Dopaminergic (DAergic) neurons in the ventral tegmental area express both KCNQ2 and KCNQ4 channels, which opening is expected to decrease neuronal excitability via neuronal hyperpolarization. Since psychotic symptoms are believed to be associated with an increased excitability of dopamine (DA) cells in the mesencephalon, KCNQ channels might represent a new(More)
Cognitive deficits are a major clinical unmet need in schizophrenia. The psychotomimetic drug phencyclidine (PCP) is widely applied in rodents to mimic symptoms of schizophrenia, including cognitive deficits. Previous studies have shown that sub-chronic PCP induces an enduring episodic memory deficit in female Lister Hooded rats in the novel object(More)
Schizophrenia is a complex psychiatric disorder comprised of three main classes of symptoms: positive, negative and cognitive symptoms. Currently, no approved treatment exists for the cognitive symptoms. There is thus a great need for research aiming at identifying novel targets for treatment of this indication. Several neurotransmitter systems are affected(More)

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to measure the apparent digestibility of fat and the transit time upon addition of whole sunflower seeds (SU) or flaxseeds (FL) to rye breads consumed as part of a whole diet. METHOD In a randomized crossover study, gross intake and faecal excretion of fat and energy were measured in 11 young healthy men aged 24.6+/-2.7(More)
