Anticonvulsant activity of melatonin, but not melatonin receptor agonists Neu-P11 and Neu-P67, in mice

Behavioural Brain Research

Paula MosińskaPiotr Wlaź

Abstract

The anticonvulsant activity of melatonin (MLT) have been tested in several in vivo models and against different convulsive stimuli. Although MLT exerts high affinity towards melatonin receptors (MTs), the potential usefulness in the treatment of epilepsy is limited mainly due to its sho...read more

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) affects brain areas beyond the temporal lobes due to connections of the hippocampi and other temporal lobe structures. Discover the latest research on TLE here.

Amygdala and Midbrain Dopamine

The midbrain dopamine system is widely studied for its involvement in emotional and motivational behavior. Some of these neurons receive information from the amygdala and project throughout the cortex. When the circuit and transmission of dopamine is disrupted symptoms may present. Here is the latest research on the amygdala and midbrain dopamine.

Tay-Sachs Disease

Tay Sachs disease is a neurodegenerative disorder due to β-hexosaminidase A deficiency caused by mutations in the HEXA gene. Discover the latest research on Tay-Sachs disease here.

NMDA Receptor Signaling

The NDMA receptor is an ionotropic receptor that is activated when glutamate or glycine binds to it, initiating several downstream signaling cascades. NDMA receptor signaling is thought to be implicated in different pathologies, including depression. Here is the latest research on NDMA receptor signaling.

Vision Neuroscience

Visual Neuroscience describes the visual system of the human body and the brain's visual cortex. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to vision neuroscience.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by unprovoked and recurrent seizures. Discover the latest research on factors and mechanisms that underlie epilepsy here.

Neural Control of Overconsumption

Overconsumption is associated with activity of a complex network of neuroregulators affecting areas such as drug addiction and binge eating. Discover the latest research on neural control of overconsumption here.

Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy

Progressive myoclonic epilepsy (PME) is a heterogeneous group of epilepsies characterized by myoclonus seizures and progressive neurological symptoms. Discover the latest research on PME here.

Lymphopenia

Lymphopenia has been associated with autoimmune pathology and it has been suggested that lymphopenia-induced proliferation of naive T cells may be responsible for the development of immune pathology. Here is the latest research.


Electroconvulsive Therapy

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is a well-established effective treatment strategy in treatment-refractory depression. Discover the latest research on ECT here.

Amygdala: Sensory Processes

Amygdalae, nuclei clusters located in the temporal lobe of the brain, play a role in memory, emotional responses, and decision-making. Here is the latest research on sensory processes in the amygdala.

Angelman Syndrome

Angelman syndrome is a neurogenetic imprinting disorder caused by loss of the maternally inherited UBE3A gene and is characterized by generalized epilepsy, limited expressive speech, sleep dysfunction, and movement disorders. Here is the latest research.
