Status Epilepticus Causes Necrotic Damage in the Mediodorsal Nucleus of the Thalamus in Immature Rats
Status epilepticus (StE) in immature rats causes long-term functional impairment. Whether this is associated with structural alterations remains controversial. The present study was designed to testExpand

Fast and slow muscles of the chick after nerve cross‐union
1. The multiply innervated anterior latissimus dorsi (ALD) and the focally innervated posterior latissimus dorsi (PLD) muscles of the chick were investigated 2‐18 months after nerve cross‐union.

Degenerative changes in skeletal muscles of piglets with congenital myofibrillar hypoplasia.
Summary In a hybrid stock in which 8% of newborn piglets were affected by splayleg, myofibrillar hypoplasia and myofibrillar degeneration were found in skeletal muscles of both splaylegged andExpand

Ultrastructural study of experimental muscle degeneration and regeneration in the adult rat
SummaryMethyl-bupivacaine is a local anaesthetic with a selective myotoxic action. A single subcutaneous injection of the drug into the hind leg of adult rats produces a uniform, complete andExpand

Innervation by nerve implants of "fast" and "slow" skeletal muscles of the rat.
The time course of innervation by nerve implants of the fast contracting flexor digitorum longus and the slow contracting soleus muscles were studied by the recorcling of isometric twitch tensions inExpand

Regulation of myosin expression in developing and regenerating extrafusal and intrafusal muscle fibers with special emphasis on the role of thyroid hormones.
Expression of the muscle phenotype is the result of interaction between intrinsic and extrinsic factors, the latter including innervation, mechanical influences and hormonal signals. This minireviewExpand

Influence of thyroid status on the differentiation of slow and fast muscle phenotypes.
Muscle phenotype is determined by combined effects of intrinsic genetic and extrinsic factors like innervation, hormonal levels and mechanical factors or muscle activity. We have been studying theExpand

Grafts of Pacinian corpuscles reinnervated by dorsal root axons
In adult rats, a piece of the crural interosseous nerve with several Pacinian corpuscles attached was removed from the crural region, autotransplanted onto the surface of the lumbar spinal cord andExpand

Motor end-plates in regenerating rat skeletal muscle exposed to botulinum toxin
Botulinum toxin type A, when applied to the extensor digitorum longus muscle of rats, reduces spontaneous and evoked transmitter release to a few per cent of the normal level. The toxin, however,Expand
