1. Employing an optical method for multiple-site simultaneous recording of electrical activity, we have determined the conduction velocity in cervical vagus nerve bundles isolated from 5- to 21-day-old chick embryos, and investigated its developmental changes. 2. The preparations were stained with a voltage-sensitive merocyanine-rhodanine dye (NK2761), and(More)
To investigate the possibility that nerve growth factor (NGF) may play some role in the development of kindling, rabbit anti-NGF serum was injected into the third ventricle on the first 3 days of daily electrical stimulation of the basolateral amygdala. The number of stimulations required to reach full amygdaloid kindling increased significantly in the rat(More)
Mutations in p150glued cause hereditary motor neuropathy with vocal cord paralysis (HMN7B) and Perry syndrome (PS). Here we show that both overexpression of p150glued mutants and knockdown of endogenous p150glued induce apoptosis. Overexpression of a p150glued plasmid containing either a HMN7B or PS mutation resulted in cytoplasmic p150glued-positive(More)
Neurotropin (NTP)®, a non-protein extract isolated from the inflamed skin of rabbits inoculated with vaccinia virus, is used clinically for the treatment of neuropathic pain. Moreover, NTP may activate the descending pain inhibitory system. Depression-like behavior is often complicated by chronic pain. However, little is known about NTP-mediated prevention(More)
Recent studies have demonstrated that magnetic stimulation (MS) can induce cellular responses such as Ca2+ influx into the cultured neurons and glia, leading to increased intracellular phosphorylation. We have demonstrated previously that MS reduces rat neuropathic pain associated with the prevention of neuronal degeneration. Thus, we aimed to elucidate the(More)
