Voluntary Running Provides Neuroprotection in Rats After 6-Hydroxydopamine Injection into the Medial Forebrain Bundle
Neurotoxic drugs such as 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) have been used to mimic a Parkinsonian state in a rat model. The toxic effect of 6-OHDA has been shown to be reduced in rats that were forced toExpand

Neuroprotection from Complement‐Mediated Inflammatory Damage
Abstract: Several neurodegenerative disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease, are associated with inflammatory damage. The complex process ofExpand

Vaccinia virus complement control protein significantly improves sensorimotor function recovery after severe head trauma
Vaccinia virus complement control protein (VCP) is an immunomodulator that inhibits both the classical and alternate pathways of the complement system, therefore preventing cell death andExpand

Herbal Complement Inhibitors in the Treatment of Neuroinflammation: Future Strategy for Neuroprotection
The upregulated complement system plays a damaging role in disorders of the central nervous system (CNS). The classical and alternate pathways are two major pathways activated in neuroinflammatoryExpand

Transient contralateral rotation following unilateral substantia nigra lesion reflects susceptibility of the nigrostriatal system to exhaustion by amphetamine.
Following unilateral 6-OHDA induced SN lesion, a transient period of contralateral rotation has been reported to precede the predominant ipsilateral circling. In order to clarify the nature of thisExpand

Early detection of memory deficits and memory improvement with vaccinia virus complement control protein in an Alzheimer's disease model
Vaccinia virus complement control protein (VCP) inhibits both the classical and alternate complement pathways. In diseases such as traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Alzheimer's disease (AD),Expand

Modulation of anxiety behavior by intranasally administered vaccinia virus complement control protein and curcumin in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease.
Widespread neuroinflammation in the central nervous system (CNS) of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients, involving pro-inflammatory mediators such as complement components, might be responsible for ADExpand

Administration of Vaccinia Virus Complement Control Protein Shows Significant Cognitive Improvement in a Mild Injury Model
Previous studies have shown that traumatic mild brain injury in a rat model is accompanied by breakdown of the blood brain barrier and the accumulation of inflammatory cells. A therapeutic agent,Expand

Event-Related Potentials, Reaction Time, and Response Selection of Skilled and Less-Skilled Cricket Batsmen
The differences in P300 latency, P300 amplitude, response selection, and reaction time between skilled and less-skilled cricket batsmen have been investigated. Eight skilled and ten less-skilledExpand

Development of a mild prenatal stress rat model to study long term effects on neural function and survival
Early development of the brain’s neural circuitry has been shown to be vulnerable to high levels of circulating steroid hormones such as corticosterone. These steroid hormones are lipophylic and canExpand
