Although it is well established that hallucinogens act as 5-HT(2A) and 5-HT(2C) receptor agonists, little is known about the relative contributions of 5-HT(2A) and 5-HT(2C) receptors to the acute behavioral effects of these drugs. The behavioral pattern monitor was used to characterize the effects of the hallucinogen(More)
Cell adhesion molecule-like receptor-type protein tyrosine phosphatases have been shown to be important for neurite outgrowth and neural development in several animal models. We have previously reported that in leucocyte common antigen-related (LAR) phosphatase deficient (LAR-deltaP) mice the number and size of basal forebrain cholinergic neurons, and their(More)
The leukocyte common antigen-related (LAR) receptor, composed of an extracellular region with three immunoglobulin-like and eight fibronectin type III-like domains, and a cytoplasmic region containing two protein tyrosine phosphatase domains, is thought to play a role in axonal outgrowth and guidance during neural development. LAR mutant mice were generated(More)
We report a case of a newborn presenting with severe compression of the spinal cord due to a large, solitary mass extending from C4 to T2. Neurosurgical exploration revealed a large intradural, extramedullary cystic lesion, compressing the spinal cord. Slowly progressive respiratory failure due to severe myelopathy led to the death of the child 19 days(More)
