There is evidence that BDNF influences the birth of granule cells in the dentate gyrus, which is one of the few areas of the brain that demonstrates neurogenesis throughout life. However, studies to date have not examined this issue directly. To do so, we compared the effects of BDNF, phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), or bovine serum albumin (BSA) on(More)
Thyroid hormones are necessary for brain development. gamma-Amino-butyric acid (GABA)ergic interneurons comprise the bulk of local inhibitory circuitry in brain, many of which contain the calcium binding protein, parvalbumin (PV). A previous report indicated that severe postnatal hypothyroidism reduces PV immunoreactivity (IR) in rat neocortex. We examined(More)
