)
AIM The roles of alpha-subunits on the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-site antagonism and pentobarbital actions were examined in rat recombinant GABA(A) receptors in Xenopus oocytes. METHODS Experiments were performed with binary and ternary GABA(A) receptors containing alpha1-, alpha4- or alpha5-subunit by the two-electrode voltage-clamp technique. (More)
