      Carvalho, R. D.; Arida, Ricardo Mario [UNIFESP]; Cavalheiro, Esper Abrão [UNIFESP] (Wiley-Blackwell, 2003-02-01)
      Purpose: This study examined the effect of amygdala kindling development in Proechimys guayannensis rat, a common rodent of the Amazon basin.Methods: Adult male P. guayannensis animals (n = 43) and adult male Wistar rats ...

    • Increased sensitivity to seizures in mice lacking cellular prion protein 

      Walz, Roger; Amaral, Olavo B.; Rockenbach, Isabel C.; Roesler, Rafael; Izquierdo, Ivan; Cavalheiro, Esper Abrão [UNIFESP]; Martins, Vilma R.; Brentani, Ricardo R. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1999-12-01)
      Purpose: the physiologic role of the cellular prion protein (PrPc) is unknown. Mice devoid of PrPc develop normally and show only minor deficits. However, electrophysiologic and histologic alterations found in these mice ...

    • Influence of pinealectomy on the amygdala kindling development in rats 

      Janjoppi, L.; Lacerda, AFS de; Scorza, F. A.; Amado, D.; Cavalheiro, E. A.; Arida, R. M. (Elsevier B.V., 2006-01-09)
      A considerable number of studies have demonstrated the anticonvulsant effect of melatonin. the present study examines the influence of pinealectomy on the amygdala kindling development in rats. Animals were divided into ...

    • Physical exercise program reverts the effects of pinealectomy on the amygdala kindling development 

      Silva de Lacerda, Aline Fabiana; Janjoppi, Luciana; Scorza, Fulvio Alexandre; Lima, Eliangela; Amado, Debora; Cavalheiro, Esper Abrao; Arida, Ricardo Mario (Elsevier B.V., 2007-09-28)
      Several studies have demonstrated the anticonvulsant effect of melatonin. in view of the positive effects of physical exercise in epilepsy, this study analyzed the influence of physical exercise program on the amygdala ...

    • Physical training in developing rats does not influence the kindling development in the adult life 

      Arida, Ricardo Mario; Scorza, Fulvio Alexandre; Silva de Lacerda, Aline Fabiana; Silva, Sergio Gomes da; Cavalheiro, Esper Abrao (Elsevier B.V., 2007-03-16)
      The positive effect of physical exercise programs on seizure frequency and severity has been demonstrated both in adult human and animals. However, this investigation during animal brain development has not been examined. ...

    • Proechimys guyannensis: An animal model of resistance to epilepsy 

      Arida, Ricardo Mario [UNIFESP]; Scorza, Fulvio Alexandre [UNIFESP]; Carvalho, Reinaldo de Amorim; Cavalheiro, Esper Abrão [UNIFESP] (Wiley-Blackwell, 2005-01-01)
      Purpose: the potential interest of Proechimys guyannensis (PG), a spiny rat species living in the Amazonian region, as an animal model of anticonvulsant mechanisms, prompted the investigation of the susceptibility of this ...
