Epilepsy is a disorder characterised by recurrent seizures and molecular events, including the activation of early expression genes and the post-translational modifications of functional proteins. These events lead to changes in neurogenesis, mossy fibre sprouting, network reorganisation and neuronal death. The role of these events is currently a matter of(More)
NMDA and AMPA receptors are thought to be responsible for Ca++ influx during glutamate-induced excitotoxicity and, therefore, hippocampal neuronal death. We assessed whether excitotoxicity induced by neonatal treatment with monosodium glutamate in rats at postnatal age of 1, 3, 5, and 7 modifies the hippocampal expression of the NMDAR subunit NR1 and the(More)
Erythropoietin in the nervous system is a potential neuroprotective factor for cerebral ischemic damage due to specific-binding to the erythropoietin receptor, which is associated with survival mechanisms. However, the role of its receptor is unclear. Thus, this work assessed whether a low dose (500UI/Kg) of intranasal recombinant human erythropoietin(More)
