With the increasing applications of titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2 NPs) in industry and daily life, an increasing number of studies showed that TiO2 NPs may have negative effects on the respiratory or metabolic circle systems of organisms, while very few studies focused on the brain central nervous system (CNS). Synaptic plasticity in hippocampus is believed to be associated with certain high functions of CNS, such as learning and memory. Thus, in this study, we investigated the effects… CONTINUE READING
