In vivo microdialysis sampling of the olfactory bulbs of awake rats on PND 3 revealed that olfactory stimulation alone does not alter extracellular norepinephrine (NE) levels. Tactile stimulation that is designed to mimic maternal interactions with the young does increase bulb NE and the combined odor and tactile stimulation further increases NE levels.(More)
Neonatal rats acquire an olfactory preference following daily exposure to an odor that is accompanied by tactile stimulation. In the present study, we determined the neurobehavioral responses of pups trained and tested with odors of either the same or different concentration. On postnatal day (PND) 1-18, all animals were exposed for 10 min/day to either(More)
BACKGROUND Despite therapeutic hypothermia 30-70% of newborns with moderate or severe hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy will die or survive with significant long-term impairments. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the first days of life is being used for early identification of these infants and end of life decisions are relying more and more on it. The(More)
GDP-fucose:asialofetuin fucosyltransferase activity was studied during the postnatal development of rat brain. The enzymatic activity was very low during the first days of life and reached a maximum level around 21 days. This increase in enzymatic activity was characterized by two periods of rapid change. A rapid increase occurred between 3 and 7 days after(More)
