Prenatal Protein Malnutrition Affects the Density of GABAergic Interneurons During Hippocampus Development in Rats.
TLDR
It is concluded that prenatal hypoprotein malnutrition produces changes at 30 days in the fascia dentata and results suggest that prenatal malnutrition also produces a delay in the programmed chronology of gamma-aminobutyric acid interneurons.
Prenatal Protein Malnutrition Affects the Density of GABAergic Interneurons During Hippocampus Development in Rats.
TLDR
Results suggest that prenatal malnutrition also produces a delay in the programmed chronology of gamma-aminobutyric acid interneurons, and this effect may be evidenced in the long term, despite postnatal rehabilitation.
Effect of prenatal protein malnutrition on numbers of neurons in the principal cell layers of the adult rat hippocampal formation
TLDR
The effect of nutritional deprivation on the neuronal population appears to be different in pre‐ and postnatal malnutrition, both dietary paradigms highlight the vulnerability of key components of the hippocampal trisynaptic circuit, which is an essential circuit for memory and learning.
Effect of Protein Malnutrition on Efferent Projections of Amygdala to the Hippocampus
TLDR
The findings showed that different nuclei of amygdala (Basolateral, Cortical and Medial) send projections to CA1 region of hippocampus; Among, them basolateral nuclei group send the most projections.
Prenatal protein malnutrition alters the proportion but not numbers of parvalbumin-immunoreactive interneurons in the hippocampus of the adult Sprague-Dawley rat
TLDR
Examination of the effect of prenatal protein malnutrition on numbers of parvalbumin-immunoreactive (PV-IR) GABAergic interneurons, which are important for perisomatic inhibition of hippocampal pyramidal neurons, demonstrated that prenatal malnutrition did not affect the number of PV-IR interneURons in the hippocampus.
Effect of Prenatal Protein Malnutrition on Long-Term Potentiation and BDNF Protein Expression in the Rat Entorhinal Cortex after Neocortical and Hippocampal Tetanization
TLDR
Impaired capacity of the EC of prenatally malnourished rats to develop LTP and to increase BDNF levels during adulthood may be an important factor contributing to deficits in learning performance having adult prenatALLY malnoursished animals.
Does the enriched environment alter memory capacity in malnourished rats by modulating BDNF expression?
TLDR
Evidence from the scientific literature suggests that the mechanisms of synaptic plasticity in the hippocampus of adult animals are influenced by malnutrition and EE, and these alterations may involve the participation of BDNF as a key regulator in memory processes in the adult animal hippocampus.
Maternal Protein Restriction and Effects on Behavior and Memory in Offspring
TLDR
The relationship between gestational protein restriction and the structural changes in key regions of the central nervous system that regulates memory processes and learning are discussed.

Prenatal malnutrition and development of the brain
Electrophysiological properties of rat hippocampal principal cells are unaltered by prenatal protein malnutrition
TLDR
It is demonstrated that prenatal protein malnutrition does not result in significant alterations of the cellular physiological properties of these two types of principal neurons in the adult rat hippocampus.
Effects of Prenatal Protein Malnutrition on Hippocampal Long-Term Potentiation in Freely Moving Rats
TLDR
Results indicate that short duration bursts are more effective in inducing maximal PSA enhancement in normally nourished rats than longer duration stimulus bursts, and suggest a preferential enhancement of GABAergic inhibitory modulation of granule cell excitability may result from the prenatal dietary insult.
Children and famine: long‐term impact on development
TLDR
It is concluded that, under conditions of famine, it is important to include early and comprehensive interventions to reverse not only medical conditions resulting from malnutrition, but also cognitive and behavioral deficits arising from famine.
