Neurotrophins have traditionally been regarded as slow-acting signals essential for neuronal survival and differentiation. Recent studies with neuronal slices, cultures and nerve ending preparations have shown that neurotrophins generate acute changes in nerve activity. Among the secondary sensory cells are the inner hair cells (IHC) and taste buds, cells(More)
BACKGROUND Induction of neovascularization by releasing therapeutic growth factors is a promising application of cell-based gene therapy to treat ischemia-related problems. In the present study, we have developed a new strategy based on nucleofection with alternative solution and cuvette to promote collateral growth and re-establishment of circulation in(More)
Microiontophoretic techniques were used to examine the changes in activity of inner half cell afferents in the guinea pig following circumscribed penetration of cochlear bone with erbium:YSGG laser pulses. Neuronal responses to the application of the glutamate agonists N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) and alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid(More)
