      Thyroidectomy is a surgical procedure indicated in cases of several maligned or benign thyroid diseases, thus, the aim of our study was to verify how the hypothyroidism induced by thyroidectomy influences behavioral ...

    • Astaxanthin limits fish oil-related oxidative insult in the anterior forebrain of Wistar rats: Putative anxiolytic effects? 

      Mattei, Rita [UNIFESP]; Polotow, Tatiana Geraldo; Vardaris, Cristina Vasconcellos; Guerra, Beatriz Alves; Leite, Jose Roberto [UNIFESP]; Otton, Rosemari; Barros, Marcelo Paes de (Elsevier B.V., 2011-09-01)
      The habitual consumption of marine fish is largely associated to human mental health. Fish oil is particularly rich in n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids that are known to play a role. in several neuronal and cognitive ...

    • Chronic unpredictable stress exacerbates lipopolysaccharide-induced activation of nuclear factor-kappa B in the frontal cortex and hippocampus via glucocorticoid secretion 

      Munhoz, Carolina Demarchi; Lepsch, Lucilia Brochado; Kawamoto, Elisa Mitiko; Malta, Marília Brinati; Lima, Larissa de Sá; Avellar, Maria Christina Werneck [UNIFESP]; Sapolsky, Robert M.; Scavone, Cristoforo (Soc Neuroscience, 2006-04-05)
      Although the anti-inflammatory actions of glucocorticoids (GCs) are well established in the periphery, these stress hormones can increase inflammation under some circumstances in the brain. the transcription factor nuclear ...
