Effects of an antidepressant mixture on the brain serotonin and predation behavior of hybrid striped bass
Results from the present study indicate that antidepressants have the potential to be additive on the biochemical and individual scale, which necessitates more robust analysis of antidepressant mixtures and their potential to act together in low concentration scenarios.
Exposure to ultraviolet radiation late in development increases the toxicity of oil to mahi‐mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) embryos
Evidence is provided that the developmental window when UV co-exposure occurs has a significant effect on the degree of photo-induced toxicity of oil and that UV co -exposure may exacerbate long-term cardiac effects in developing fish.
Antidepressant Effects in Hybrid Striped Bass: Moving from External Exposures to Internal Doses
Hybrid striped bass were exposed to bupropion, a norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitor antidepressant, to understand if alteration of the dopaminergic neurotransmitter concentrations in the HSB would alter a predator’s ability to capture prey.
Photo‐induced toxicity following exposure to crude oil and ultraviolet radiation in 2 Australian fishes
Yellowtail kingfish embryos co-exposed to oil and full-spectrum sunlight exhibited decreased hatching success and a higher incidence of cardiac arrhythmias, compared with filtered sunlight, which highlights the need for more studies investigating the effects of PAHs and photo-induced toxicity under environmental conditions relevant to Australia.
The effects of bupropion on hybrid striped bass brain chemistry and predatory behavior
Although bupropion altered the concentration of dopamine and many of the dopaminergic neurotransmitter metabolite concentrations in the brains on day 3 of the exposure, it did not alter the time to capture prey, suggesting that alteration of dopaminerential neurotransmitter concentrations inThe hybrid striped bass brain does not alter a predator's ability to captured prey.
Effects of Deepwater Horizon Oil on the Movement and Survival of Marsh Periwinkle Snails (Littoraria irrorata).
It is shown that oil impeded snail movement to clean habitat over a short distance and resulted in oil-exposure times that decreased survival.
