The physiological sequelae of undernutrition were investigated in rats that were undernourished from day 1-21 and subsequently free-fed to 75 days of age. Population responses were recorded in the corticospinal tract following surface stimulation of the motor cortex, which activates corticospinal cells directly, and also indirectly via cortical synapses.(More)
This study aims to address if phosphorylation of the transcription factor c-Jun is associated with lesion-induced death of spinal motoneurons, and if this cellular response is modulated by glial-cell-line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF). We found that after both distal axotomy and root avulsion, spinal motoneurons in neonatal rats expressed(More)
The rat spinal cord reveals a complex pattern of zinc-enriched (ZEN) boutons. As a result of in vivo exposure to selenide ions, nanosized clusters of zinc selenide are created in places where zinc ions are present, including the zinc-containing synaptic vesicles of ZEN boutons. The clusters can be silver enhanced by autometallographic (AMG) development. A(More)
