The nervus terminalis is a ganglionated vertebrate cranial nerve of unknown function that connects the brain and the peripheral nasal structures. To investigate its function, we have studied nervus terminalis ganglion morphology and physiology in the bonnethead shark (Sphyrna tiburo), where the nerve is particularly prominent. Immunocytochemistry for(More)
We examined the blood supply of the cat's visual cortex using alkaline phosphatase histochemistry to demonstrate the capillary endothelial cells. In the adult, layer 4 is marked by a band that is of obviously greater density, extends throughout areas 17 and 18, and ends abruptly at the 18/19 border. We quantified blood vessel density in area 17, observing a(More)
We investigated the effects of acetylcholine (ACh) and norepinephrine (NE) on activity in the nervus terminalis (NT) ganglion of the bonnethead shark (Sphyrna tiburo) using an in vitro preparation and whole nerve recordings. Spectral analysis indicated that ACh (10 and 100 microM) had a variable effect on the total spectral power of whole nerve activity but(More)
Tonic activity was recorded extracellularly in the nervus terminalis of the bonnethead shark. Cutting or cooling the nerve central to its ganglion eliminated these spikes, and was followed by an increase in multi-unit activity which appeared to arise from the ganglion. After cutting centrally, electrical stimulation of the distal stump of the nerve(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this project was to develop, deliver, and evaluate a brief evidenced-based education package to enhance physical health literacy in mental health nurses. DESIGN AND METHODS Pre- and post-test survey of knowledge of physical health in serious mental illness, satisfaction with the workshop, and applicability to practice. FINDINGS(More)
