The acute effects of electrical stimulation of the hypothalamus on energy expenditure as measured by indirect calorimetry were investigated in 20 unanaesthetized rats. Thirty sec of stimulation increased both O2 consumption and respiratory quotient (R.Q.). The largest magnitude hypermetabolic response (39% mean peak increase in O2 consumption) was produced(More)
Estradiol protects against hippocampal damage and some learning impairments resulting from transient global ischemia in rats. Here, we seek to validate a mouse model of transient global ischemia and evaluate the effects of estradiol on ischemia-induced hippocampal damage and behavioral impairments. Female C57Bl6/J mice were ovariectomized and implanted with(More)
