In Aplysia, three distinct phases of memory for sensitization can be dissociated based on their temporal and molecular features. A single training trial induces short-term memory (STM, lasting <30 min), whereas five trials delivered at 15-min intervals induces both intermediate-term memory (ITM, lasting >90 min) and long-term memory (LTM, lasting >24 h).(More)
We studied the effect of repeated and continuous nerve strain using a rat forelimb model to investigate whether an innocuous level of strain applied continuously affects nerve function when applied repeatedly. We used the rat medial cord of the brachial plexus and assessed the effects of strain by studying nerve histology (blood-nerve barrier), function(More)
The conjugation of horseradish peroxidase with wheat germ agglutinin was used to identify the effect on retrograde axonal transport of stretching the rat sciatic nerve indirectly by 10% and 20% femoral lengthening with a unilateral external fixator. To investigate the relationship between retrograde axonal transport and blood flow in the stretched nerve,(More)
