We examined the effects of prolonged voluntary wheel-running on skeletal muscle functional and/or structural characteristics in rats. Male Sprague-Dawley rats (5 weeks old) were divided into five groups: (1) 15W-SC, sedentary controls housed in normal plastic cages until age 15 weeks; (2) 15W-VE, housed in a voluntary-exercise (running-wheel) device(More)
Our present study shows that transient changes in relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV) induced by stimulation with bicuculline under six different conditions of anesthesia can be detected with high spatial resolution functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Bicuculline was administered at a low dose to induce neural activation, and no seizure activity(More)
Habitual exercise and dietary restriction are commonly recommended to prevent or ameliorate obesity and lifestyle-related diseases, including fatty liver. This study investigated the effects of habitual exercise and dietary restriction on hepatic triglyceride (TG) levels, serum leptin levels, and histological adipocyte size in periepididymal adipose tissue(More)
PRIMARY OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess skeletal muscle showing a complete functional recovery after induction of pan-necrotic lesions in the right sensorimotor cortex in rats. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A focal lesion of the right sensorimotor cortex was induced photochemically. Rats were divided into three groups; the sham-operated group(More)
