Systemic estradiol treatment enhances hippocampus-dependent memory in ovariectomized rats. Although these enhancements are traditionally thought to be due to circulating estradiol, recent data suggest these changes are brought on by hippocampus-derived estradiol, the synthesis of which depends on gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) activity. The goal of(More)
The protective effect of the (n-3) fatty acids in menhaden fish oil on acute cerebral ischemia was investigated in cats. Cerebral ischemia was produced by ligation of the left middle cerebral artery of cats fed either a basal diet of feline cat chow or the basal diet supplemented with 8% of the calories as menhaden oil for 18-24 days. Fatty acids esters of(More)
This paper focuses on an individual's decision to drive or not to drive after drinking. To evaluate this decision, a utility maximizing probabilistic choice model is specified and estimated using a sample of college students. The estimation results provide interesting insights relating to the potential effectiveness of drinking-driving countermeasures, and(More)
Materials and Methods. Wistar rats weighing 434 to 478 g were anesthetizedith ketamine (87 mg/kg) and xylazine (13 mg/kg) injected intramuscularly. PE-10 polyethylene catheters were inserted into the femoral artery and vein. The arterial catheter was connected to a blood pressure transducer and systemic arterial blood pressure was continuously imonitored.(More)
Ovariectomised rats that have received previous administration of oestradiol in midlife display enhanced cognition and increased hippocampal levels of oestrogen receptor (ER)α months after oestradiol treatment ended compared to ovariectomised controls. The present study aimed to investigate the mechanisms by which ERα levels are maintained following midlife(More)
