Long-term neuroplastic changes in dentate gyrus (DG) have been reported after seizure induction and were shown to contribute to epitogenesis of epilepsy. These changes include increased number of newborn granule cells, sprouted mossy fibers, granule cell layer dispersion, etc. The aim of current study is to determine the acute progression of neuroplastic(More)
Vinpocetine is an inhibitor of phosphodiesterase type 1 (PDE1), which has been used for treating stroke for over 40 years. However, according to current clinical dosage and treatment period, its direct effect on memory is unclear. In this study, we investigated whether vinpocetine could reverse the scopolamine (SCO)-induced cognitive deficits in animals.(More)
To investigate the analgesic effect of intrathecally administered γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) transporter-1 inhibitor NO-711 on the sciatic nerve chronic constriction injury (CCI) rats. 5 days after intrathecal catheter placement, neuropathic pain model was established by CCI of sciatic nerve on rats. Withdrawal thresholds for mechanical allodynia and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of penehyclidine hydrochloride on glutamate (Glu)release and N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR)1 expression in hippocampus CA1 with global cerebral ischemia/reperfusion rats. METHODS Sixty male Wistar rats were randomly allocated into three groups; group A received sham operation; group B received(More)
AIM To observe the change of STR neuronal firing rates with high frequency stimulation of subthalamic nucleus in PD rats. METHODS A model of Parkinson's disease was induced by unilateral administration of 6-hydroxydopamine into right substantia nigra in rats. After the high-frequency stimulation to STN, the spontaneous firing rates of STR on normal and PD(More)
