STUDY DESIGN Prospective single-group repeated-measures design. OBJECTIVE To use electromyographic (EMG) analysis during muscle testing to determine if there is a difference in function of the upper and lower parts of the serratus anterior (SA) muscle. BACKGROUND The SA muscle is a very important scapular protractor and upward rotator. Authors have(More)
Using cultured cerebral cortical neurons at mature stages (9 days in culture, d.i.c.) it was demonstrated that glutamate, NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) and to a lesser extent KA (kainate) increase the intracellular cGMP concentration ([cGMP]i) whereas no such effect was observed after exposure of the cells to QA (quisqualate) and AMPA(More)
The cytotoxic potential of (1S,3R)-1-amino-cyclopentane-1,3-dicarboxylic acid (t-ACPD) in cultured murine cerebral cortical neurones was examined. Exposure to t-ACPD (1 mM, 16 h) did not induce cytotoxicity per se or affect N-methyl-D-aspartate-induced toxicity. Phosphoinositide hydrolysis was weakly stimulated by t-ACPD (1 mM), while no alteration of(More)
