Cell genesis in the subgranular zone of the dentate gyrus of 2-month-old rabbits has been investigated. After incorporation of tritiated thymidine, electron microscopic autoradiography allowed description of the ultrastructure of the cells labelled and the progressive transformation of these cells into granular neurons to be followed.

Peripheral-type benzodiazepine Receptors (PBR) in the kidney and Central-type Benzodiazepine Receptors (CBR) in the cerebral cortex were not affected in rats exposed to chronic hyperoxia (85% O2, ATA, 6 days). Nevertheless, cortical CBR showed a significant decrease (29%) after hyperbaric hyperoxia (100% O2, 3.5 ATA, 2 h) in rats at a preconvulsive stage,(More)
Adult rabbits were subjected to 4.5 Gy of whole-blody or brain alone gamma-irradiation, and their hippocampus was examined with the light and electron microscope. Pycnotic cells were found at the base of the granular layer of the dentate gyrus in the so-called subgranular zone, as soon as 3 h after irradiation, and were cleared up by active phagocytosis(More)
In patients suffering from stress-related pathologies and depression, frontal cortex GABA and glutamate contents are reported to decrease and increase, respectively. This suggests that the GABA and/or glutamate content may participate in pathological phenotype expression. Whether differences in frontal cortex GABA and glutamate contents would be associated(More)
