This work assesses the possible changes in gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) and taurine content in the hypothalamus, the median eminence and striatum after the exposure to various doses of cadmium. Cadmium chloride (CdCl2) was administered in the drinking water at the doses of 5, 10, 25, 50 or 100 ppm to adult male rats for 1 month. In the anterior hypothalamus, taurine and GABA content decreased with the dose of 10 ppm of CdCl2 only. Cadmium exposure decreased both GABA and taurine content in… CONTINUE READING
