It is well established that partial denervation causes the formation of new synapses within denervated areas. It is also possible that synapse formation and remodeling occurs outside denervated zones. In this study we evaluate this possibility by examining the effect of a unilateral entorhinal lesion on the number and characteristics of synapses in(More)
Partial denervation of the dentate molecular layer causes sprouting and reinnervation by undamaged afferents within the denervated zones of young adult animals and to a lesser extent in aged animals. We have previously reported a non-degenerative remodeling of the dentate molecular layer in areas outside the primary denervated zone of young adult rats after(More)
Although aging well socially (engagement with life) is as important as aging well personally (illness avoidance and functioning) (Rowe & Kahn, 1998), it has received less research attention. A caring (CE) and a productive (PE) form of engagement were derived from an analysis of Chinese cultural meanings of engagement, and combined with illness avoidance and(More)
Inhibition of c-Jun N-terminal kinase pathway attenuates cerebral vasospasm after experimental subarachnoid hemorrhage through the suppression of apoptosis. . The roles of cross-talk mechanisms in the signal transduction systems in the pathophysiology of the cerebral vasospasm after subarachnoid haemorrhage – what we know and what we do not know. The effect(More)
