Abstract

We examined if a 2 week treatment with the spin trapping agent N-tert-butyl-α-phenylnitrone (PBN) would alleviate age-related deficits in cerebellar noradrenergic function of male 21-22 month old F344 rats compared to age-matched controls. Noradrenergic receptor function of PBN-treated rats was similar to young rats whereas for non-treated rats it was typical of that previously recorded in aged rats. Thus, treatment with PBN may reverse age-related deficits in cerebellar noradrenergic receptor function.
