Sporadic reports throughout the literature have documented the spontaneous return of facial function following deliberate intraoperative sacrifice of the facial nerve. Trigeminal reinnervation of the facial muscles has been suggested as one possible mechanism for this occurrence. Evidence for the phenomenon of trigeminal neo-neurotization has been(More)
BACKGROUND Environmental stress affects the gut with dysmotility being a common consequence. Although a variety of microbes or molecules may prevent the dysmotility, none reverse the dysmotility. METHODS We have used a 1 hour restraint stress mouse model to test for treatment effects of the neuroactive microbe, L. rhamnosus JB-1™ . Motility of(More)
The purpose of this report is to summarize and integrate the findings of the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT), a randomized controlled clinical trial, and the succeeding observational follow-up of the DCCT cohort in the Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) study, regarding the effects of intensive treatment on the(More)
Intracranial activation of the facial nerve is now possible with the noninvasive techniques of magnetic stimulation. Brief magnetic pulses generated by a coil overlying the parietal scalp elicit compound muscle action potentials of similar shape and amplitude and greater latency than those produced by electroneurography. Mapping studies demonstrate the(More)
Recent data suggest that ACTH administration produces recovery of an extinguished passive avoidance response at an unusually long injection-to-test interval. The present experiment sought to explore further the durability of recovery by examining the effect of ACTH following extinction of one-way active avoidance. Adult rats were injected with 16 IU ACTH,(More)
