Delayed-matching-to-place Task in a Dry Maze to Measure Spatial Working Memory in Mice
Authors:  Xi Feng, Karen Krukowski, Timothy Jopson and Susanna Rosi, date: 07/05/2017, view: 2514, Q&A: 0
The delayed-matching-to-place (DMP) dry maze test is a variant of DMP water maze (Steele and Morris, 1999; Faizi et al., 2012) which measures spatial working/episodic-like learning and memory that depends on both hippocampal and cortical ...

Intracellular and Mitochondrial Reactive Oxygen Species Measurement in Primary Cultured Neurons
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are chemically reactive oxygen containing molecules. ROS consist of radical oxygen species including superoxide anion (O2•−) and hydroxyl radical (•OH) and non-radical oxygen species such as ...
