The effect of neonatal anesthesia and pain on the developing brain is of considerable clinical importance, but few studies have evaluated noxious surgical input to the infant brain under anesthesia. Herein, the authors tested the effect of increasing isoflurane concentration on spontaneous and evoked nociceptive activity in the somatosensory cortex of rats at different postnatal ages.
- Neonatal general anesthesia causes lasting alterations in excitatory and inhibitory synaptic transmission in the ventrobasal thalamus of adolescent female rats
- Mild hypothermia ameliorates anesthesia toxicity in the neonatal macaque brain
- Using animal models to evaluate the functional consequences of anesthesia during early neurodevelopment
- microRNA‐124 attenuates isoflurane‐induced neurological deficits in neonatal rats via binding to EGR1
- Hemin treatment protects neonatal rats from sevoflurane-induced neurotoxicity via the phosphoinositide 3-kinase/Akt pathway
