The mongolian gerbil was introduced as a stroke model because of its incomplete circle of Willis. Unilateral carotid ligation ischemia produced in such a fashion was not effective in all gerbils. We have selected gerbils by examination of the ocular fundus to study the level of amino acids and hydroxyl free radicals (OH0 formation of DHBA, dihydroxybenzoic(More)
The recent surge of the “Maker” movement (Anderson 2012) is largely driven by the increasing availability of the personal fabrication technology such as 3D printing (Lipson & Kurman 2013). Widespread diffusion and adoption of personal fabricators based on von Neumann style general purpose constructors are considered as one of the central possibilities of(More)
This study examined brain-stem auditory evoked potentials response (BAEP) changes in the gerbil after temporary occlusion of the left carotid artery. Fourteen adult gerbils were subjected to unilateral left carotid ligation for 30 min. BAEPs were registered before and 5 min after occlusion, then 5 min, 60 min, 120 min, 24 h, 7 days and 28 days after release(More)
The role of prostaglandins (PG) has been evoked in the mechanism of action of indapamide. Indeed, PG can act in the regulation of the blood pressure (BP) at different levels: vasodilatation, diuretic, natriuretic, antagonism of angiotensin II and vasopressin (VP), action on adrenergic system. To confirm this hypothesis, we studied the action of certain(More)
Cerebral ischemia, which is characterized by depletion of oxygen and glucose, as well as of amino acids, might produce changes in concentration and/or turnover of monoamines and indoleamines in the brain. Moreover, the effect of ischemia on overall protein synthesis in brain has been well documented in various animal models. To study this phenomenon, 3(More)
