Spatial and nonspatial learning across the rat estrous cycle.
Recent evidence has demonstrated that there are fluctuations in both the anatomy and physiology of the hippocampus across the estrous cycle of the female rat. In the present study we examined theExpand

Sex differences in thermal nociception and morphine antinociception in rodents depend on genotype
It has been appreciated for some time that the sexes can differ in their sensitivity to pain and its inhibition. Both the human and rodent literatures remain quite contentious, with manyExpand

LTP varies across the estrous cycle: enhanced synaptic plasticity in proestrus rats
Previous studies have shown that the number of dendritic spines and synapses in hippocampal CA1 stratum radiatum decreases more than 30% between the proestrus (high estrogen) and estrus (lowExpand

The substantia nigra of the rat: A golgi study
Three variants of the Golgi method were employed to examine the cell types, their dendritic fields and organization and azonal trajectories within the substantia nigra of albino and hooded rats. InExpand

Neuron number decreases in the rat ventral, but not dorsal, medial prefrontal cortex between adolescence and adulthood
Neuroimaging studies have established that there are losses in the volume of gray matter in certain cortical regions between adolescence and adulthood, with changes in the prefrontal cortex beingExpand

  • 1 December 1982
Dendritic maturation of pyramidal neurons in layers III and V of the rat visual cortex was quantified in rapid Golgi‐stained tissue from socially housed hooded rats at ages 15, 30, and 60 days. AExpand

Ovarian Hormone Replacement to Aged Ovariectomized Female Rats Benefits Acquisition of the Morris Water Maze
Ovarian steroids have been suggested to aid in preserving cognitive functioning during aging in both humans and other animals. Spatial memory relies heavily on the hippocampus, a structure that isExpand

Cell death in the development of the posterior cortex in male and female rats
Work from our laboratory has shown that adult male rats have 19% more neurons than female rats in the binocular region and 18% more in the monocular region of the primary visual cortex (Reid andExpand

Neuron and glia numbers in the basolateral nucleus of the amygdala from preweaning through old age in male and female rats: A stereological study
The rat basolateral nucleus of the amygdala continues to develop connectivity with the frontal cortex through the periadolescent period and even into young adulthood. Although neuronal loss in theExpand

Effects of rearing complexity on dendritic branching in frontolateral and temporal cortex of the rat.
Dendritic branching was studied in Golgi-stained neurons from frontolateral and temporal cortex of rats reared for 30 days after weaning in complex, social, or isolated environments. In temporalExpand
