Cumulative behavioural toxicity was measured in groups of male and female rat pups (n=6/sex) at different stages of postnatal development. Dose-response curves (DRCs) for toxicity produced by domoic acid (DOM) were generated using animals on postnatal days (PND) 0, 5, 14, and 22, using a behavioural...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Postsynaptic density-95 inhibitors reduce ischemic brain damage without inhibiting excitatory neurotransmission, circumventing the negative consequences of glutamatergic inhibition. However, their efficacy in permanent ischemia and in providing permanent neuroprotection and n...

Osmotic minipumps are often used as an alternative to repetitive injections for prolonged drug delivery in adult rats. The appropriateness of using this technology for sustained drug delivery in newborn rats, however, has not been validated. Our objective was to determine if implantation of osmotic ...

Schizophrenia is a devastating neurological disorder that affects approximately 1% of the population and is characterized by positive, negative, and/or cognitive symptoms. Positive symptoms are associated with increased glutamate (Glu) and/or dopamine (DA) signaling in the nucleus accumbens (NAcc) w...

Deficits in attention have long been identified as a core feature in schizophrenia and related neuropsychiatric disorders. We have investigated the combined effects of neonatal treatment with domoic acid (DOM) and social isolation rearing (both putative animal models of schizophrenia) on latent inhi...

Exposing Sprague–Dawley rat pups to very low, sub-convulsant doses of domoic acid (DOM) during perinatal development has been previously shown to result in seizure-like activity in adulthood similar to partial complex epilepsy in humans, and to produce cellular and molecular changes in the dentate...

Changes in glutamatergic signalling during neonatal development are known to result in long-lasting changes in brain function. Previous work in our laboratory has shown that systemic administration of very low (subconvulsive) doses of the kainate receptor agonist, domoic acid, during the second post...
