This study aimed to establish a model of synaptic plasticity by the activation of metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) I in rat medial septal diagonal band (MSDB). Electrophysiological experiment was performed to record the theta frequency oscillation activities in rat MSDB slices. The data were recorded and analyzed with Spike 2 (CED, Cambridge, UK).(More)
This paper investigates the design optimization of an electrostatically actuated microcantilever resonator that operates in air. The nonlinear effects of electrostatic actuation and air damping make the structural dynamics modeling more complex. There is a need for an efficient way to simulate the system behavior so that the design can be more readily(More)
Atorvastatin has been shown to affect cognitive functions in rodents and humans. However, the underlying mechanism is not fully understood. Because hippocampal gamma oscillations (γ, 20-80 Hz) are associated with cognitive functions, we studied the effect of atorvastatin on persistent kainate-induced γ oscillation in the CA3 area of rat hippocampal slices.(More)
Cyclic stretch increases Na+/K+-ATPase activity and abundance in several tissues, including skeletal muscle cells. The present study was undertaken to investigate whether Na+/K+-ATPase undergoes acute changes in its catalytic activity in response to cyclic stretch. Na+/K+-ATPase activity increased after continuously stretched for 6 h, and reached the(More)
