Selective Vulnerability of the CA1 Sector in the Gerbil After 5 Minutes of Global Ischemia: Relationship to Disturbances in Protein Synthesis and to Motor Hyperactivity
Transient forebrain ischemia of the gerbil is a widely used experimental model for the study of the phenomenon of selective vulnerability in the CA1 sector of hippocampus. Despite the fact that detailed studies are available on the time course of various hemodynamic , metabolic [5,12,14], and neuropathological alterations [2,6,7], the causal relationship between the pathobiochemical processes and the development of neuronal death is still poorly understood.
