Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, California, USA
Hippocampus 18:1103-11. 2008..These findings illustrate the potential beneficial effects of increasing MR signaling or decreasing GR signaling to enhance specific aspects of cognitive function...
- Mineralocorticoid receptor overexpression in basolateral amygdala reduces corticosterone secretion and anxietyRupshi Mitra
Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305, USA
Biol Psychiatry 66:686-90. 2009..Prolonged and heavy occupancy of GRs tends to mediate the deleterious effects of glucocorticoids on neurons, whereas MR occupancy tends to mediate beneficial effects...

Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305 5020, USA
J Neurosci 26:11637-43. 2006..Thus, ER/GR expression enhances spatial memory performance and blocks the impairing effects of GCs on such performance...
- Short toxic methamphetamine schedule impairs object recognition task in male ratsVeronica Bisagno
Department of Psychology, Hunter College of the City University of New York, 695 Park Ave, New York, NY 10021, USA
Brain Res 940:95-101. 2002..Our results demonstrate that a short toxic schedule induced profound changes in neurochemistry (comparable to classic acute toxic models of MA: four injections of 10 mg/kg) but selective declines in behavioral tasks...
