Synaptic mechanisms were studied ex vivo in the aged rat hippocampus, using a slice preparation and intracellular electrophysiological recordings of the CA1 pyramidal neurons. A dramatic depression of the slow cholinergic excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP) and of the slow, GABAB-mediated inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP) were observed. These(More)
Alterations in hippocampal circuitry may underly age-related learning and memory impairment. We showed in a previous study that the GABAB-mediated slow inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP) induced in CA1 pyramidal neurons by electrical stimulation of stratum radiatum, is depressed in the hippocampus of the aged rat. This could be due to alterations in(More)
The anatomy of pathways containing the calcium binding protein calretinin was investigated in the forebrain of the rat, using a combination of immunohistochemical and retrograde tract tracing techniques. Numerous well identified pathways do contain calretinin, whereas others do not. Pathways arising from the substantia nigra/ventral tegmental area, the(More)
The regional distribution of [125I]galanin specific binding sites was determined in young (three- to four-month-old), 14-15-month-old and aged (26-27-month-old) male Sprague-Dawley rats, previously tested for their performances in the Morris water-maze task, using the radioautographic method on brain sections. A significant increase in specific binding was(More)
The regional distribution of 125I-galanin specific binding sites was determined by radioautography on brain sections in young (3- to 4-month-old) and aged (26- to 27-month-old) male Sprague-Dawley rats, previously tested for their performances in the Morris water maze task. In aged rats, a significant increase in specific binding was observed in piriform,(More)
The calcium binding protein parvalbumin is present in GABAergic neurons of the medial septum-diagonal band of Broca (MS-DBB) region that project to the hippocampal formation. We examined the distribution pattern, the number, and the morphological features of the parvalbumin-containing cells (parv+) in the MS-DBB region of 2- to 3-, 8- to 9-, 15- to 16-, and(More)
