Introduction: Sensory processing is profoundly regulated by brain neuromodulatory systems. One of the main neuromodulators is serotonin which influences higher cognitive functions such as different aspects of perceptual processing. So, malfunction in the serotonergic system may lead to visual illusion in psychiatric disorders such as autism and sch...
It has been hypothesized that Gamma cortical oscillations play important roles in numerous cognitive processes and may involve psychiatric conditions including anxiety, schizophrenia, and autism. Gamma rhythms are commonly observed in many brain regions during both waking and sleep states, yet their functions and mechanisms remain a matter of debat...
Background Diabetes is a devastating metabolic disease that causes long‐term damage to various organs. An important leading complication of diabetes is a degenerative effect on the reproductive system including infertility and gonadal dysfunction. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of experimental type I and II diabetes on the levels of lutei...

Cholinergic inputs from the basal forebrain modulate various visual cortex functions, including visual discrimination, contrast response function, orientation tuning, signal to noise ratio (SNR), and plasticity. Acetylcholine (ACh) has been known to exert its modulatory action via two distinct acetylcholine receptors (AChR), namely nicotinic ACh re...
Aim: In addition to learning and memory impairments, diabetes may also brings about neuronal loss in different regions of the brain specially hippocampus. In this line, the present study was conducted to investigate the effects of type I (T1D) and type II (T2D) diabetes on cognitive function and hippocampal neuronal density in rat. Methods: Thre...
Background: Diabetes is one of metabolic disorders characterized by hyperglycemia due to defects in insulin secretion, insulin function, or both. Diabetes induces neuronal death in different regions of the brain especially hippocampus. In this regard, the present study has been conducted to compare the effects of type I and type II diabetes on hipp...

Because of complexities of 5-HT function in cortical networks we would like to measure exact subthreshold and supra threshold responses of different excitatory and inhibitory neurons in primary visual cortex (V1) to different orientations and contrasts.
The cholinergic system is a potent neuromodulatory system that plays critical roles in cortical plasticity, attention and learning.In this project, we are examining how the cholinergic system modulate the activity of neurons of V1 in response to stimulus contrast.
