The influence of extremely low frequency magnetic field on rats behavior (working memory, learning, social activity) was examined. Rats were exposed to magnetic fields at three different conditions: exposure 1-50 Hz, 46 mT; DC 65 mTl; exposure II-50 Hz, 46 mTl; DC 14-17 mTl; Exposure III-sham. Field related changes were observed after exposure I: the(More)
Most animal experiments in neurosciences require anesthesia of the experimental animal. For fMRI experiments most neuroscientist would prefer (I) a recoverable anesthesia that would (II) allow strong BOLD responses which are (III) reproducibly obtained for the same animal in repetitive experiments. Strong BOLD responses are particularly needed if weak(More)
The ribosome as a complex molecular machine undergoes significant conformational changes while synthesizing a protein molecule. Molecular dynamics simulations have been used as complementary approaches to X-ray crystallography and cryoelectron microscopy, as well as biochemical methods, to answer many questions that modern structural methods leave unsolved.(More)
Using a method of static simulation, a series of erythromycin A analogs was designed with aldehyde functions introduced instead of one of the methyl substituents in the 3′-N-position of the antibiotic that was potentially capable of forming a covalent bond with an amino group of one of the nucleotide residues of the 23S rRNA in the ribosomal exit tunnel.(More)
Rats behaviour in the "open field" changed in 2 hrs after a single episode of hypoglycaemia was abolished with glucose whereas no changes occurred in their stereotyped behaviour and intraspecies interaction. In 24 hrs quantitative parameters of the "open field" behaviour normalised although the behaviour still had an altered structure. At the same time,(More)
We studied the influence of social isolation at the age of 2 months on zoosocial behaviour of mixed-bred male rats with different paw preference. Paw preference was determined in the test of reaching for food in the horizontal tube. The level of aggression but not sociability was found to increase significantly in dextral and ambidextrous late isolants. In(More)
It was found that intraspecific behaviour of male rats having been transformed in consequence of breeding under the conditions of social isolation could be modified afterwards by an experience of social contacts. Long-term keeping the isolatedly bred rats with their mates in adulthood decreases the level of intraspecific sociability but does not affect the(More)
It is shown, that rats, bred in conditions of intraspecies isolation are able to competition for water in the kin group, having usual experience of intraspecies intercourse. At the same level of drinking motivation in conditions of competition for water the intraspecies activity is significantly higher in rats, bred in isolation in comparison with grouped(More)
By means of the analysis of probabilistic ethological structures of the intraspecies rats behaviour in the test "stranger-resident" and by the method of isolated destruction of the frontal cortex or the left and right hemispheres,--it is established that the frontal cortex of the left hemisphere regulates the intraspecies sociability and keeps it on a(More)
