    Background: Parturition has been widely described as an immunological response; however, it is unknown how this is triggered. We hypothesized that an early event in parturition is an increased responsiveness of ...

    The gestational state is a period of particular vulnerability to diseases that affect maternal and fetal health. Stress during gestation may represent a powerful influence on maternal mental health and offspring brain ...

    This study investigated how both sex and individual differences in a mental rotation test (MRT) influence performance on working memory (WM). To identify the neural substrate supporting these differences, brain electrical ...

(Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of AlbertaUniversity of LethbridgePurdue University, 2014)
    Two main models have been proposed to explain how the relative size of neural structures varies through evolution. In the mosaic evolution model, individual brain structures vary in size independently of each other, whereas ...

    Parkinson’s disease (PD) results in movement and sensory impairments that can be reduced by familiar music. At present, it is unclear whether the beneficial effects of music are limited to lessening the bradykinesia of ...
  • Holec, Victoria; Pirot, Heather L.; Euston, David R. (Frontiers Research FoundationsArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of Lethbridge, 2014)
    The rat anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) mediates effort-based decision making when the task requires the physical effort of climbing a ramp. Normal rats will readily climb a barrier leading to high reward whereas rats ...

    Antipsychotic drugs are increasingly used in children and adolescents to treat a variety of psychiatric disorders. However, little is known about the long-term effects of early life antipsychotic drug treatment. Most ...
  • Whishaw, Ian Q. (Produced at the University of Lethbridge, 1979)
    A film by Ian Q. Whishaw. Produced at the University of Lethbridge.
  • Gibb, Robbin L.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2004Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2004)
    Brain damage in the first week of life is behaviorally and anatomically devastating for a rat. I investigated the use of pre- and/or postnatal experience as interventions that might improve the outcomes in rats with ...
  • Kolb, Bryan; Gibb, Robbin L. (Frontiers MediaArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of Lethbridge, 2015)
    We review the plastic changes of the prefrontal cortex of the rat in response to a wide range of experiences including sensory and motor experience, gonadal hormones, psychoactive drugs, learning tasks, stress, social ...
  • Gibb, Robbin L.; Gonzalez, Claudia L. R.; Kolb, Bryan (Frontiers Research FoundationArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of Lethbridge, 2014)
    Birth is a particularly vulnerable time for acquiring brain injury. Unfortunately, very few treatments are available for those affected. Here we explore the effectiveness of prenatal intervention in an animal model of early ...

    Irradiated cells can signal damage and distress to both close and distant neighbors that have not been directly exposed to the radiation (naïve bystanders). While studies have shown that such bystander effects occur in the ...
  • Morris, Renee; Whishaw, Ian Q. (Frontiers MediaArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016)
    Spinal cord injury and repair is a dynamic field of research. The development of reliable animal models of traumatic spinal cord injury has been invaluable in providing a wealth of information regarding the pathological ...
  • Whishaw, Ian Q. (Produced at the University of Lethbridge, 1972)
    A film by Ian Q. Whishaw and based on research by Ian Q. Whishaw, Brian H. Bland and C. H. Vanderwolf. Photography by Landy L. Esau. Produced at the University of Lethbridge.

    Degree of lateralization for grasping predicts the maturity of the language production system in young, typically-developing children. In this report we provide compelling evidence for the relationship between right hand ...

    Damage to the hippocampus (HPC) using the excitotoxin N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) can cause retrograde amnesia for contextual fear memory. This amnesia is typically attributed to loss of cells in the HPC. However, NMDA ...

    Aldolase C, also known as Zebrin II (ZII), is a glycolytic enzyme that is expressed in cerebellar Purkinje cells of the vertebrate cerebellum. In both mammals and birds, ZII is expressed heterogeneously, such that there ...
