Perinatal Asphyxia Reduces Dentate Granule Cells and Exacerbates Methamphetamine-Induced Hyperlocomotion in Adulthood

Abstract

BACKGROUND Obstetric complications have been regarded as a risk factor for schizophrenia later in life. One of the mechanisms underlying the association is postulated to be a hypoxic process in the brain in the offspring around the time of birth.
