The goal of this study was to investigate changes in glutamatergic synapses in the striatum of rats at two different time-points following a unilateral injection of 6-hydroxydopamine into the medial forebrain bundle. One month following this lesion of the nigrostriatal pathway, there was an increase (70%) in the mean percentage of asymmetrical synapses(More)
The primary objective of the preclinical dental anatomy course in the predoctoral dental curriculum is to introduce students to cognitive and psychomotor skills related to the morphology and spatial and functional relationships of human dentition. Traditionally, didactic content for the subject is found in textbooks and course manuals and summarized by the(More)
Treatment with haloperidol, a dopamine receptor D-2 antagonist, for one month resulted in an increase in the mean percentage of asymmetric synapses containing a discontinuous, or perforated, postsynaptic density (PSD) [Meshul et al. (1994) Brain Res., 648:181-195] and a change in the density of striatal glutamate immunoreactivity within those presynaptic(More)
RATIONALE Withdrawal seizure-prone and withdrawal seizure-resistant mice were selectively bred to exhibit differences in handling-induced convulsion severity during ethanol withdrawal. The glutamatergic system has been implicated in seizure activity as well as ethanol withdrawal symptoms. OBJECTIVE This study assessed L-[3H]glutamate uptake into(More)
BACKGROUND Withdrawal seizure-prone (WSP) and withdrawal seizure-resistant (WSR) mice were bred in replicate (i.e., WSP-1 and WSP-2) to exhibit differences in handling-induced convulsion severity during ethanol withdrawal. METHODS We examined the role of the glutamatergic system in susceptibility to ethanol-withdrawal convulsions in naive mice by(More)
The difficulty nursing students experience in making the transition from the university to clinical context is attributed to the gap between theory and practice, and education and service. Collaboration between academics and clinicians in the provision of undergraduate education is considered to be a strategy for overcoming these problems. A project team(More)
Withdrawal Seizure Prone (WSP) and Withdrawal Seizure Resistant (WSR) mice have been selectively bred for differential ethanol withdrawal handling-induced convulsions (HICs). In addition, it has been observed that WSP mice exhibit drug-naive HICs. This latter finding suggests that WSP and WSR mice differ in their susceptibility to HICs. Alterations in the(More)
