Deprived of habitual running, rats downregulate BDNF and TrkB messages in the brain.


To study possible effects of physical training on the expression of neurotrophic factors and their receptors in the brain, we used a rat strain (spontaneously hypertensive rat, SHR), known to spontaneously run up to 20 km/night. We show that such long-distance running affects the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and TrkB system in hippocampus, and… (More)
