Summary of "Prenatal Exposure to Antipsychotics Disrupts the Plasticity of Dentate Neurons and Memory in Adult Male Mice."

With the growing use of second-generation antipsychotics for the treatment of a spectrum of psychiatric illnesses in pregnancy, concerns have been raised about the long-term impact of these medications on offspring neurodevelopment. However, preclinical and clinical evidence on the lasting effects of prenatal antipsychotic exposure is still sparse.

A calcium-binding protein that mediates calcium HOMEOSTASIS in KIDNEYS, BRAIN, and other tissues. It is found in well-defined populations of NEURONS and is involved in CALCIUM SIGNALING and NEURONAL PLASTICITY. It is regulated in some tissues by VITAMIN D.

Axons of certain cells in the DENTATE GYRUS. They project to the polymorphic layer of the dentate gyrus and to the proximal dendrites of PYRAMIDAL CELLS of the HIPPOCAMPUS. These mossy fibers should not be confused with mossy fibers that are cerebellar afferents (see NERVE FIBERS).
