Neonatal rats were exposed to lead from parturition to weaning via the milk of dams drinking 0.2% lead acetate solution. The alterations of long-term potentiation (LTP) and paired-pulse facilitation (PPF) of hippocampal dentate gyrus in adult rats (90-115 days) following developmental lead exposure were studied in vivo. Input/output (I/O) function,(More)
Lead exposure is known to be associated with cognitive dysfunction in children. Impairment of the induction of long-term potentiation (LTP) has been reported in area CA1 of rat hippocampus following lead exposure in vivo and in vitro. The present study was carried out to investigate whether the alterations of N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor-independent(More)
Chronic developmental lead (Pb) exposure to the rat has been reported to impair the long-term potentiation (LTP) in area CA1 and DG of the hippocampus. The present study was performed to investigate the effects of chronic Pb exposure on homosynaptic short-term depression (STD) and long-term depression (LTD) of population spikes (PS) in area CA1 of the rat(More)
Chronic developmental lead exposure is known to be associated with cognitive dysfunction in children. Impairment of the induction of long-term depression (LTD) has been reported in area CA1 and dentate gyrus (DG) of rat hippocampus following chronic lead exposure. The present study was carried out to investigate age-related alterations of LTD in area CA1(More)
Aluminum (Al), an important neurotoxin, contributes to a variety of cognitive dysfunction and mental diseases. Previous studies have demonstrated that Al impairs hippocampal long-term potentiation (LTP) in vitro and in vivo. In the present study, both LTP and LTD (long-term depression) were recorded in the same animal to investigate the Al-induced(More)
Long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD), two forms of synaptic plasticity, are believed to underlie the mechanisms of learning and memory. Previous studies have demonstrated that low-level lead exposure can impair the induction and maintenance of LTP in vivo and in vitro. The present study was carried out to investigate whether the(More)
The effects of Fe(2+) on the properties of three types of ion channels were studied in acutely dissociated rat hippocampal pyramidal neurons from area CA1 at postnatal ages of 7-14 days using the whole cell patch clamp technique. The results indicated that: (1) in the existence of Fe(2+), the activation voltage threshold of transient outward K(+) currents(More)

The effects of in vivo heat exposure on gestation day (GD) 10 rat embryos were evaluated on GD 11 to determine the relationships between morphological sequelae following in vivo and in vitro exposures and between effects detected on GD 11 and those observed in postnatal day (PND) 3 pups. Anesthetized rats were exposed to 42 degrees C in a warm air incubator(More)
Women are more vulnerable to major depressive disorder (MDD) than men. However, molecular biomarkers of sex differences are limited. Here we combined gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)- and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based metabonomics to investigate sex differences of urinary metabolite markers in MDD, and further explore their potential of(More)
