Figures from this paper

Acute treatment with methotrexate induces hippocampal dysfunction in a mouse model of breast cancer
Fluoxetine reverses the memory impairment and reduction in proliferation and survival of hippocampal cells caused by methotrexate chemotherapy
TLDR
It is demonstrated that MTX induces an impairment in spatial working memory and has a negative long-term effect on hippocampal neurogenesis, which is counteracted by the co-administration of fluoxetine.
Fluoxetine prevents the cognitive and cellular effects of chemotherapy in the adult hippocampus
TLDR
It is demonstrated that MTX and 5-FU have more pronounced effects on spatial memory and hippocampal cell proliferation than CP in the CMF combination and these impairments can be reversed by fluoxetine in a mechanism of prevention but not recovery.
Metformin alleviates memory and hippocampal neurogenesis decline induced by methotrexate chemotherapy in a rat model.

Transient Improvement in Cognitive Function and Synaptic Plasticity in Rats Following Cancer Chemotherapy
TLDR
Despite toxicity accompanying chemotherapy, no evidence of impaired cognitive performance emerged after recovery from chemotherapy, and cyclophosphamide- and 5FU-treated rats showed significantly better maze performance compared with controls.
The effects of the anti-cancer drugs, methotrexate and 5-fluorouracil, on cognitive function in mice
Hippocampal brain amines in methotrexate-induced learning and memory deficit.
TLDR
Disruption of brain monoamines has been proposed as a cause of brain dysfunction from this chemotherapy, and that disruption may in turn involve cytotoxic effects of methotrexate on brain tissue may have therapeutic implications in the management of cancer conditions, particularly in childhood lymphoblastic leukemia.
An animal model to detect the neuropsychological toxicity of anticancer agents.
TLDR
It is shown that rats learn about environmental events more slowly following neonatal administration of methotrexate, which may help detect and avoid antineoplastic agents that produce severe cognitive defects in childhood cancer patients.
Radiation-Induced Cognitive Impairments are Associated with Changes in Indicators of Hippocampal Neurogenesis
TLDR
It is shown that the Barnes maze is particularly sensitive for the detection of radiation-induced cognitive deficits in young adult mice and the significant loss of proliferating SGZ cells and their progeny suggests a contributory role of reduced neurogenesis in the pathogenesis of radiation -induced cognitive impairments.
CNS progenitor cells and oligodendrocytes are targets of chemotherapeutic agents in vitro and in vivo
TLDR
Identifying neural populations at risk during any cancer treatment is of great importance in developing means of reducing neurotoxicity and preserving quality of life in long-term survivors, and the strong correlations between in vitro and in vivo analyses indicate that the same approaches used to identify the reported toxicities can also provide rapid in vitro screens for analyzing new therapies and discovering means of achieving selective protection or targeted killing.
Neurogenesis may relate to some but not all types of hippocampal‐dependent learning
TLDR
The results combined with previous ones suggest that neurogenesis may be associated with the formation of some but not all types of hippocampal‐dependent memories.
An experimental study of radiation-induced cognitive dysfunction in an adult rat model.
TLDR
It is indicated that radiation-induced cognitive dysfunction can precede morphological changes in the brain or that they arise without them.
Acute high‐dose methotrexate neurotoxicity in the rat
TLDR
A model of acute high‐dose methotrexate neurotoxicity in the rat characterized by a profound dose‐dependent depression of cerebral glucose metabolism in association with behavioral and electroencephalographc abnormalities is described.
