Mice were exposed to diacetylmorphine (heroin) or phencyclidine (PCP) prenatally or neonatally. At a later age, they were tested for hippocampus-related behavioral deficits and concomitant alterations in the septohippocampal cholinergic innervations. Actually, this is an application of the previously established phenobarbital neuroteratogenicity model to(More)
Lexical-semantic knowledge is a core language component that undergoes prolonged development throughout childhood and is therefore highly amenable to developmental studies. Most previous lexical-semantic functional MRI (fMRI) studies have been limited to single-word or word-pair tasks, outside a sentence context. Our objective was to investigate the(More)
The long-term consequences of forebrain ischemia include delayed Parkinson's syndrome. This study revealed delayed neurodegeneration in the substantia nigra 8 weeks after 12.5 minutes of global ischemia in rat brain. Following neuronal loss of 30-40% in central and dorsolateral striatum at day 3, neuronal damage in the substantia nigra (SN) was assessed at(More)
Being able to stop (or inhibit) an action rapidly as in a stop-signal task (SST) is an essential human ability. Previous studies showed that when a pre-stimulus cue warned of the possible need to stop a response in an upcoming trial, participants' response time (RT) increased if the subsequent trial required a "go" response (i.e., "go" RT cost) relative to(More)
