Deficits in LTP and recognition memory in the genetically hypertensive rat are associated with decreased expression of neurotrophic factors and their receptors in the dentate gyrus.


We have previously reported that a genetically hypertensive strain of Wistar rat (GH), is deficient in nerve growth factor (NGF) and Trk receptors in dentate gyrus and that these deficits are accompanied by impaired expression of long-term potentiation (LTP) in perforant path-granule cell synapses. Here we confirm this deficit in LTP and report that this… (More)
