Mechanisms of recovery following unilateral labyrinthectomy: a review
This paper reviews the literature on the mechanisms responsible for the behavioural recovery which occurs following unilateral labyrinthectomy (UL), UL causes a syndrome of ocular motor and posturalExpand

The CNS effects of Ginkgo biloba extracts and ginkgolide B
Ginkgo biloba extracts such as EGb-761 have been suggested to have a multitude of beneficial effects on CNS function, from enhancing cognitive function in dementia to facilitating recovery from acuteExpand

Expression of the cannabinoid CB2 receptor in the rat cerebellum: An immunohistochemical study
Reports of cannabinoid CB2 receptor protein in the brain have been ambiguous. We therefore tested for CB2 immunoreactivity in the rat brain using immunofluorescence. We detected CB2 labeling in fineExpand

Neuronal activity in the contralateral medial vestibular nucleus of the guinea pig following unilateral labyrinthectomy
The recovery of normal ocular motor and postural behavior following unilateral labyrinthectomy is termed vestibular compensation and it has been attributed to the return of normal resting activity toExpand

Long-Term Effects of Permanent Vestibular Lesions on Hippocampal Spatial Firing
The hippocampus is thought to be important for spatial representation processes that depend on the integration of both self-movement and allocentric cues. The vestibular system is a particularlyExpand

Bilateral peripheral vestibular lesions produce long-term changes in spatial learning in the rat.
In order to investigate whether bilateral peripheral vestibular lesions cause long-term impairment of spatial learning, rats were tested in a reference memory radial arm maze learning task at least 5Expand

The neuroprotective properties of the Ginkgo biloba leaf: a review of the possible relationship to platelet-activating factor (PAF).
Ginkgo biloba (Ginkgoaceae) is an ancient Chinese tree which has been cultivated and held sacred for its health-promoting properties. There is substantial experimental evidence to support the viewExpand

Lesions of the vestibular system disrupt hippocampal theta rhythm in the rat.
The hippocampus has a major role in memory for spatial location. Theta is a rhythmic hippocampal EEG oscillation that occurs at approximately 8 Hz during voluntary movement and that may have someExpand
