We examined the effect of 1-amino-3,5-dimethyladamantane (memantine) and (+)-5-methyl-10,11-dihydro-5H-dibenzo[a,d]cyclohepten-5,10-imine (MK-801) on the inhibition of [(3)H]MK-801 binding to crude synaptic membranes of rat forebrains in the absence or presence of Ca(2+). Ca(2+) decreased the potency of memantine to inhibit [(3)H]MK-801 binding. The effect(More)
It has been shown that end-to-side coaptation and nerve bypass grafting, which are essentially two sequential end-to-side coaptations, induce axonal outgrowth in peripheral nerve injuries. However, it is unknown whether the axons regenerated after end-to-side coaptation originate by collateral sprouting at the suture site or by elongation from the spinal(More)
The SAMP6 mouse (a substrain of senescence-accelerated mice) spontaneously develops osteoporosis early in life and is, therefore, a useful model for examining the mechanisms underlying osteoporosis. We have recently established a new bone marrow transplantation (BMT) method: the bone marrow cells (BMCs) of normal allogeneic mice are directly injected into(More)
OBJECT Surgical outcome and radiographic changes after microsurgical bilateral decompression via a unilateral approach (MBDU) for lumbar spinal canal stenosis during midterm follow-up periods (> 2 years) have not been reported. The authors retrospectively investigated surgical outcomes after MBDU in patients with lumbar degenerative spondylolisthesis with(More)
OBJECT Modified cervical laminoplasty techniques have been developed to reduce postoperative axial neck pain and preserve function in patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). However, the previous studies demonstrating satisfactory surgical outcomes had a retrospective design. Here, the authors aimed to prospectively evaluate the 2-year outcomes(More)
BACKGROUND Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a challenging surgical procedure that can be used to treat severely dislocated hips. There are few reports regarding cemented THAs involving subtrochanteric shortening osteotomy (SSO), even though cemented THAs provide great advantages because the femur is generally hypoplastic with a narrow, deformed canal.

Methacholine (MCh) interacted with M(3) muscarinic receptors in rat parotid tissue slices and induced amylase secretion. MCh- and calcimycin-induced exocytosis was completely inhibited by N-[2-(N-(4-chlorocinnamyl)-N-methylaminomethyl)phenyl]-N-[2-hydroxyethyl]-4-methoxybenzenesulfonamide, N(G)-nitro-L-arginine methylester (L-NAME),(More)
OBJECT The authors retrospectively investigated the surgical outcomes and radiographically documented changes after microsurgical posterior foraminotomy with en bloc laminoplasty in patients with cervical spondylotic radiculomyelopathy (CSRM), including cervical spondylotic amyotrophy (CSA), during a period greater than 2 years. METHODS Thirty-four(More)
This paper describes a timing analysis system (ACTAS: ACcurate Timing Analysis System). This system analyzes the logical behaviors of VLSI. It verifies timings at flip-flops and detects timing errors. Then, it calculates path delays of the partial combinational circuits generating the errors. If they do not satisfy timing constraints, the system detects(More)
PDR (Pedestrian Dead Reckoning) is a very promising technology for indoor positioning. We held a technical challenge, entitled the UbiComp/ISWC 2015 PDR Challenge, consisting of the following three categories: a PDR algorithm category; a PDR Evaluation method category; and an exhibition. In this paper, we especially focus on several systems for the PDR(More)
