This investigation was undertaken to establish the gross and ultrastructural organization of the photoreceptors and retina in the Malayan tree shrew (Tupaia glis). Photographs of the fundus revealed no specialization or differentiation of a central foveal region. Histologic sections revealed a single row of relatively short and thick cones distributed(More)
The goals of this research were to develop a within-subject test of spatial working memory and performance for the rat in a T-maze, based on a delayed alternation, or "win-shift" foraging strategy. Using this model, specific aims were to compare the effects of: (1) age, (2) basal forebrain, medial septal, and amygdala lesions, (3) four vessel occlusion(More)
Young (4 to 7 years) and aged (18 to 28 years) rhesus monkeys were sacrificed and various neuromorphometric analyses performed to determine age differences in gross topography, cell population and patterns of cellular degeneration. Two brain regions implicated for their role in age-related cognitive disturbances, the hippocampus and the gyri bordering the(More)
A phosphorylated, approximately 110 kDa laminin-binding protein (110 kDa LBP) from mouse brain has been previously identified. This protein recognizes a neurite-outgrowth promoting 19-amino acid synthetic peptide (PA 22-2) derived from the laminin A chain. In the present study, an antibody against the 110 kDa LBP was used to localize immunoreactivity in the(More)
