Regional dissociations within the hippocampus—memory and anxiety
The Time of Prenatal Immune Challenge Determines the Specificity of Inflammation-Mediated Brain and Behavioral Pathology
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the effects of maternal immune challenge between middle and late gestation periods in mice are dissociable in terms of fetal brain cytokine responses to maternal inflammation and the pathological consequences in brain and behavior.
Long-term Biobehavioral Effects of Maternal Separation in the Rat: Consistent or Confusing?
TLDR
Evaluating typical effects of maternal separation in the laboratory rat by categorizing different experimental procedures focuses in particular on longterm behavioral effects, although a brief summary of neuroendocrine effects is also provided.
Stress in Puberty Unmasks Latent Neuropathological Consequences of Prenatal Immune Activation in Mice
TLDR
Exposure to prenatal immune challenge and peripubertal stress induces synergistic pathological effects on adult behavioral functions and neurochemistry and it is demonstrated that the prenatal insult markedly increases the vulnerability of the pubescent offspring to brain immune changes in response to stress.
Dissociating context and space within the hippocampus: effects of complete, dorsal, and ventral excitotoxic hippocampal lesions on conditioned freezing and spatial learning.
TLDR
Rats with complete excitotoxic hippocampal lesions or selective damage to the dorsal or ventral hippocampus were compared with controls on measures of contextually conditioned freezing in a signaled shock procedure and on a spatial water-maze task; the partial lesion effects seen in the 2 tasks never resembled each other.
