Study of mental processes and behavior of schizophrenics.
Drugs that bind to and activate nicotinic cholinergic receptors (RECEPTORS, NICOTINIC). Nicotinic agonists act at postganglionic nicotinic receptors, at neuroeffector junctions in the peripheral nervous system, and at nicotinic receptors in the central nervous system. Agents that function as neuromuscular depolarizing blocking agents are included here because they activate nicotinic receptors, although they are used clinically to block nicotinic transmission.
Drugs that bind to nicotinic cholinergic receptors (RECEPTORS, NICOTINIC) and block the actions of acetylcholine or cholinergic agonists. Nicotinic antagonists block synaptic transmission at autonomic ganglia, the skeletal neuromuscular junction, and at central nervous system nicotinic synapses.
Nicotine is highly toxic alkaloid. It is the prototypical agonist at nicotinic cholinergic receptors where it dramatically stimulates neurons and ultimately blocks synaptic transmission. Nicotine is also important medically because of its presence in tobacco smoke.

an Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) mechanism for connectivity check and connection verification. This is achieved by providing a simplified mechanism with large portions of negotiation aspects eliminated, resulting in a faster and simpler provisioning. Because of this simplified mechanism, due to a misconfiguration, an SBFDInitiator could send S-BFD control packets to a target that does not exist or that is outside the S-BFD administrative domain. As explained in Section 7.3.1, an SBFDInitiator can be a persistent initiator or a when needed one. When an S-BFD persistent SBFDInitiator is used, it SHOULD be controlled that S-BFD control packet do not propagate for an extended period of time outside of the administrative domain that uses it. Further, operational measures SHOULD be taken to identify if S-BFD packets are not responded to for an extended period of time, and remediate the situation. These potential concerns are largely mitigated by dynamic advertisement ...
Numerous studies have evaluated the association between Ser311Cys (rs1801028, C|G) polymorphism of the dopamine D2 receptor (DRD2) gene and schizophrenia risk. However, the specific association is still controversial. We examined whether DRD2 Ser311Cys polymorphism confers schizophrenia risk in Asian populations. Sixteen studies were retrieved reporting on a total of 2268 schizophrenia patients and 2423 healthy controls. Meta-analysis of the results showed significant associations between Ser311Cys polymorphism and schizophrenia risk in the comparisons of G versus C (odds ratio (OR) = 1.47, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.18-1.83, P = 0.0006) and CG+GG versus CC (OR = 1.45, 95%CI = 1.16- 1.82, P = 0.001). In a subgroup analysis by nationality, we found a significant association between Ser311Cys polymorphism and schizophrenia risk in the comparisons of G versus C and CG+GG versus CC genotype in the Japanese population (OR = 1.75, 95%CI = 1.30-2.35, P = 0.0002; OR = 1.72, 95%CI = 1.27-2.33, P = 0.0004;

Rationale: Aspects of schizophrenia, including deficits in sensorimotor gating, have been linked to glutamate dysfunction and/or oxidative stress in the prefrontal cortex. System xc −, a cystine-glutamate antiporter, is a poorly understood mechanism that contributes to both cellular antioxidant capacity and glutamate homeostasis. Objectives: Our goal was to determine whether increased system xc − activity within the prefrontal cortex would normalize a rodent measure of sensorimotor gating. Methods: In situ hybridization was used to map messenger RNA (mRNA) expression of xCT, the active subunit of system xc −, in the prefrontal cortex. Prepulse inhibition was used to measure sensorimotor gating; deficits in prepulse inhibition were produced using phencyclidine (0.3-3 mg/kg, sc). N-Acetylcysteine (10-100 μM) and the system xc − inhibitor (S)-4-carboxyphenylglycine (CPG, 0.5 μM) were used to increase and decrease system xc − activity, respectively. The uptake of 14C-cystine into tissue punches

