Mesopontine cholinergic neurons activate dopamine neurons important for reward-seeking and locomotor activity. The present studies tested whether cholinergic receptor blockade in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) altered locomotion induced by scopolamine (3 mg/kg i.p.) or by oxotremorine-M (0.1 microg bilaterally in the VTA). It was predicted that(More)
Toll-like receptor (TLR)-dependent pathways control the production of IFNalphabeta, a key cytokine in innate immune control of viruses including mouse cytomegalovirus (MCMV). The lymphotoxin (LT) alphabeta-LTbeta receptor signaling pathway is also critical for defense against MCMV and thought to aid in the IFNbeta response. We find that upon MCMV infection,(More)

Full-face dermabrasion provided an ideal opportunity to document the effects of dressings on wound healing management. Following the procedure, the abraded face was divided in half. One side was treated with the standard polyethylene oxide gel wound dressings. The other side was treated with a polyethylene oxide gel dressing saturated with stabilized aloe(More)
This paper analyzes the efforts of DISSECT (DIScover SciEnce through Computational Thinking) to introduce computer science theories into K-12 Curricula. This is accomplished by teaching computational thinking (CT) problem solving techniques in existing STEM+C courses in select middle and high school classrooms in Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA. Data collected(More)
BACKGROUND The use of autologous fat has been advocated for tissue augmentation for over a century. However, this technique remains controversial and many investigators have made suggestions to increase its potential. OBJECTIVES To develop a less traumatic method to collect, purify, and reinject fat to obtain more dramatic augmentations for the cosmetic(More)
The rarest and least understood of the muscarinic receptors is the M5 subtype. Recombinant methods were used to create mutant mice with a deletion in the third intracellular loop of the M5 receptor gene. Salivation induced by the nonselective muscarinic agonist pilocarpine (1 mg/kg s.c.) was reduced in homozygous mutants from 15 to 60 min after injection as(More)
BACKGROUND Many fillers have been used to augment the lips. One of these that has provided long-term satisfactory results is liquid silicone. OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the efficacy and safety of lip augmentation with liquid silicone. METHOD Following a discussion of the benefits and risks of the procedure and the benefits and risks of alternatives and(More)
