We proposed a novel MRI tracer-based method for the determination of water diffusion in the brain extracellular space (ECS). The measuring system was validated in 32 Sprague Dawley rats. The rats were randomly divided into four groups with different injection sites: 1) caudate nucleus (Cn.); 2) thalamus (T.); 3) cortex (Cor.); and 4) substantia nigra (Sn.).(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the changes in the neuronal microenvironment of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory induced by Jing-well points bloodletting acupuncture (WPBA) and to explore the neuroprotective mechanism of WPBA in stroke. METHODS Adult male Sprague Dawley (n = 32) rats were randomly divided into four groups of eight animals each:(More)
The factors influencing dormancy release in lily bulbs strongly affect commercialization success, but the mechanism of dormancy release is still unclear. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can detect changes in morphology and water status in a living plant bulb and aid in investigating release factors. To evaluate whether MRI could be used to detect(More)
