- Hippocampal modulation of sensorimotor processesTobias Bast
Behavioral Neurobiology Laboratory, The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, Schorenstrasse 16, CH 8603 Schwerzenbach, Switzerland
Prog Neurobiol 70:319-45. 2003..Thus, the hippocampal modulation of these sensorimotor processes appears to reflect multiple operations, rather than one unitary operation...
- Distinct contributions of hippocampal NMDA and AMPA receptors to encoding and retrieval of one-trial place memoryTobias Bast
Laboratory for Cognitive Neuroscience, Division of Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh EH8 9JZ, United Kingdom
J Neurosci 25:5845-56. 2005..The contributions of hippocampal NMDA and AMPA receptors to one-trial allocentric place memory may be central to episodic memory and related episodic-like forms of memory in rats...
- Dorsal hippocampus and classical fear conditioning to tone and context in rats: effects of local NMDA-receptor blockade and stimulationTobias Bast
Behavioral Neurobiology Laboratory, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, Schwerzenbach, Switzerland
Hippocampus 13:657-75. 2003..The role of the dorsal hippocampus and local NMDA receptor-mediated processes in fear conditioning to tone and context is discussed in comparison with ventral hippocampal processes...
- From rapid place learning to behavioral performance: a key role for the intermediate hippocampusTobias Bast

PLoS Biol 7:e1000089. 2009....
- Manganese-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MEMRI) of rat brain after systemic administration of MnCl₂: hippocampal signal enhancement without disruption of hippocampus-dependent behaviorStewart J Jackson
Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems CCNS, School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK
Behav Brain Res 216:293-300. 2011..Our results indicate that 200 μmol/kg MnCl₂ produces hippocampal MR signal enhancement without disrupting hippocampus-dependent behavior on a rapid place learning task, even though attention must be paid to peripheral side effects...
- Effects of hippocampal N-methyl-D-aspartate infusion on locomotor activity and prepulse inhibition: differences between the dorsal and ventral hippocampusWei Ning Zhang
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, Schwerzenbach
Behav Neurosci 116:72-84. 2002..Hippocampal overactivity has been associated with schizophrenia. The findings suggest that overstimulation of the ventral hippocampal projections may contribute to behavioral outcomes related to psychotic symptoms...

J Comp Neurol 446:58-67. 2002..They may reflect weaker regulation of extracellular DA, favoring DAergic volume transmission, in associative than striatal forebrain regions...
- Significance of dopamine transmission in the rat medial prefrontal cortex for conditioned fearMarie A Pezze
Laboratory of Behavioral Neurobiology, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich ETH, Switzerland
Cereb Cortex 13:371-80. 2003..The reduction of conditioned fear by prefrontal infusion of both cis-flupenthixol and D-amphetamine may reflect normal expression of conditioned fear requires an optimal level of mPFC dopamine activity...
