The distribution of c-fos expression and NADPH-diaphorase reactivity in the cervical and lumbar segments after stimulation of the vanilloid receptors in the dorsal neck muscles with capsaicin was studied in cats anaesthetized with alpha-chloralose. After the unilateral intramuscular injection of capsaicin, the mean number of Fos-immunoreactive neurons(More)
The activity of 18 motor units (MUs) of m. biceps brachii was studied in four adults during highamplitude isotorque ramp-and-hold movements in the elbow joint. The recorded MUs had low isometric thresholds (below 6% of maximal voluntary contraction). During the examined movement, MUs of group I responded to application of subthreshold loads by increases in(More)
INTRODUCTION Expression of c-fos initiated by muscle proprioceptive signaling was studied in rats after inhibition of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) with administration of 7-nitroindazole (7-NI). METHODS Fos-immunoreactive (Fos-ir) neurons were visualized immunohistochemically in the lumbar cord after vibration of the Achilles tendon and/or 7-NI(More)
The distribution of Fos-immunoreactive (Fos-ir) and NADPH Diaphorase reactive (NADPH-dr-) neurons in the different subnuclei of amygdala and insular cortex (on the level -2,12 to -3,14 mm from bregma), and the associated changes of heart rate (HR) in intact, food-deprivated and executed food-procuring movements of rats were studied. In comparison with other(More)
The comparative study of expression of early c-fos-gene (marker of neuronal activation) and NADPH-diaphorase reactivity (NADPH-dr) was performed in the cervical spinal cord of rats in the control (intact) animal, in the state of starvation and after realization of long-lasting (repeated 4 to 12 times per minute for 30 min) motivated stereotyped(More)
The distribution of NADPH-diaphorase-reactive (NADPH-dr) neurons and neuronal processes in the cerebral cortex and basal forebrain and their association with parenchymal vessels were studied in normal adult rats using NADPH-d histochemical protocol. The intensely stained cortical interneurons and reactive subcortically originating afferents, and stained(More)
We detected changes in the gene c-fos expression induced by activation of muscle afferents in the rat spinal cord after systemic introduction of reserpine (irreversible suppressor of vesicular transporter of monoamines, 1.5 mg/kg, intraperitoneally) and with no action of this agent. Numbers of Fosimmunoreactive (Fos-ir) neurons were calculated in the gray(More)
The aim of this research was to reveal the changes in the NADPH-d reactivity in the lumbal spinal cord (L6/L7) of cats with unilateral acute myositis of the mm. gastrocnemius-soleus after intramuscular injections of carrageenan. The effect of unilateral muscle inflammation was expressed in a significant increase in the number of NADPH-d-reactive neurons in(More)
Immunohistochemical studies of c-fos expression in the lumbar and neck segments of spinal cord after fatiguing stimulation of the mm. gastrocnemius-soleus or m. trapezius and m. splenius, were carried out on the anaesthetized (chloral-hydrate 400 mg/kg, i.p.) rats. The patterns of the Fos-immunoreactive neurons distribution in the grey matter of spinal cord(More)
The aim of this research was to study the changes of the motor reflex activity (monosynaptic reflex (MSR) of the flexor and extensor muscles) and Fos immunoreactivity in lumbo-sacral spinal cord after acute induced myositis of m. gastrocnemius-soleus (GS). The experiments were carried out on ischaemic decerebrated, spinalized in C1 cats. After infiltration(More)
