- Mechanisms of ethanol-induced degeneration in the developing, mature, and aging cerebellumPia Jaatinen
Medical School and Tampere University Hospital, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland
Cerebellum 7:332-47. 2008..These special instances will be discussed along with the general mechanisms of ethanol-induced cerebellar degeneration...
- Interaction of aging and intermittent ethanol exposure on brain cytochrome c oxidase activity levelsPia Jaatinen
University of Tampere, Medical School, FIN 33014 University of Tampere, Finland
Alcohol 29:91-100. 2003..Defective energy metabolism due to decreased CO activity levels might compromise neuronal energy stores and thereby contribute to ethanol-induced brain dysfunction and irreversible CNS degeneration...
- Intermittent ethanol exposure increases the number of cerebellar microgliaJarno Riikonen
Tampere School of Public Health, FIN 33014 University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland
Alcohol Alcohol 37:421-6. 2002..The number of cerebellar microglia after 5(1)/2 months of continuous or intermittent ethanol exposure was studied using the optical dissector method...
- Lifelong ethanol consumption and brain regional GABAA receptor subunit mRNA expression in alcohol-preferring ratsMaija Sarviharju
Department of Mental Health and Alcohol Research, National Public Health Institute, Helsinki, Finland
Alcohol 40:159-66. 2006..The results suggest that prolonged ethanol consumption leading to blood concentrations of about 10 mM may downregulate the mRNA expression of selected GABAA receptor subunits and that aging might have partly similar effects...