The ability to improve prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the acoustic startle response may predict the efficacy of compounds as cognitive ...
Several studies have suggested a role of BDNF in the development of schizophrenia. For example, post-mortem studies have shown significantly reduced levels of BDNF protein expression in the brain of schizophrenia patients. We investigated the relationship between reduced levels of BDNF in the brain and the regulation of prepulse inhibition (PPI), a behavioral endophenotype of schizophrenia. We used BDNF heterozygous mutant rats which display a 50% decrease of mature BDNF protein levels. Previously, we observed normal baseline PPI and responses to the dopamine D1/D2 receptor agonist, apomorphine, in these rats. Here, we focused on the effects of the NMDA receptor antagonist, MK-801, its interaction with mGluR2/3 and mGluR5 receptors, and the PPI response to serotonergic drugs. MK-801 administration caused a dose-dependent reduction of PPI and increase of startle amplitudes. Baseline PPI and the effect of 0.02-0.1mg/kg of MK-801 were not significantly altered in male or female BDNF heterozygous rats,
Genetic variations that increase schizophrenia risk are rare, making it difficult to study their role. To overcome this, the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium, an international team led by Jonathan Sebat, PhD, at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, analyzed the genomes of more than 41,000 people in the largest study of its kind to date. Their study, published November 21 in Nature Genetics, reveals regions of the genome where mutations increase schizophrenia risk.

Gap detection or gap pre-pulse inhibition of the acoustic startle (GPIAS) has been successfully used in rat and guinea pig models of tinnitus, yet this system has proven to have low efficacy in CBA mice, with low basal GPIAS and subtle tinnitus like effects. Here, we tested five mouse strains (CBA, BalbC, CD-1, C57BL/6 and sv129) for pre-pulse inhibition and gap detection with varying interstimulus intervals (ISI) and found the that mice from a CBA genetic background had the poorest capacities of suppressing the startle response in presence of a pre-pulse or a gap. CD-1 mice displayed variable responses throughout all ISI. Interestingly, C57BL/6, sv129 and BalbC showed efficient suppression with either pre-pulses or gaps with shorter ISI. The glutamate aspartate transporter (GLAST) is expressed in support cells from the cochlea and buffers the excess of glutamate. We hypothesized that loss of GLAST function could sensitize the ear to tinnitus-inducing agents, such as salicylate. Using shorter ISI to
Long-term neurological complications, termed sequelae, can result from viral encephalitis, which are not well understood. In human survivors, alphavirus encephalitis can cause severe neurobehavioral changes, in the most extreme cases, a schizophrenic-like syndrome. In the present study, we aimed to adapt an animal model of alphavirus infection survival to study the development of these long-term neurological complications. Upon low-dose infection of wild-type C57B/6 mice, asymptomatic and symptomatic groups were established and compared to mock-infected mice to measure general health and baseline neurological function, including the acoustic startle response and prepulse inhibition paradigm. Prepulse inhibition is a robust operational measure of sensorimotor gating, a fundamental form of information processing. Deficits in prepulse inhibition manifest as the inability to filter out extraneous sensory stimuli. Sensory gating is disrupted in schizophrenia and other mental disorders, as well as
Background: Reduced prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the auditory startle reflex is a hallmark feature of attention-processing deficits in patients with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. Recent evidence suggests that these deficits may also be present before the onset of psychosis in individuals at ultra-high risk (UHR) and become progressively worse as psychosis develops. We conducted a longitudinal follow-up study to observe the development of PPI over time in UHR adolescents and healthy controls. Methods: Two-year follow-up data of PPI measures were compared between UHR adolescents and a matched control group of typically developing individuals. Results: We included 42 UHR adolescents and 32 matched controls in our study. Compared with controls, UHR individuals showed reduced PPI at both assessments. Clinical improvement in UHR individuals was associated with an increase in PPI parameters. Limitations: A developmental increase in startle magnitude partially confined the interpretation ...

System xc− represents an intriguing target in attempts to understand the pathological states of the central nervous system. Also called a cystine-glutamate antiporter, system xc− typically functions by exchanging one molecule of extracellular cystine for one molecule of intracellular glutamate. Nonvesicular glutamate released during cystine-glutamate exchange activates extrasynaptic glutamate receptors in a manner that shapes synaptic activity and plasticity. These findings contribute to the intriguing possibility that extracellular glutamate is regulated by a complex network of release and reuptake mechanisms, many of which are unique to glutamate and rarely depicted in models of excitatory signaling. Because system xc− is often expressed on non-neuronal cells, the study of cystine-glutamate exchange may advance the emerging viewpoint that glia are active contributors to information processing in the brain. It is noteworthy that system xc− is at the interface between excitatory signaling and

A landmark study, based on genetic analysis of nearly 65,000 people, has revealed that a persons risk of schizophrenia is increased if they inherit specific variants in a gene related to synaptic pruning - the elimination of connections between neurons. The findings represent the first time that the origin of this devastating psychiatric disease has been causally linked to specific gene variants and a biological process. They also help explain decades-old observations: synaptic pruning is particularly active during adolescence, which is the typical period of onset for schizophrenia symptoms, and brains of schizophrenic patients tend to show fewer connections between neurons. The gene, called complement component 4 (C4), plays a well-known role in the immune system but has now been shown to also play a key role in brain development and schizophrenia risk. The insight may allow future therapeutic strategies to be directed at the disorders roots, rather than just its symptoms.. The study, which ...

