BACKGROUND Local field potentials may allow a more precise analysis of the brain electrical activity than the electroencephalogram. In this study, local field potentials were recorded in the thalamocortical axis of rats to (i) compare the performance of several indexes of anesthetic depth and (ii) investigate the existence of thalamocortical correlated or(More)
Congenital middle ear malformations are rare. Most part of them are usually associated with other malformations, such as aural atresia, microtia, and dysmorphic craniofacial features. A clinical case of a 24-year-old male with a right-sided conductive hearing loss since his childhood, without craniofacial malformation, is presented. He was proposed for(More)
In silico mining of EST data, Real Time PCR, and Affymetrix GeneChip technology was used to characterize the transcriptional response of Vitis vinifera to the Pierce's disease (PD) pathogen Xylella fastidiosa (Xf). We have determined that susceptible V. vinifera responds to Xylella infection with a massive redirection of gene transcription. This(More)
This is a report on a patient's case with a pituitary adenoma that produced prolactin with amyloid deposits in the sphenoid sinus and the clivus. The patient, a 59 year old man, has suffered from headaches for the last 25 years, with hyperprolactinemia. Imaging studies including skull x-ray films, cranial tomography, and magnetic resonance showed the(More)
