The bilateral infusion of CNQX (0.5 or 1.25 micrograms) into the amygdala or dorsal hippocampus 10 min prior to a retention test partially blocked the expression of stepdown inhibitory avoidance in rats 24 h after training. When infused into both the amygdala and the hippocampus at a dose of 0.5 microgram. CNQX caused a complete blockade of the expression(More)
Experiments using localized infusions into selected brain structures of agonists and antagonists of various synaptic receptors, given before or after behavioral training, have led to the following conclusions: (1) Memory is processed shortly after training in the amygdala, medial septum and hippocampus by glutamatergic NMDA and AMPA receptors activated in(More)
Bilateral infusion of CNQX (0.5 microgram) into the amygdala and the dorsal hippocampus prior to a retention test blocked the expression of step-down inhibitory avoidance in rats 6, 13, or 20 days after training. Retention test performance recovered 90 min after the infusions. Pretest intrahippocampal CNQX (0.5 microgram) blocked the expression of(More)
Rats were bilaterally implanted with cannulae in the entorhinal cortex, amygdala, and hippocampus; after recovery, they were trained in a step-down inhibitory avoidance task and tested for retention 24 h later. Muscimol (0.03 microgram) or D-amino-5-phosphonovalerate (5.0 micrograms) infused in the entorhinal cortex 20 min prior to training inhibited the(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate possible pathologies associated with hyperechogenicity of thalamic vessels (HETV), which are found on brain ultrasounds (BUS), as well as to observe the frequency of their occurrence. METHODS The sample was composed of 206 preterm newborn infants at Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre (HCPA) from July 1998(More)
