During treatment of brain tumors, some head and neck tumors, and other diseases, like arteriovenous malformations, the normal brain is exposed to ionizing radiation. While high radiation doses can cause severe tissue destruction, lower doses can induce cognitive impairments without signs of overt tissue damage. The underlying pathogenesis of these(More)
Histamine H(3) receptors (H3Rs) were first characterized as autoreceptors modulating histamine release and synthesis via negative feedback. Acute H3R stimulation or blockade with selective agonists and antagonists suggests a role for H3R in anxiety and cognition. However, little is known about the long-term effects of H3R blockade on brain function. In the(More)
Increased anxiety may occur in up to 70% of AD patients during the course of their illness. Here we show that human apoE isoforms, which differ in AD risk, have differential effects on measures of anxiety in adult Apoe-/- male mice expressing human apoE3 or apoE4 in their brains and male probable AD (PRAD) patients. Compared with wild-type mice, Apoe-/-(More)
