Corticosterone-induced inhibition of gliogenesis in rat hippocampus is counteracted by electroconvulsive seizures.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Volumetric changes and glial pathology have been reported in the central nervous system (CNS) of patients with depressive disorder, an illness often associated with elevated glucocorticoid levels. Glucocorticoids reduce gliogenesis in the adult rat CNS. Electroconvulsive seizure (ECS)-treatment, an animal model for the antidepressant treatment… (More)
