Effect of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) [22: 6(n-3)]-fortified Chlorella oil fraction on radial maze performance was studied in aged mice. Male ICR mice aged 9 months were fed a diet containing 2 g DHA-fortified Chlorella oil fraction/100 g diet or normal diet (Control group) for 2 months. Two months after the start of feeding, the mice were tested for learning ability related to 2 types of memory, reference memory and working memory, with the partially (4 of 8) baited eight-arm radial maze… Expand
Arachidonic acid improves aged rats' spatial cognition
TLDR
The present study suggests that AA administration to aged animals can alleviate age-related deficits in spatial cognition and regression analysis conducted on AA composition and place task performance showed a significant correlation between these two parameters. Expand
Supplementation of fenugreek with choline–docosahexaenoic acid attenuates menopause induced memory loss, BDNF and dendritic arborization in ovariectomized rats
TLDR
Results are demonstrating that FG with choline–DHA supplementation can be an alternative for estrogen replacement therapy to modulate menopause-induced learning and memory deficits. Expand
Omega-3 fatty acids and rodent behavior.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and essential fatty acids
  • 2006
TLDR
It is suggested that a fruitful area for future investigations of functional alterations related to brain DHA status will be the delineation of the factors underlying changes in performance in behavioral tasks, which affects total locomotor and exploratory parameters. Expand
Short-term administration of omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil results in increased transthyretin transcription in old rat hippocampus
TLDR
The beneficial effects of fish oil might be common to other agents, i.e., induce TTR expression, like nicotine and Ginkgo biloba extract, as evidenced by microarray analysis and confirmed by real-time quantitative RT-PCR. Expand
Host Defensive and Pharmacological Study of Chlorella Vulgaris Strain CK
TLDR
The administration of Chlorella may be useful in preventing gastrointestinal absorption and in promoting the excretion of dioxin already absorbed in tissues, as well as studies of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-rich ChloreLLA and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) between 2000 and 2002 were reviewed. Expand
Fish Oil Supplementation Prevents Age-Related Memory Decline: Involvement of Nuclear Hormone Receptors
TLDR
It is postulate that LC n-3 PUFA by binding to retinoid X receptors (RXRs) and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) modulate synaptic plasticity-associated gene expression and therefore maintain memory performance during aging. Expand
Curcumin boosts DHA in the brain: Implications for the prevention of anxiety disorders.
TLDR
It is suggested that curcumin enhances DHA synthesis and elevates levels of enzymes involved in the synthesis of DHA such as FADS2 and elongase 2 in both liver and brain tissues, resulting in elevated brain DHA content. Expand
A diet high in omega-3 fatty acids does not improve or protect cognitive performance in Alzheimer’s transgenic mice
TLDR
The results suggest that diets high in omega-3 fatty acids, or use of fish oil supplements (DHA+EPA), will not protect against AD, at least in high-risk individuals, however, normal individuals conceivably could derive cognitive benefits from high Omega-3 intake if it corrects an elevation in the brain level of n-6 fatty acids as a result.

Potentiation of ethanol in spatial memory deficits induced by some benzodiazepines.
TLDR
All the short-acting benzodiazepines used in the study showed potentiation by ethanol in spatial memory deficits in mice. Expand
The modification of plant oil composition via metabolic engineering--better nutrition by design.
TLDR
This article will consider how new technologies can help speed up and direct the development of desired traits in transgenic oilseeds and how manipulating triacylglycerol structure can further enhance the nutritional value of 'designer' oils. Expand

Chronic administration of docosahexaenoic acid improves reference memory-related learning ability in young rats
TLDR
It is suggested that chronic administration of docosahexaenoic acid is conducive to the improvement of reference memory-related learning ability, and that the docoshexaenosic acid/arachidonic acid ratio in the hippocampus or the cerebral cortex, or both, may be an indicator of learning ability. Expand
Intakes of dietary docosahexaenoic acid ethyl ester and egg phosphatidylcholine improve maze-learning ability in young and old mice.
TLDR
The results suggest that the intake of DHA-EE and the egg-PC diet effectively enhances maze-learning ability and brain functions in old mice. Expand
Effect of dietary alpha-linolenate/linoleate balance on brain lipid compositions and learning ability of rats.
TLDR
The dietary alpha-linolenate/linoleate balance influenced the (n-3)/(n-6) balance of polyenoic fatty acids differently among brain phospholipids, resulting in higher response ratios in the perilla oil groups. Expand
Effect of the long-term feeding of dietary lipids on the learning ability, fatty acid composition of brain stem phospholipids and synaptic membrane fluidity in adult mice: a comparison of sardine oil diet with palm oil diet
TLDR
The results suggest that the adult mice fed on the sardine oil diet for a long period maintain higher levels of docosahe xaenoic acid in brain phospholipids, synaptic membrane fluidity and maze-learning ability than animals feeding on the palm oil diet. Expand
Uptake and Accumulation of Exogenous Docosahexaenoic Acid by Chlorella
TLDR
It seems that the structure of the cell wall did not affect the uptake of DHA into the Chlorella cells, and DHA was found by electron microscopy in the cells in oil droplets. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that fish oil may be able to regulate the brain lipid composition and LDH activity in aged rats. Expand
