These experiments address the hypothesis that the trajectory of a forelimb in decerebrate ambulating ferrets can be conditioned to avoid an obstacle encountered during the locomotor cycle. The perturbation was produced by interjecting a bar into the trajectory of the forelimb during swing phase. Over 5-15 steps the flexion of the elbow progressively(More)
1. These experiments were performed to test the hypothesis that climbing fiber inputs to sagittally aligned Purkinje cells located in a single folium are activated synchronously in response to a perturbation of the step cycle that interrupts the trajectory of the ipsilateral forelimb. 2. The experiments were performed in acutely decerebrate ferrets capable(More)
These experiments were performed to examine the relationship between the simple and complex spike responses of 3-5 simultaneously recorded Purkinje cells during the acquisition, performance and extinction of a conditioned forelimb movement in decerebrate, unanesthetized ferrets. The data demonstrate parallel, correlated changes in simple and complex spike(More)
Experiments were performed in ambulating decerebrate ferrets to examine the activity of up to 6 simultaneously recorded Purkinje cells oriented sagittally during unperturbed and perturbed locomotion using a new analytical technique, the real-time postsynaptic response (RTPR), which permits a trial-by-trial assessment of the action of the recorded neurons on(More)
1. The purpose of these experiments is to test the hypothesis that the synchronous activation of sagittally aligned Purkinje cells by a physiologically relevant stimulus is associated with an increase in the simple spike responses of the same neurons. 2. This hypothesis was tested using a perturbed locomotion paradigm in decerebrate locomoting ferrets. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of puerarin (Pue) on nitric oxide (NO) produced by neonatal rat cardiomyocytes during hypoxia/reoxygenation injury. METHOD NO contents in the culture supernatants sampled from different groups (control, model, and therapeutic groups with 1, 0.1, 0.01 g.L-1 Pue) at different time were assayed with nitrate reductase(More)
