Effect of chronic antidepressant or electroconvulsive shock treatment on mGLuR1a immunoreactivity expression in the rat hippocampus.

The effect of chronic imipramine (IMI) or electroconvulsive shock (ECS) treatment on the expression of group Ia metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluR1a) was studied in the rat hippocampus by an immunohistochemical method, using a specific monoclonal antibody. It was found that both those treatments increased the number of mGluR1a immunoreactive neurons in… CONTINUE READING
