This paper describes a Deep Brain Stimulation device, portable, for chronic experiments on rodents in the context of Parkinson's disease. Our goal is to equip the animal with a device that mimics the human therapeutic conditions. It implies to respect a set of properties such as bilateral current-mode and charge-balanced stimulation, as well as(More)
There is increasing evidence to suggest that the neuronal response to hypoxia is regulated through their interactions with astrocytes. However, the hypoxia-induced molecular mechanisms within astrocytes which influence neuronal death have yet to be characterized. In this study, we investigated the roles of the nuclear receptor RORα (retinoid-related orphan(More)
Burst firing has been reported as a pathological activity of subthalamic nucleus (STN) neurons in Parkinson's disease. However, the origin of bursts and their causal link with motor deficits remain unknown. Here we tested the hypothesis that dopamine D5 receptors (D5Rs), characterized by a high constitutive activity, may contribute to the emergence of burst(More)
The design of neuro-stimulators must include a realistic model of electrode-tissue interface. Complex electrochemical phenomena associated to high levels of stimulation current give fractional and non linear behavior to this interface that simple linearized models fail to fit. This paper describes both a measurement protocol based on biphasic(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebral dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) are rare intracranial vascular lesions but can cause significant morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVES To analyze the effect of the center's experience on DAVF embolization efficacy and safety. METHODS From May 2008 to October 2014, 57 embolization procedures were attempted on 48 patients (37 men(More)
