Neurons of the cerebellar nuclei fire spontaneous action potentials both in vitro, with synaptic transmission blocked, and in vivo, in resting animals, despite ongoing inhibition from spontaneously active Purkinje neurons. We have studied the intrinsic currents of cerebellar nuclear neurons isolated from the mouse, with an interest in understanding how(More)
The aim was to study the long-term response in the olfactory mucosa of NMRI mice after exposure to the olfactory toxicants dichlobenil (a herbicide) or methimazole (an antithyroid drug). Three and six months after exposure to dichlobenil (2x or 1 x 25 mg/kg i.p.), the dorsomedial part of the olfactory region showed a respiratory metaplasia with abundant(More)
The effect of a diet rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) on platelet phospholipid fatty acid composition, platelet aggregation, and bleeding time was studied in 10 healthy men, whose usual diet was partly replaced by fish for 11 weeks. This diet provided 2-3 g EPA per day. Two doses (3.5 and 10 mg/kg body-weight) of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) were given(More)
