The canine flexor carpi radialis is subdivided into 2 portions. The radial portion which occupies one third of the cross-section is located caudomedially and is composed only of large type I fibres (43.53 +/- 0.6 microns minimum diameter) in levels close to the insertion. The cubital portion is located craniolaterally and contains fewer and smaller type I(More)
The objective of this study was to define the anatomy of the cranioencephalic structures and associated formations in camel using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MR images were acquired in sagittal, transverse and oblique dorsal planes, using spin-echo techniques, a magnet of 1.5 T and a standard human body coil. MR images were compared with corresponding(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to define the magnetic resonance (MR) imaging appearance of the brain and associated structures of the equine head. MR images were acquired in oblique dorsal (T2-weighted), sagittal (T1-weighted), and transverse planes (T2-weighted), using a magnet of 1.5 Tesla and a human body coil. Relevant anatomic structures were(More)
Magnetic resonance images were obtained from two isolated horses' heads. Ten mm thick, T1-weighted images were taken with a 1.5 Tesla magnet and a body coil, and compared with the corresponding frozen cross-sections of the heads, relevant structures being identified and labelled at each level. The images should provide reference material for clinical(More)

Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) have been popular drug targets for a variety of central nervous system (CNS) disease models, ranging from seizures to schizophrenia. The current study aimed to determine whether mGluRs participate in lateral hypothalamic (LH) stimulation of feeding. To this end, we used satiated adult male Sprague-Dawley rats(More)
