BACKGROUND Treatment of peripheral nerve injuries focuses on lesion type, from expectant to interfascicular repair. Many experiments have been undertaken using different factors to facilitate better or faster nerve stump growth: nerve growth factor (NGF), plaque growth factor (PGF), hyaluronic acid, leukemic inhibiting factor, and GABA, etc. Glycine is an(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this work was to analyze the effect of carbamazepine (CBZ) on sleep patterns and on "head and body shakes" and to determine the role of serotonin (5-HT) in a model of kainic-induced seizures. Thirty male Wistar rats (280-300 g) were used for polygraphic sleep recording. After a basal recording, the rats were allocated into three(More)
BACKGROUND Prenatal protein malnutrition disrupts the pattern of maturation and development of the hippocampus and its neuroanatomy and increases inhibition of the granular cell layer of the fascia dentata. If local gamma-aminobutyric acid inter-neurons are partly responsible for inhibition of the hippocampus, it is reasonable to assume that there may be an(More)
Carbamazepine produces changes in the auditory pathway of Wistar rats ABSTRACT Background. Different results have been reported by various authors in studies regarding the impact of the (carbam-azepine) CBZ on the auditory evoked responses. Objective. To evaluate the changes in auditory pathway at different sound intensities with CBZ at doses 30 mg/kg, in(More)
BACKGROUND Different results have been reported by various authors in studies regarding the impact of the (carbamazepine) CBZ on the auditory evoked responses. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the changes in auditory pathway at different sound intensities with CBZ at doses 30 mg/kg, in latencies and interpeak-interval brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEPs) in(More)
After injury of the central nervous system (CNS) in higher vertebrates, neurons neither grow nor reconnect with their targets because their axons or dendrites cannot regenerate within the injured site. In the CNS, the signal from the environment regulating neurite regeneration is not exclusively generated by one molecular group. This signal is generated by(More)
The aim of this work was to analyze the effect of oxcarbazepine (OXC) on sleep patterns, "head and body shakes" and monoamine neurotransmitters level in a model of kainic-induced seizures. Adult Wistar rats were administered kainic acid (KA), OXC or OXC + KA. A polysomnographic study showed that KA induced animals to stay awake for the whole initial 10 h.(More)
AIMS In children with articulatory defects it is important to evaluate the central auditory level. We compared the results of the interwave intervals of brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) at 80 dB SPL (sound pressure level) and the latencies of the waves of long latency auditory evoked potentials (LLAEP) (vertex) in 5-year-old children with(More)
INTRODUCTION In this study, a new dichotic digit test in Spanish (NDDTS) was applied in order to identify auditory laterality. We also evaluated body laterality and spatial location using the Subirana test. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Both the dichotic test and the Subirana test for body laterality and spatial location were applied in a group of 40 children with(More)
