Mesotelencephalic dopamine (DA) pathways are exquisitely vulnerable to ischemic-anoxic insult. These insults are known to produce long-term derangements in DA signaling and have been hypothesized to contribute, at least in part, to pathologic behaviors such as cerebral palsy, schizophrenia, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Whether modest intermittent hypoxia, such as that encountered with repetitive apneas in premature infants, contributes to clinically significant… 
Perinatal Oxygen Restriction Does Not Result in Reduced Rat Frontal Cortex Synaptophysin Protein Levels at Adulthood as Opposed to Postmortem Findings in Schizophrenia
TLDR
It is suggested that reduced synaptophysin protein levels in schizophrenia patients’ postmortem brain do not result from perinatal oxygen deprivation and are in contrast to postmortem findings in schizophrenia.
Mitochondrial Complex I Subunits are Altered in Rats with Neonatal Ventral Hippocampal Damage but not in Rats Exposed to Oxygen Restriction at Neonatal Age
TLDR
Findings suggest abnormal complex I expression as a pathological characteristic of schizophrenia rather than an effect of medication is supported, and complex I alterations in schizophrenia-related neurodevelopmental rat models appear to be brain region and animal model dependent.
Clozapine or Haloperidol in rats prenatally exposed to methylazoxymethanol, a compound inducing entorhinal-hippocampal deficits, alter brain and blood neurotrophins' concentrations.
TLDR
The results showed that administration of Clozapine and Haloperidol causes significant changes in the concentration of NGF and BDNF in the brain and bloodstream of MAM-treated rats, indicating that these drugs may affect the synthesis and release of neurotrophins in the central nervous system and in the blood circulation.
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder after neonatal surgery: review of the pathophysiology and risk factors
TLDR
This paper will review the pathophysiological basis for ADHD in this population, based on the similarities between neonatal cardiac surgical patients and pre-term infants, and develop and assess new cerebral protective strategies during cardiac surgery.
Prior Hypoxia Exposure Enhances Murine Microglial Inflammatory Gene Expression in vitro Without Concomitant H3K4me3 Enrichment
TLDR
Evidence is provided that hypoxia pre-exposure could lead to persistent and aberrant inflammatory responses in the context of CNS disorders.
Prior hypoxia exposure enhances murine microglial inflammatory gene expression in vitro without concomitant H3K4me3 enrichment
TLDR
Evidence is provided that hypoxia pre-exposure could lead to persistent and aberrant inflammatory responses in the context of CNS disorders, including stroke and sleep-disordered breathing.
ROLE OF ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAM IN DIAGNOSIS OF ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPER ACTIVITY DISORDER
TLDR
There is increased low frequency activity and decreased high frequency activity in children with ADHD, this may aid as an indicator in the diagnosis of ADHD.
Gene-environment interaction and covariation in schizophrenia: the role of obstetric complications.
TLDR
Several mechanisms by which OCs impact on genetically susceptible brain regions are discussed, increasing constitutional vulnerability to neuromaturational events and stressors later in life (ie, adolescence), which may in turn contribute to triggering psychosis.
Associations between sleep-wake consolidation and language development in early childhood: a longitudinal twin study.
TLDR
Poor sleep consolidation during the first 2 years of life may be a risk factor for language learning, whereas good sleep consolidation may foster language learning through successive genetic and environmental influences.

Perinatal Distress Leads to Lateralized Medial Prefrontal Cortical Dopamine Hypofunction in Adult Rats
TLDR
Findings suggest a mechanism by which perinatal complications involving anoxia might contribute to the etiology of mental disorders that have been linked to disturbances in central DA transmission and lateralized PFC dysfunction.

TLDR
It is shown that both the indirect dopamine receptor agonist amphetamine and the direct agonists apomorphine and quinpirole inhibit locomotor activity in the DAT knockdown mice, leading to the hypothesis that a shift in the balance between dopamine auto and heteroreceptor function may contribute to the therapeutic effect of psychostimulants in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Effects of Hypoxic-Ischemic Brain Damage on Dopaminergic Markers in the Neonatal Rat: A Regional Autoradiographic Analysis
TLDR
Reduced D1 versus D2 receptor activation may underlie extrapyramidal movement disorders that appear as a consequence of perinatal hypoxic-ischemic insult.
Brain damage due to cerebral hypoxia/ischemia in the neonate: pathology and pharmacological modification.
TLDR
Partial protection, primarily in neonatal rats, has been produced by pretreatment with voltage-sensitive calcium channel antagonists, free radical scavengers, growth factors, gangliosides, anticonvulsants, antiinflammatory agents, and nitric oxide synthase inhibitors, and posttreatment has been effective with a few agents.
Striatal dysfunction in attention deficit and hyperkinetic disorder.
TLDR
Low striatal activity, partially reversible with methylphenidate, appears to be a cardinal feature in ADHD.
Dopaminergic Role in Stimulant-Induced Wakefulness
TLDR
D dopamine transporters play an important role in sleep regulation and are necessary for the specific wake-promoting action of amphetamines and modafinil.
A Possible Pathophysiologic Substrate of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
It is proposed that children with ADHD have dysfunction in a right-sided frontal-striatal system, which may reflect frontal lobe dysfunction due to impairment of the mesocortical dopamine system.
