Partial loss in septo-hippocampal cholinergic neurons alters memory-dependent measures of brain connectivity without overt memory deficits.

Brayda-Bruno L, Mons N, Yee BK, Micheau J, Abrous DN, Nogues X, Marighetto A (2013) Partial loss in septo-hippocampal cholinergic neurons alters memory-dependent measures of brain connectivity without overt memory deficits. Neurobiol Dis 54:372-381. doi: 10.1016/j.nbd.2013.01.010

Summary: The authors examined whether partial degeneration of septo-hippocampal neurons alters brain activity patterns even without overt memory loss. Mice received 45 ng of mu p75-SAP (Cat. #IT-16) into the medial septal area. Lesioned animals had significantly altered functional activities in the brain, despite lack of an overt behavioral deficit. Some changes observed are also altered with the initial signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
