Glutamatergic synaptic depression by synthetic amyloid β‐peptide in the medial septum
The medial septum/diagonal band region, which participates in learning and memory processes via its cholinergic and GABAergic projection to the hippocampus, is one of the structures affected by betaExpand

Electrophysiological and synaptic characterization of transplanted neurons in adult rat motor cortex.
Lesions in specific areas of the rat motor cortex generate deficits related to fine movement performance affecting the forelimb. We have previously shown that transplants of embryonic frontal cortexExpand

Early growth hormone (GH) treatment promotes relevant motor functional improvement after severe frontal cortex lesion in adult rats
A number of studies, in animals and humans, describe the positive effects of the growth hormone (GH) treatment combined with rehabilitation on brain reparation after brain injury. We examined theExpand

Electrophysiological study of prefrontal neurones of cats during a motor task
Abstract The prefrontal cortex is involved in many processes, some of which are related to motor activity such eye movements and speech. Experimental data exist that suggest that prefrontal corticalExpand

A method using diI to study the connectivity of cortical transplants
Carbocyanine DiI is described as a suitable fluorescent tracer to investigate the connectivity of cortical transplants. DiI was applied in 2 ways: in tissue previously fixed with aldehydes, and inExpand

Overexpression of kynurenic acid and 3-hydroxyanthranilic acid after rat traumatic brain injury
Using an immunohistochemical technique, we have studied the distribution of kynuneric acid (KYNA) and 3-hydroxyanthranilic acid (3-HAA) in a rat brain injury model (trauma). The study was carried outExpand

Electromyographic biofeedback training for reducing muscle pain and tension on masseter and temporal muscles: A pilot study
Background Due to the absence of agreement about an effective unified treatment for temporomandibular disorders, non-invasive therapies such as EMG-biofeedback generate a greater interest.Expand

Motor Improvement of Skilled Forelimb Use Induced by Treatment with Growth Hormone and Rehabilitation Is Dependent on the Onset of the Treatment after Cortical Ablation
We previously demonstrated that the administration of GH immediately after severe motor cortex injury, in rats, followed by rehabilitation, improved the functionality of the affected limb andExpand

Embryonic Amygdalar Transplants in Adult Rats with Motor Cortex Lesions: A Molecular and Electrophysiological Analysis
Transplants of embryonic nervous tissue ameliorate motor deficits induced by motor cortex lesions in adult animals. Restoration of lost brain functions has been recently shown in grafts of homotopicExpand

Factors Involved in the Functional Motor Recovery of Rats with Cortical Ablation after GH and Rehabilitation Treatment: Cortical Cell Proliferation and Nestin and Actin Expression in the Striatum and
Previously we demonstrated, in rats, that treatment with growth hormone (GH) and rehabilitation, carried out immediately after a motor cortical ablation, significantly improved the motor affectationExpand
