    John Larson
    Department of Psychiatry, University of Illinois at Chicago, 60612, USA
    Behav Neurosci 116:588-99. 2002
    ..Good retention of olfactory cues was seen even at the longest memory delay. Automated testing of olfactory discriminations should be useful for assessing learning and memory abilities in genetically modified mice...

    Department of Psychiatry, College of Medicine, University of Illinois, 1601 W Taylor St, Chicago, IL 60612, USA
    Brain Res 971:40-6. 2003
    ..Whether or not the olfactory learning deficit observed in HR mice is related to the low dendritic spine density or GAD67 reduction observed in hippocampus and cortex are currently under investigation...

    John Larson
    Department of Psychiatry, Psychiatric Institute, University of Illinois, Chicago, Illinois 60612, USA
    Neuroreport 20:1634-7. 2009
    ..We suggest that brain tolerance to hypoxia may result from slowed or arrested brain development in these extremely long-lived animals...

    John Larson
    Psychiatric Institute, Department of Psychiatry, College of Medicine, University of Illinois, Chicago, Illinois 60612, USA
    J Neurosci 25:9460-9. 2005
    ..No differences in hippocampal LTP were observed in WT and KO mice at any ages. The results indicate that FMRP deficiency is associated with an age-dependent and region-selective impairment in long-term synaptic plasticity...
