We show that it is feasible to monitor the synchronized population spikes of the thalamocortical axonal terminals and cortical neurons outside the brain using high-resolution magnetoencephalography (MEG). Electrical stimulation of the snout elicited somatic-evoked magnetic fields (SEFs) above the primary somatosensory cortex (SI) of the piglet. The SEFs(More)
OBJECTIVE In humans, the somatic evoked potentials (SEPs) and magnetic fields (SEFs) elicited by peripheral nerve stimulation contain high-frequency oscillations (HFOs) around 600 Hz superimposed on the initial cortical response N20. Responses elicited by snout stimulation in the swine also contain similar HFOs during the rising phase of the porcine N20.(More)
The antigenic targets recognized by naturally occurring CD4(+) CD25(+) regulatory T cells (T reg cells) have been elusive. We have serologically defined a series of broadly expressed self-antigens derived from chemically induced mouse sarcomas by serological identification of antigens by recombinant expression cloning (SEREX). CD4(+) CD25(+) T cells from(More)
This study examined the effect of diabetes on neural regeneration in vitro. Nodose ganglia (NG) with vagal nerve fibers, dissected from streptozotocin-induced diabetic and normal C57BL/6J mice were embedded in collagen gel. After 3 and 7 days in culture, the numbers of regenerating neurites from transected nerve terminals of NG in diabetic mice were(More)
A 50-year-old man had undergone right nucleus ventrointermedius (Vim) thalamotomy 1 year previously, resulting in the disappearance of left hand tremor. However, he presented with right distal and proximal tremor including the axial trunk, neck, and head. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the left Vim for these symptoms was unsuccessful. Attempts were made to(More)
Effects of capsaicin on autonomic nerves in the nasal mucosa and olfactory bulb of toluene diisocyanate sensitized guinea pigs were studied using immunocytochemistry. In the nasal mucosa, substance P (SP)- and tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)-like immunoreactive (SPI and THI) fibers seemed to decrease after capsaicin application. Calcitonin gene-related peptide(More)
A 53-year-old right-handed Japanese man had a callosal disconnection syndrome associated with an occlusion of the left pericallosal artery. Computerized tomography scan confirmed a left medial lesion affecting the cingulate gyrus, the paracentral lobule, the precuneus of the left hemisphere, and most probably the corpus callosum. This anterior cerebral(More)
When wild-type BALB/c mice were transferred with OVA-specific Th2 cells followed by OVA inhalation, a severe eosinophilia, mucus hypersecretion and airway hyper-responsiveness (AHR) was induced in parallel with a marked elevation of IL-4, IL-5 and IL-13 levels in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF). However, neither eosinophilia, AHR nor mucus(More)
