Conventional and functional proteomics have significant potential to expand our understanding of traumatic brain injury (TBI) but have not yet been used. The purpose of the present study was to examine global hippocampal protein changes in postnatal day (PND) 17 immature rats 24 h after moderate controlled cortical impact (CCI). Silver nitrate stains or(More)
Adenosine is an endogenous neuroprotectant via anti-excitotoxic effects at A(1) receptors, and blood flow promoting and anti-inflammatory effects at A(2a) receptors. Previous studies showed improved motor function after fluid percussion injury (FPI) in rats treated with the broad-spectrum adenosine receptor agonist 2-chloroadenosine (2-CA). We studied the(More)
This paper describes an alternaLive technique to provide multithreading in an enhanced C language. In contrast to the traditional design of a thread library, which usually utilizes a few lines of assembly code to switch control between threads, the technique we use is based on compile-time program transformations and a run-time library. Since this approach(More)
We made detailed cardiorespiratory measurements from homing pigeons during quiet rest and steady wind tunnel flight. Our pigeons satisfied their 17.4-fold increase in oxygen consumption during flight with a 7.4-fold increase in cardiac output (Q) and a 2.4-fold increase in blood oxygen extraction. Q was increased primarily by increasing heart rate sixfold.(More)
