AbstractIn an animal model of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), our previous studies showed mitochondrial stress-induced apoptosis in the hippocampus. Metformin, the most commonly prescribed anti-diabetic drug, exerts its effects through 5 ′-adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activation. It was shown that a neuroprotective role was gradually established against stroke, spinal cord injury and Parkinson’s disease. The aim of this study was to explore the role of the AMPK pathway in neuronal apoptosis in the hipp ocampus using a rat model of PTSD. The model PTSD rats received acute exposu...
