A degradation of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic (DA-ergic) system is the key component of pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD). Initial clinical symptoms appear 20-30 years after the onset of neurodegeneration, at a 70% DA depletion in the striatum and a 50% loss of nigral DA-ergic neurons. Low efficacy of the therapy might be improved if preclinical(More)
We studied the in vivo effects of the peptide anxiolytic selank (0.3 mg/kg) on the behavioral parameters of the syndrome of alcohol withdrawal and the neurochemical indices of the serotonergic system in the brain structures in ex vivo experiments in outbred rats with a preference for a 10% solution of ethanol. We found that a single administration of selank(More)
Degeneration of dopaminergic (DAergic) neurons of the nigrostriatal system is the key stage in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease. The first symptoms of this disease are observed after degeneration of 70-80% neurons, which occurs over 20-30 years. The clinical stage of Parkinson's disease begins after this period. Late diagnostics of Parkinson's(More)
We studied the effects of irradiation with protons at doses of 1 and 2 Gy in the Bragg Peak with an energy of 170 MeV on learning, recall of skills, and concentration of monoamines and their metabolites in the prefrontal cortex, nucleus accumbens, hypothalamus, striatum, and hippocampus of rats. In the T-maze, we performed discriminant learning with food(More)
Rats were irradiated with carbon ions (12C) in a Nuklotron accelerator. The irradiation dose was 1 Gy, the energy of the ions was 500 MeV/nuclon, and the linear energy transmission (LET) was 10.6 keV/micron. The animals were decapitated 1 day after irradiation. We isolated the prefrontal cortex, nucleus accumbens, hypothalamus, hippocampus, and striatum,(More)
We studied the effects of models of imponderability (Antiorthostatic Hypodynamia, AH) and overload (AH + centrifugation) on discriminant learning in mice and the concentrations of monoamines and their metabolites in several brain structures. The experimental conditions accelerated the formation of the locomotor behavioral stereotype, which underlies(More)
The effect of heptapeptide selank on the content of neurotransmitter monoamines and its metabolites in the brain structures of BALB/C and C57Bl/6 line mice under conditions of the open-field test were studied. Significant interstrain differences in the content of norepinephrine (NE), dopamine (DA), serotonin (5-HT) as well as in the levels of their(More)
Planning of the deep-space exploration missions raises a number of questions on the radiation protection of astronauts. One of the medical concerns is associated with exposure of a crew to highly energetic particles of galactic cosmic rays. Among many other health disorders, irradiation with these particles has a substantial impact on the central nervous(More)
The influence of perspective anti-migraine drug tropoxin on the content of monoamines and related metabolites in Wistar rat brain structures, including frontal cortex (FC), hypothalamus, nucleus accumbens (NA), striatum, and hippocampus, has been studied using HPLC/ED technique. Tropoxin (10 mg/kg) induced a 30% decrease (p < 0.05) in dopamine (DA) level in(More)
