Extrinsic Inhibition of the Inferior Colliculus during Audiogenic Seizures: Effects of Unilateral Dorsal Nucleus of the Lateral Lemniscus Lesions in Young Rats 2010 1225 In this study, a model of generalized epilepsy was used to investigate the role of extrinsic inhibition of the inferior colliculus (IC) during audiogenic seizures (AGS). There is evidence to suggest that a deficiency of inhibition within the IC plays...
The Impact of Prior Experience With Cross-Modal Stimulation on Activation of Bipolar and Multipolar Neurons in the Intermediate Layer of Rat Superior Colliculus 2013 499 Multisensory integration (MI) is the process in which information from multiple sensory modalities converges on single neurons. When a rat orients toward a cross-modal, light and sound, stimulus, neurons in the superior colliculus (SC) integrate the ...
Effects of Periodic and/or a Single Exposure to an Enriched Environment on Neural C-fos Expression in Adolescent Rats 2013 596 Environmental enrichment of laboratory animals consists of cognitive, social and physical enhancement of the subjects’ life experiences. Enrichment produces improved performance on memory tasks. In the present study, 16 Long-Evans rats (8 male and 8 ...
Environmental Enrichment Promotes Adaptation to Environment Rearrangement in Younger but not Older Adolescent Rats 2015 219 Experiences, such as environmental enrichment (EE), that allow for exploration often lead to brain changes and alter novelty-seeking behaviors, and adolescence is a developmental period in which these behaviors increase. In this study, the effects of...
Enviornmental Enrichment Affects the Behavior of Adolescent Rats in a Social Preference Task 2015 379 While the behavioral development of male and female rats differs, adolescents of both sexes have an interest in novelty. Environmental enrichment (EE) can add to that interest by providing opportunity for interaction with objects and other rats, and ...
Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the Legal Diganosis of Antisocial Personality Disorder 2015 459 Antisocial Personality Disorder, APD, is characterized by manipulation and disregard for the emotions of others, and individuals suffering from this disorder often display behaviors that cause them to end up in the criminal justice system. The disor...
Reform Is Necessary: An Analysis of the United States Healthcare System after the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act with Comparison to South Africa’s Pluralistic Healthcare System 2015 500 The structural and functional complexity of the United States healthcare system affects its citizens. As such, the healthcare system has caused both economic and social issues to arise,which have demanded the need for healthcare reform. The two major...
Environmental Enrichment's Effects On Exploration And Response to Novelty in Adolescent Rats 2016 119 Adolescence is a critical period in development for both neural and behavioral change that is characterized by risk-taking, exploration, and novelty-seeking. However, these behavioral and neural changes may be influenced by experiences such as enviro...
Neural Activity In The Amygdala Of Young Rats Evoked By One Or More Seizures 2016 278 Generalized seizures involving clonic convulsions of the entire body are often a feature of epilepsy and result from abnormal neural firing spreading throughout the forebrain. The amygdala is often required to relay abnormal neuronal excitatory activ...
Enrichment Effects On Object-In-Place Task Performance In The Adolescent Rat Are Due To Task Novelty And Subject Age 2017 77 Adolescence is a period of rapid physical growth, correlated with increased exploration and novelty-seeking behaviors that can be potentially risky. These behaviors can be mediated by processes such as environmental enrichment (EE), which consists of...
Enrichment Influences Social Preference Behavior In Older Female And Male Adolescent Rats 2017 142 Rats engage in novelty-seeking behaviors in adolescence. Environmental enrichment (EE) allows rats to experience novelty through physical environments and interaction with conspecifics. The effects of EE on adolescent rats’ behavior during a social p...
