We used transmission electron microscopy to study ultrastructural changes accompanying synaptogenesis in the fetal and postnatal mouse visual cortex (primary visual cortex). Immunostaining and DiI diolistic assay were also employed in order to evaluate synaptophysin expression and dendritic spine development. Nascent synapses were seen as early as E15,(More)
Radial glial cells are stem cells that play an important role in neuronal migration and proliferation in the developing brain. However, how radial glial cells contribute to the lamination of the cerebellar cortex is not well understood. We therefore used immunohistochemistry and BrdU labeling to follow radial glial cell differentiation, cell migration and(More)
Studies have shown that there are strong interactions between gustatory and visceral sensations in the central nervous system when rats ingest sweet foods or solutions. To investigate the role of the subdiaphragmatic vagi in transmitting general visceral information during the process of drinking sweet-tasting solutions, we examined the effects of(More)
Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand or Apo2 ligand is a member of the tumor necrosis factor superfamily of cytokines that induces apoptosis upon binding to its death domain-containing transmembrane receptors, death receptors 4 and 5 (DR4, DR5). However, DR5 is also expressed in the developing CNS where it appears to play a role unrelated(More)
AIMS The prenatal ethanol exposure induced neuroapoptosis and neuron loss in visual cortex would be investigated in mice at P0, P7 and P14. METHODS Intubating pregnant mice ethanol daily began on E5 and continued through the pup's birth. The neuroapoptosis in visual cortex was visualized by the caspase 3 immunocytochemistry, and the neuron loss was(More)
Cajal-Retzius cells are reelin-secreting neurons in the marginal zone of the neocortex and hippocampus. The aim of this study was to investigate Cajal-Retzius cells in Alzheimer's disease pathology. Results revealed that the number of Cajal-Retzius cells markedly reduced with age in both wild type and in mice over-expressing the Swedish double mutant form(More)
The paper describes Agent Supported Question Answering system (ASQA) that assists collaborative learning in the classroom using networked computers. When a student sends any question to the system, the supporting agent searches FAQ stored in the system or forwards the question to an another student selected, then the student can get an answer for the(More)
