Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), a condition occurring in some children of mothers who have consumed alcohol during pregnancy, is characterized by physical deformities and learning and memory deficits. The chick hippocampus, whose functions are controlled by interneurons expressing calcium-binding proteins parvalbumin (PV) and calretinin (CR), is involved in(More)
An increasing large body of research on Parkinson's disease (PD) has focused on the understanding of the mechanisms behind the potential neuro protection offered by antioxidants and iron chelating agents. In this study, the protective effect of the bioflavonoid quercetin on 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced model of PD was investigated. PD was induced by a(More)
Studies were performed to bring out a serotoninergic involvement in physostigmine tremor, hitherto known to be working via the cholinergic system. 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) was estimated fluorimetrically after isolation on Sephadex G-10 and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) was assayed spectrophotometrically. The dose-dependent tremor was quantified by a(More)
BACKGROUND Chlorpyrifos (CPF), a commonly used pesticide worldwide, has been reported to produce neurobehavioural changes. Dermal exposure to CPF is common in industries and agriculture. This study estimates changes in glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) expression in hippocampal regions and correlates with histomorphometry of neurons and serum(More)
The in BLOCKINuence of the exit boundary conditions (vanishing rst derivative of the velocity components and constant pressure) on the large eddy simulation of the fully developed turbulent channel ow has been investigated for equidistant and stretched grids at the channel exit. Results show that the chosen exit boundary conditions introduce some small(More)
Chlorpyrifos (CPF), an organophosphate pesticide inhibits acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and causes neuromuscular incoordination among children and elderly. The objectives of the present study were to compare the neurotoxic effects of dermal application of CPF on the cerebellum in the parameters of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) expression in young and(More)
Effect of chronic intake of alcohol and its subsequent withdrawal was studied in albino mice on the layers of neurons of the iso-cortex. Neuronal density per mm2 of section in different layers of iso-cortex was counted and compared in 3 groups of animals (control, ethanol fed and withdrawal). Qualitative changes on nissl granules of neurons and myelinated(More)

In this paper, matrices over semirings are investigated. This is done by introducing some examples of semirings and presenting some results on regular and invertible matrix semirings. These include conditions for regularity and invertibility of matrices over semirings as generalization of corresponding results on matrices over rings. Examples and results(More)
Dermal absorption of chlorpyrifos (CPF), an organophosphate (OP) pesticide, is important because of its popular use. Stress has been reported to exacerbate neurotoxic effects of certain OP pesticides; however, quantitative studies to corroborate this are not reported. This study correlates the changes in acetylcholinesterase (AChE) levels and neuronal(More)
Behavioural and neurochemical effects of acute 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) treatment in mice have been studied in order to determine the change in the neurotransmitter profile of the following areas of the brain: substantia nigra (SN), nucleus caudatus putamen (NCP), limbic system (LS; tuberculum olfactorium and nucleus accumbens),(More)
