Modified formalin test: characteristic biphasic pain response
&NA; A modified formalin test in mice was investigated. The pain response curve induced by 0.5% formalin was biphasic, having 2 peaks, from 0 to 5 min (first phase) and from 15 to 20 min (secondExpand

Expression of Foxp2, a gene involved in speech and language, in the developing and adult striatum
Many members of the forkhead/winged helix transcriptional factors are known to be regulators of embryogenesis. Mutations of the Fox gene family have been implicated in a range of human developmentalExpand

Foxp2 Controls Synaptic Wiring of Corticostriatal Circuits and Vocal Communication by Opposing Mef2C
We present causal evidence that Mef2c inhibition by Foxp2 in neonatal mouse striatum controls synaptogenesis of corticostriatal inputs and vocalization in neonates. Expand

Chemical and optical properties of 2003 Siberian forest fire smoke observed at the summit of Mt. Fuji, Japan
Boreal forest fires are one of the major emission sources of trace atmospheric constituents in mid and high latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere. From late May through early June 2003, dense smokeExpand

Changes in neurotrophin responsiveness during the development of cerebellar granule neurons
Neurotrophins and their receptors are widespread in the developing and mature CNS. Identifying the differentiation state of neurotrophin-responsive cells provides a basis for understanding theExpand

CFD simulation of mixing in anaerobic digesters.
A three-dimensional CFD model incorporating the rheological properties of sludge was developed and applied to quantify mixing in a full-scale anaerobic digester. The results of the model were foundExpand

Protection of the retina by rapid diffusion of hydrogen: administration of hydrogen-loaded eye drops in retinal ischemia-reperfusion injury.
PURPOSE Retinal ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury by transient elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) is known to induce neuronal damage through the generation of reactive oxygen species. StudyExpand

SUMO-1 immunoreactivity co-localizes with phospho-Tau in APP transgenic mice but not in mutant Tau transgenic mice
Sumoylation is a post-translational modification process that is supposed to be implicated in the pathogenesis of several neurodegenerative diseases. Recently, the microtubule-associated protein TauExpand

Expression of FOXP2 in the developing monkey forebrain: Comparison with the expression of the genes FOXP1, PBX3, and MEIS2
By using the developing monkey brain as a model for human development, we investigated the expression pattern of the FOXP2 gene, a member of the FOX family of transcription factors in the developingExpand

Identification of a developmentally regulated striatum-enriched zinc-finger gene, Nolz-1, in the mammalian brain.
Neural information processed through the striatum of the basal ganglia is crucial for sensorimotor and psychomotor functions. Genes that are highly expressed in the striatum during development may beExpand
