The medial amygdala (MeA) has receptors for gonadal hormones and modulates reproductive behaviors in rats. Adult male and female rats were used for the immunodetection, a less accurate technique, and the immunohistochemistry for the astrocytic marker glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) in the anterior and posterior MeA. Both procedures were done using(More)
PURPOSE The impact on patients' health of radiopharmaceuticals in nuclear medicine diagnostics has not until now been evaluated systematically in a European context. Therefore, as part of the EU-funded Project PEDDOSE.NET ( www.peddose.net ), we review and summarize the(More)
A wealth of evidence implicates the BDNF-TRKB system in the therapeutic effects of antidepressant drugs (ADs) on mood disorders. However, little is known about the involvement of this system in the panicolytic property also exerted by these compounds. In the present study we evaluated the participation of the BDNF-TRKB system of the dorsal periaqueductal(More)
Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is the major component of intermediate glial filaments in the central nervous system of many vertebrates and invertebrates. In vertebrates, this protein is mainly expressed in mature astrocytes and provides structural cell stability. The highly conserved structure and glial specificity of this protein have allowed(More)
