    Matthew D McEchron
    Department of Neural and Behavioral Science, Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, Hershey, PA 17033, USA
    Nutr Neurosci 8:277-85. 2005
    ..This suggests that ID-induced learning deficits may be the result of reductions in synaptic transmission throughout the hippocampus, and possibly in other learning and memory centers...
  2. ncbi request reprint Perinatal nutritional iron deficiency impairs hippocampus-dependent trace eyeblink conditioning in rats
    Matthew D McEchron
    Department of Neural and Behavioral Sciences, Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, Hershey, PA 17033, USA
    Dev Neurosci 30:243-54. 2008
    ..This study suggests that perinatal ID impairs motoric learning by altering higher-order learning centers like the hippocampus more so than by altering the skeletal motor system...

    Matthew D McEchron
    Department of Physiology and Institute for Neuroscience, Northwestern University Medical School, Chicago, Illinois 60611, USA
    J Neurosci 23:1535-47. 2003
    ..The percentage of neurons encoding trace duration was largest when rabbits exhibited significant fear responses to the CS, suggesting that trace encoding was related to the strength of the CS and US association...
  4. ncbi request reprint Trace fear conditioning is reduced in the aging rat
    Matthew D McEchron
    Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, Hershey, PA 17033, USA
    Neurobiol Learn Mem 82:71-6. 2004
    ..These data show that HR and freezing are effective measures for detecting aging-related deficits in trace fear conditioning...
  5. ncbi request reprint Perinatal nutritional iron deficiency permanently impairs hippocampus-dependent trace fear conditioning in rats
    Matthew D McEchron
    Department of Neural and Behavioral Science, Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, Hershey, PA 17033, USA
    Nutr Neurosci 8:195-206. 2005
    ..The ID-induced learning impairments in this study, however, were not due to altered motor activity because learning was assessed using non-motor heart rate responses...

    Marieke R Gilmartin
    Department of Neural and Behavioral Sciences, Pennsylvania State University, Milton S Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA 17033, USA
    Behav Neurosci 119:1496-510. 2005
    ..These sustained prelimbic responses may provide a bridging code that allows for overlapping representations of CS and US information within the trace fear conditioning circuit...

    Marieke R Gilmartin
    Department of Neural and Behavioral Sciences, Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, Hershey, PA 17033, USA

  1. Iron deficiency, hippocampal development, and learning
    MATTHEW MCECHRON; Fiscal Year: 2004
    ..Experiment 3 will determine if ID during postnatal development produces long-term impairments in hippocampal neurogenesis and hippocampus-dependent learning in young adult rats. ..
  2. Iron nutrition and impaired development of cerebellum-dependent motor learning
    MATTHEW MCECHRON; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..Moreover, eyeblink conditioning is often used in humans; therefore, this animal learning proposal could be critical for future eyeblink conditioning studies with ID in humans. ..
