Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H MRS) provides in vivo biochemical information on tissue metabolites. The purpose of this study was to investigate the serial metabolic changes of (1)H MRS in the cerebrum of ischemic dogs. An ischemic stroke was induced in five health laboratory beagle dogs by permanent middle cerebral artery occlusion using a(More)
Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is one of the most lethal types of stroke. Neuroimaging techniques, particularly MRI, have improved the diagnostic accuracy of ICH. The MRI characteristics of the evolving stages of ICH in humans-but not those in dogs-have been described. In this study, we document the temporal MRI characteristics in a canine model of(More)
Introduction Sexual arousal is a complex series of psycho-neuro-vascular events. There have been few clinical studies on the central control of male sexual arousal. Recently, a preliminary study was performed to identify brain areas activated in healthy males with visual sexual stimulation using PET. However, there is no clinical report to use fMRI in(More)
This article describes the integrated modeling approach for planning the size and the operation of constructed wetlands for maximizing retention of nonpoint source pollutant loads and reservoir water-quality improvement at a catchment scale. The experimental field-scale wetland systems (four sets, 0.88 ha each) have been in operation since 2002, where water(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and assess the correlation between the volume of the ischemic lesion and neurobehavioral status during the subacute stage of ischemic stroke. Ischemic stroke was induced in 6 healthy laboratory beagles through permanent occlusion of the middle cerebral artery(More)
Human brain activation was assessed in terms of eco-friendliness while viewing still photographs depicting rural and urban surrounding environments with the use of a functional magnetic resonance imaging technique. A total of 30 subjects who had both rural and urban life experiences participated in this study. In order to explore the common and differential(More)
