    • A putative role for hypothalamic glucocorticoid receptors in hypertension induced by prenatal undernutrition in the rat 

      Pérez, Hernán; Soto Moyano, Rubén; Ruiz, Samuel; Hernández, Alejandro; Sierralta, Walter; Olivares, Ricardo; Núñez, Héctor; Flores, Osvaldo; Morgan, Carlos; López Valladares, Luis; Gatica, Arnaldo; Flores, Francisco J. (2010)
      Prenatal undernutrition induces hypertension later in life, possibly by disturbing the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis through programming decreased expression of hypothalamic glucocorticoid receptors. We examined the ...
    • Effect of ketamine on spinal cord nociceptive transmission in normal and monoarthritic rats 

      Laurido, Claudio; Pelissier, Teresa; Pérez, Hernán; Flores, Francisco; Hernández, Alejandro (Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2001)
      The effects of systemically and intrathecally administered ketamine on spinal wind-up of normal and monoarthritic rats were studied by using C-fiber reflex responses evoked by repetitive (0.6Hz) electric stimulation. Both ...
    • Effect of melatonin on rat spinal cord nociceptive transmission 

      Laurido, Claudio; Pelissier Serrano, Teresa; Soto Moyano, Rubén; López Valladares, Luis; Flores, Francisco; Hernández, Alejandro (Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2002)
      Melatonin has been shown to exert potent antinociception but the sites and mechanisms of action underlying this effect have not yet been clarified. The effect of melatonin on spinal cord nociceptive transmission was studied ...
    • Melatonin administration impairs visuo-spatial performance and inhibits neocortical long-term potentiation in rats 

      Soto Moyano, Rubén; Burgos, Héctor; Flores, Francisco; Valladares Boasi, Luis; Sierralta, Walter; Fernández Hidalgo, Víctor; Pérez, Hernán; Hernández, Paula; Hernández, Alejandro (PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2006-10)
      Melatonin has been shown to inhibit long-term potentiation (LTP) in hippocampal slices of rats. Since LTP may be one of the main mechanisms by which memory traces are encoded and stored in the central nervous system, it ...
    • Viewing strategy of Cebus monkeys during free exploration of natural images 

      Berger, Denise; Pazienti, Antonio; Flores, Francisco J.; Nawrot, Martin P.; Maldonado, Pedro E.; Grün, Sonja (Elsevier, 2012)
      Humans and other primates move their eyes several times per second to foveate at different locations of a visual scene. What features of a scene guide eye movements in natural vision? We recorded eye movements of three ...
