Abstract

Early life vitamin D plays a prominent role in neurodevelopment and subsequent brain function, including schizophrenic-like outcomes and increasing evidence for an association with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Here, we investigate how early life vitamin D deficiency during rat pregnancy and...

Abstract

The majority of laboratory animals is a prey in the nature, therefore they can be used in the fields of many psychological research, such as modelling different human anxiety syndromes. Previously the rat used to be the primary model, but parallel to the development of molecular biology, sensitive...

Abstract

Prolonged consumption of ketogenic diets (KD) has reported neuroprotective benefits. Several studies suggest KD interventions could be useful in the management of neurological and developmental disorders. Alterations in the Engrailed (En) genes, specifically Engrailed 2 (En2), have...

Abstract

The biological actions of growth hormone (GH) are pleiotropic, including growth promotion, energy mobilization, gonadal development, appetite, and social behavior. The regulatory network for GH is complex and includes many central and peripheral endocrine factors as well as that from the...

AbstractFull Text

Early social isolation can have profound consequences on different social behaviours due to alterations in brain structures or gene expressions, but its influence on social recognition or vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OXT) expression has not been thoroughly investigated in mice. We examined...

Abstract

Stress in the form of intermittent maternal deprivation and social isolation during early postnatal life in rats and monkeys produces persistent changes in physiology and behaviour. In farm animals physiological consequences of disrupting mother-infant interactions with respect to health and animal ...

Abstract

Previously, our laboratory has shown that androgen receptors in the medial preoptic area (MPOA) and ventromedial nucleus (VMN) are necessary for copulation in male rats. The present study examined whether these receptors are required for other sociosexual behaviors. In Experiment 1, different...

Abstract

The zebra fish has been a preferred subject of genetic analysis. It produces a large number of offspring that can be kept in small aquaria, it can be easily mutagenized using chemical mutagens (e.g., ethyl nitrosourea [ENU]), and high-resolution genetic maps exist that aid identification of novel...
