  • Spanswick, Simon; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, 2010Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2010)
    Long-term adrenalectomy (ADX) results in a specific loss of dentate gyrus granule cells in the hippocampus of adult rats, occurring over a period of weeks to months. This loss of granule cells results in cognitive deficits ...
  • Comeau, Wendy L.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science. (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2007)
    The effects of experience on developing and mature prefrontal brain circuitry and behaviour were investigated in rats using Ritalin, complex housing, and learning as tools. The results showed that Ritalin altered prefrontal ...
  • Himmler, Brett T.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, 2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2011)
    The influence of play behavior on the brain was investigated through plasticity and metaplasticity methodology. Regions in both cortical and sub-cortical areas were investigated. Animals in both studies either experienced ...
  • Lowings, Michael D.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2010Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2010)
    Stroke is one of the most common, and damaging, neurological afflictions. Stroke causes widespread and variable chronic effects, due to the limited regenerative ability of the adult brain. Altered gene expression ...
  • Rakai, Brooke D.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, c2008Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2008)
    Stroke outcome is highly variable. Experiments in this thesis test the hypothesis that experience prior to a stroke is an important variable in the manifestation of stroke. Optokinetic tracking was used to evaluate the ...
  • Cardiff, James W (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2012)
    Adrenalectomy (ADX) has been shown to cause selective degeneration of granule cells in the dentate gyrus (DG). This occurs due to the reduction of corticosterone (CORT) and behavioural deficit ...
  • Gidyk, Darryl C (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2011)
    The present thesis examines the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation and forelimb rehabilitation on motor recovery after stroke in rats. Post-stroke motor outcomes were quantified using an innovative battery ...
