A "barrel" is an interconnected network of layer IV neurons that is an important component of a functional cortical column in the whisker area of the rodent primary somatosensory cortex. The present study was undertaken in order to resolve apparently conflicting findings from single-unit studies of barrel neurons conducted in rats maintained under different(More)

OBJECTIVE During sepsis, a two- to four-fold increase in circulating growth hormone (GH) is seen with 40-50% reductions in plasma insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I. The suppressors of cytokine signaling (SOCS), inhibitors of cytokine, and growth factor signaling via the janus kinase (JAK)/signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) pathway have(More)
The effects of natural porcine and synthetic secretin, given by intravenous bolus or infusion, on intestinal lymph flow and protein composition in unanaesthetized rats were studied. Both forms of secretin increased lymph flow and protein output from the lymph fistula; dose-response relationships were determined. No change was observed in protein(More)
