The effects of diet induced obesity and metabolic irregularities on hippocampal based cognition and neuroplasticity in young female and male rats.

Jurdak, Nicole.


  • Recent research has associated obesity with cognitive impairments and alterations in brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), with the majority of studies examining this in older adult or aging animals. To expand upon these efforts, two experiments were performed to examine the effects of diet-induced obesity (DIO) on spatial performance and hippocampal BDNF expression in young adult female and ... read more
