Gene context of Neurochemistry

  • These results suggest that overexpression of a mutated PS1 gene induces a subtle alteration in object memory without affecting cholinergic neurochemistry [34].
  • The resemblance of this phenotype with the anorexia (anx/anx) mouse mutation prompted us to investigate the hypothalamic neurochemistry of Contactin knock-out (KO) mice [35].
  • Neurochemistry within ventrolateral medulla and cardiovascular effects during static exercise following eNOS antagonism [36].
  • These findings implicate 5-HT neurochemistry as potentially important therapeutic targets for treating human hyperactivity and possibly childhood ADHD [37].
  • In the present study, we investigated the effects of the astrocyte-directed inactivation of Cx43 on mouse behaviour and brain neurochemistry [38].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Neurochemistry

  • The combination of raphe stimulation with microdialysis may be a useful way to study the in vivo neurochemistry of DRN/MRN 5-HT pathways [39].
  • Animal models indicate that nicotine elicits changes in neural cell replication and differentiation, leading to deficits in synaptic neurochemistry and behavioral performance, many of which first emerge at adolescence [40].
  • To determine the neurochemistry of the projection, the distributions of GABA and glutamate immunoreactivity in anterogradely labelled boutons in the entopenducular nucleus were studied by postembedding immunocytochemistry [41].
  • Chronic variable stress and partial 5-HT denervation by parachloroamphetamine treatment in the rat: effects on behavior and monoamine neurochemistry [42].
  • Assessments of glucose metabolism and other, specific aspects of neurochemistry in AD will provide direct measures of therapeutic drug actions and may permit distinction of symptomatic versus disease-modifying therapies as they are developed and introduced in clinical trials [43].
