The brain-gut peptide acylated-ghrelin (A-Ghr) is a potent growth hormone (GH) secretagogue substance. A-Ghr is also known to influence on memory and learning processes. Its effect is mediated partly via GH secretagogue receptor (GHS-R) type 1a. The amygdaloid body (AMY) plays important role in memory and learning processes. Projections of ghrelinergic(More)
There are several experimental models for the in vivo investigation of myocardial infarction (MI) in small (mouse, rat) and large animals (dog, pig, sheep and baboons). The application of large animal models raises ethical concerns, the design of experiments needs longer follow-up times, requiring proper breeding and housing conditions, therefore resulting(More)
Ghrelin (Ghr) has two main forms in the blood: the acylated (A-Ghr) and non-acylated (NA-Ghr) Ghr. A-Ghr was discovered as a potent growth hormone (GH) secretion increasing substance acting on GH secretagouge receptor (GHS-R) type 1a. A-Ghr facilitates food intake after its i.p., i.c.v. or direct hypothalamic application. Immunohistological assays(More)
The diagnostic characteristics of electromechanical mapping (EMM) were evaluated in porcine myocardial infarction (MI) models with the parallel application of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (cMRI) from the aspect of different pathophysiology and localization. Balloon occlusion in the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD balloon group) or coil(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate the potential contribution of morphometric MRI analysis in comparison to other modalities, such as MEG, SPECT and PET, in identifying the epileptogenic focus in patients with cryptogenic epilepsy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Study inclusion was limited to epilepsy patients with a monolobar focus hypothesis, as concluded(More)
