Stress early in life puts the individual at a greater risk for developing mental disorders in adulthood. The animal model of maternal separation involves daily removal of pups from their mother over the early postnatal period and leads to several behavioral deficits in adults. Since this period corresponds to a time of extensive developmental changes in the glutamatergic system, glutamate receptor mRNA expression was studied in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. Male Wistar rats were either… CONTINUE READING
