OBJECTIVES The goals were to investigate how many subclinical seizures in full-term neonates with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) would be missed without continuous amplitude-integrated electroencephalography (aEEG) and whether immediate treatment of both clinical and subclinical seizures would result in a reduction in the total duration of seizures(More)
Field potentials were recorded in the dentate gyrus of freely-moving rats in a classical conditioning paradigm in which high-frequency stimulation of the perforant path served as a conditioned stimulus. Paired or unpaired perforant path stimulus-footshock presentations were given to animals engaged in a previously acquired food-motivated lever-pressing(More)
Alzheimer's disease is characterized by the presence of senile plaques in the brain, composed mainly of aggregated amyloid-beta peptide (Abeta), which plays a central role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease and is a potential target for therapeutic intervention. Amyloid plaques occur in an increasing number of brain structures during the progression(More)
Major learning events are typically followed by a period during which the number and/or duration of rapid-eye movement sleep episodes is increased. Processes critical to memory formation are thought to take place during this interval of 'enhanced' rapid-eye movement sleep. We therefore compared the capacity for long-term potentiation during rapid-eye(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to look for evidence based or scientific guidelines for selection of newborns with congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection that might benefit from treatment with ganciclovir. MATERIALS AND METHODS A literature search was conducted involving the MEDLINE database and the Cochrane Collaboration Library. Abstracts(More)
The possibility that post-trial stimulation of the mesencephalic reticular formation (m.r.f.) may modulate long-term potentiation (l.t.p.) at the perforant path to dentate granule cell synapses was studied in freely moving rats. Extracellular potentials evoked in the dentate gyrus by test pulses to the perforant path were recorded before and at various(More)
Neuronal activity, recorded in the dorsal hippocampus (CA3) during classical conditioning, was studied in rats receiving mild post-trial stimulation of the mesencephalic reticular formation. Hippocampal multi-unit activity increased in response to an auditory signal (conditioned stimulus) after pairing of the signal with a footshock (unconditioned(More)
Multiunit activity recorded in both the dentate gyrus and the entorhinal cortex during classical conditioning was studied in freely moving rats receiving a mild post-trial stimulation of the mesencephalic reticular formation. Dentate multiunit activity progressively increased in response to an auditory signal (conditioned stimulus) after pairing the signal(More)
