An abundance of seafood consumption studies presents new opportunities to evaluate effects on neurocognitive development.

Prostaglandins Leukot Essent Fatty Acids 2019 12 11;151:8-13. Epub 2019 Oct 11.

University Distinguished Professor, Department of Dietetics and Nutrition, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, KS, USA.

The relationship between seafood eaten during pregnancy and neurocognition in offspring has been the subject of considerable scientific study for over 25 years. Evaluation of this question led two scientific advisory committees to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAC), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations with the World Health Organization (FAO/WHO), Health Canada, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), and the U.S. Read More

Acute Statin Treatment Improves Recovery after Experimental Intracerebral Hemorrhage.

World J Neurosci 2013 May;3(2):69-75

Department of Neurosurgery, Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, MI.

Background And Purpose: We have previously demonstrated that 2-week treatment of experimental intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) with a daily dose of 2 mg/kg statin starting 24 hours post-injury exerts a neuroprotective effect. The present study extends our previous investigation and tests the effect of acute high-dose (within 24 hours) statin therapy on experimental ICH.

Material And Methods: Fifty-six male Wistar rats were subjected to ICH by stereotactic injection of 100 μl of autologous blood into the striatum. Read More

Statins Enhance Expression of Growth Factors and Activate the PI3K/Akt-mediated Signaling Pathway after Experimental Intracerebral Hemorrhage.

World J Neurosci 2012 May;2(2):74-80

Department of Neurosurgery, Henry Ford Health System, Detroit MI.

Previous studies have demonstrates that statins improve neurological outcome and promote neurovascular recovery after ICH. This study is designed to examine whether simvastatin and atorvastatin affect levels of growth factors and activate the Akt signaling pathway during the recovery phase after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in rats. Sixty (60) male Wistar rats were subjected to ICH by stereotactic injection of 100 μL of autologous blood into the striatum and were treated with or without simvastatin or atorvastatin. Read More

Effect of emotional valence on episodic memory stages as indexed by event-related potentials.

World J Neurosci 2013;2013(3):250-262

Centre de Recherche, Institut Universitaire en Santé Mentale de Montréal, Montréal, Canada ; Département de Psychiatrie, Université de Montréal, Montréal, Canada.

Several investigations have shown that emotional events show superior recall than non-emotional ones. However, the cortical mechanisms underlying the episodic recall of emotional scenes are still poorly understood. Our main aim was to compare the magnitude of the Event-Related brain Potentials (ERP) old-new effect related to emotionally unpleasant, pleasant and neutral photographic images. Read More
