Age-related changes in parvalbumin-positive interneurons in the striatum, but not in the sensorimotor cortex in dystonic brains of the dt(sz) mutant hamster.


In the dt(sz) hamster, a model of paroxysmal dystonia, an age-dependent increase in the activity of striatal projection neurons has been hypothesized to be based on a deficit of striatal parvalbumin-immunoreactive (PV(+)) interneurons at an age of most marked expression of dystonia (30-40 days of life). In the present study, the spontaneous age-dependent… (More)