It has been suggested that system xc− may be a promising cancer target, as it may sensitize tumors to conventional chemo/radiation-based therapies by lowering glutathione levels (25). One of the causes of postoperative radiation and chemotherapy treatment failure in patients with glioblastoma multiforme is an increase in glutathione levels that may decrease chemotherapy-associated oxidative stress and play a role in glutathione-mediated cellular detoxification pathways. In this work, we have expanded on the role system xc− plays in temozolomide resistance in human glioma and have identified a novel mechanism that may contribute to glioma progression, via metabolic alteration. Inhibitors of system xc−, such as sulfasalazine, have been put forward as possible effective therapeutic options. Sulfasalazine has been shown to deplete glutathione levels by inhibiting the uptake of cystine, which lowers levels of intracellular cysteine, the rate-limiting precursor for glutathione synthesis ...
Background: Pre-pulse inhibition (PPI) is a process in which the motor response to a startling stimulus is inhibited by a less intense stimulus immediately preceding it. Diminished PPI represents one of the many sensory integration impairments observed in patients with schizophrenia and autism. Objectives: The objective of our project is to explore potential neuropharmacological mechanisms of clozapine-mediated PPI improvement. Methods: In the current study 36 female Sprague-Dawley rats were used to study mixed-modal PPI with an acoustic prepulse and a tactile (air-puff) startling stimulus. Animals were chronically administered via osmotic minipump the NMDA glutamate receptor antagonist, dizocilpine (0.15 mg/kg/day), the H1 histamine receptor antagonist, pyrilamine (50 mg/kg/day), the combination of the two drugs or the saline vehicle (N=9/group). Following the completion of these psychopharmacological studies, we performed postmortem radioligand assays on histological sections to determine ...
ABSTRACT BLAST-INDUCED TINNITUS: A COMBINED BEHAVIORAL, MEMRE, AND ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY STUDY by JESSICA OUYANG May 2014 Advisor: Drs. Steve Cala & Jinsheng Zhang Major: Physiology Degree: Doctor of Philosophy Tinnitus and hearing loss are the frequent auditory-related co-morbidities of blast trauma. The etiology of blast-induced tinnitus is also muddled by brain mechanisms associated with emotional and cognitive problems such as anxiety, memory loss, and depression. We set out to develop a realistic and ecologically valid model to address changes of cognitive status and psychological state that are associated with blast- induced tinnitus. In this study, 19 adult rats were randomly divided into the sham group (n=6) and the blast group (n=13). Blast exposure (14 psi) was conducted via a shock wave tube to expose the left ears of the rats in the blast group, and a sham exposure was conducted to the rats in the sham group. Blast-induced tinnitus was evaluated with gap detection and pre-pulse inhibition (PPI)
Tsuang pointed out that several hallucinogenic drugs, such as ketamine and phencyclidine (PCP, or angel dust), block N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors and can produce symptoms similar to schizophrenia. These are the strongest evidence implicating these receptors in schizophrenia. The drugs sometimes induce psychosis and terrifying sensory detachment. Reports of such effects in recreational drug users fingered faulty NMDA receptor networks as suspects in schizophrenia.. In all five of their study families, Tsuangs team detected rare protein-altering variants in one of three genes involved with the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor network. One of the genes, GRM5, is directly linked with glutamate signaling. In the other two genes, the links are indirect and connected through other proteins synthesized in brain cells. One of these proteins, PPEF2, appears to affect the levels of certain brain nerve-cell signaling mediators, and the other altered protein, LRP1B, may compete with a normal protein for a ...
Wim Veling, M.D., Ezra Susser, M.D., Dr.Ph., Jim van Os, M.D., Ph.D., Johan P. Mackenbach, M.D., Ph.D., Jean-Paul Selten, M.D., Ph.D., and Hans W. Hoek, M.D., Ph.D.. Objective: A high incidence of psychotic disorders has been reported in immigrant ethnic groups in Western Europe. Some studies suggest that ethnic density may influence the incidence of schizophrenia. The authors investigated whether this increased incidence among immigrants depends on the ethnic density of the neighborhoods in which they live. Method: This was a prospective first-contact incidence study of psychotic disorders in The Hague, by ethnicity and neighborhood of residence. Over a 7-year period, individuals who made contact with a physician for a suspected psychotic disorder underwent diagnostic interviews and received DSM-IV diagnoses. A comprehensive municipal registration system provided the denominator for incidence rates. Data were sufficient to examine incidence rates in native Dutch and in first- and ...
Several important results were obtained from the present studies. First, in accordance with many previous reports, PCP was found repeatedly to disrupt PPI (Bakshi and Geyer, 1995; Bakshi et al., 1994; Mansbach and Geyer, 1989; Swerdlow et al., 1996; Wiley, 1994; Varty and Higgins, 1994; Johansson et al., 1994b). Second, the selective alpha-1 noradrenergic antagonist prazosin prevented the PCP-induced deficit in PPI. This effect was produced by multiple prazosin doses, was observed over multiple prepulse intensities and was replicated in a second separate experiment. Finally, selective antagonists for eitheralpha-2 (RX821002), muscarinic M1 (pirenzepine) or GABA-A (pitrazepin) receptors had no effect on the disruption of PPI produced by PCP. Taken together, these results indicate strongly that the impairment of sensorimotor gating induced by PCP involves the presumably indirect activation of alpha-1 adrenergic receptors, but probably not alpha-2, M1 or GABA-A receptors.. To the best of our ...

