Maternal Deprivation Induces Memory Deficits That Are Reduced by One Aerobic Exercise Shot Performed after the Learning Session
Hippocampal dopamine and norepinephrine levels on nonmaternal-deprived and maternal-deprived rats. Rats were trained in the OR task; some of them were submitted to an aerobic exercise shot, and after, hippocampus was removed. Bars depict HPLC dopamine (a) and norepinephrine (b) levels in hippocampal homogenates (). All bars with letter “A” are statistically equal and differ significantly to all bars with letter “B.” on ANOVA followed by Tukey’s multiple comparison test; per group, analyzed in triplicate. OR = object recognition test; NMD = nonmaternal-deprived rats; MD = maternal-deprived rats; NMD+FAE = nonmaternal-deprived rats submitted to aerobic exercise familiarization; MD+FAE = maternal-deprived rats submitted to aerobic exercise familiarization; NMD+AE = nonmaternal-deprived rats submitted to aerobic exercise familiarization and to an aerobic exercise session; MD+AE = maternal-deprived rats submitted to aerobic exercise familiarization and to an aerobic exercise session.
