14) Docosahexaenoic Acid Rescues Synaptogenesis Impairment and Long-Term Memory Deficits Caused by Postnatal Multiple Sevoflurane Exposures

G Tao et al; Biomed Research International 2016

“Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a physiologically important omega-3 (𝜔-3) long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LC-PUFA), is a structural component for synaptosomal membrane, synaptic vesicles, and growth cones”.
During embryonic and postnatal period, DHA plays an important role in the neural development”.

DHA was proved to display good neuroprotective effect DHA rectifies the synaptogenesis impairment and long-term memory deficits in postnatal caused by multiple sevoflurane exposures”.