PY - 2008/11/1. Y1 - 2008/11/1. N2 - A parametric study is reported where a femtosecond prepulse is used to change the target properties before the interaction with a multi-terawatt laser pulse which accelerates protons from a foil target. The proton spectrum as function of the prepulse delay and intensity, up to 1.5 ns and up to 3×1016 W/cm2, respectively, shows a global decrease of the maximum proton energy with delay and intensity. However, under appropriate conditions, it is found that the maximum proton energy increases by more than 10% and that the spectral shape changes..

Some of the symptoms of schizophrenia such as hallucinations and delusions cannot be assessed easily in animals. For other abnormalities such as cognitive dysfunction and affective symptoms, some proxy measures have been developed to test animals. For example, prepulse inhibition and latent inhibition are commonly used to detect attention-related deficits, whereas PST and TST can indicate a depression-related phenotype. Recently reported DISC1 transgenics or mutants exhibit some abnormalities consistent with a schizophrenia phenotype (Table 1). For example, strain 31L has a predominant mood disorder-like phenotype with reduced Pde4b activity, whereas the 100P strain shows profound deficits in prepulse inhibition and latent inhibition (Clapcote et al., 2007). However, neither 129 mice with spontaneous Disc1 truncation (Koike et al., 2006, Ishizuka et al., 2007) nor DN-DISC1 mice using an ectopic (Hikida et al., 2007) or inducible promoter (Pletnikov et al., 2008) display significant changes in ...

Why does this system misfire only about 1% of the time? One possible answer is that the C4 activity prunes synapse connections away normally in a random kind of way, but occasionally, by chance, prunes too much, leading to schizophrenia. The disease would in that sense be purely due to random bad luck, rather than interacting with other mechanisms or factors. The higher the copy number the more likely the bad luck but too weakly for selection to care. However, that reason for the disease seems unlikely, for several reasons. First, mapping has identified about 100 or so genome regions statistically associate with schizophrenia risk, suggesting that the disease is not just bad luck. Secondly, schizophrenia is familial: close relatives seem to be at elevated risk, 10-fold in very close relatives and almost 50-fold in identical twins. This should not happen if the pathogenetic process is purely random, even though since haplotypes are inherited in close family members there could be a slight ...
0090] Although a case where each of the pre-pulse laser beam P and the main pulse laser beam M has a circular cross-section and each of the droplet DL and the diffused target has a circular cross-section has been described so far, this disclosure is not limited thereto. When the cross-section is not circular, the relationship between the spot size of a given laser beam and the size of a droplet may be defined two-dimensionally in terms of the area. For example, an area (mathematical) of a region (two-dimensional plane) where the beam intensity distribution along the cross-section of the pre-pulse laser beam P has substantial uniformity may exceed the area (mathematical) of the maximum cross-section of the droplet DL. Further, the minimum area of the region where the beam intensity distribution along the cross-section of the pre-pulse laser beam P has substantial uniformity may be equal to or larger than the sum of the area of the maximum cross-section of the droplet DL and the variation in the ...
A study presented at ASHG Tuesday showed that newly identified schizophrenia risk genes appear to have some overlap with genes involved in autism spectrum disorder.
