Like in other organs, iron in the brain plays an important role in various biological processes. Previous studies have shown that systemic iron homeostasis in mammalians was changed under specific stress conditions. The present study aimed to investigate effects of stress on brain iron homeostasis in rats using a foot-shock stress model. Young adult male Sprague–Dawley rats were randomly assigned to foot-shock stress group subjected to 30 min of cutaneous foot-shock (0.80 mA, 1 pulse/s, 300 ms… CONTINUE READING
