Recent evidence suggests that the substantia nigra (SN) may be involved in the modification of various experimental epilepsy models. We determined the role of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)ergic activity of the SN and the target sites of SN efferents, the pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) and superior colliculus (SC), in pentylenetetrazol-induced seizures in(More)
Interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) are pacemaker cells for the spontaneous muscular contractions and neuromodulators that mediate neurotransmission from enteric neurons to smooth muscle cells in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. They express c-Kit, and the antibody for c-Kit (especially ACK2) has been a useful tool for functional and morphological studies.(More)
