Previous investigations have shown that the lipid composition of cerebral membranes and dopaminergic neurotransmission are changed under chronic alpha-linolenic acid diet deficiency in the rat. This study investigated whether these changes could be reversed and if the stage of brain maturation might play a role in the recovery process. The effects of reversion on the fatty acid (FA) composition and dopaminergic neurotransmission were studied in brain regions known to be affected by such… CONTINUE READING
