Our previous study shows that intracerebroventricularly (i.c.v.) injected norepinephrine (NE) had different effects on the discharge of different firing patterns of magnocellular neurons in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN). In the present study we further classified antidromically identified magnocellular neurons into two groups: vasopressin (VP) and(More)
The effects of intracerebralventricular (icv) injection of nitric oxide (NO) donor and nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor on the spontaneous discharge of magnocellular neurons of paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of hypothalamus were investigated in urethane anaesthetized adult SD rats by using microelectrode extracellularly recording method. The results(More)
The present study investigated the behavioral training-induced c-Fos expression in the nucleus basalis of Meynert (nbM) in differently aged rats. This study demonstrated that the c-Fos expression in nbM was significantly increased and the peak occurred at 2 h after dark-avoidance training. Although the increase of c-Fos expression was also observed after(More)
AIM To investigate the primary electrophysiological and pharmacological properties of the nucleus basalis magnocellularis (nbM) neurons. METHODS Single unit extracellular recordings from the nbM neurons were obtained with glass micropipettes in urethane-anesthetized rats. RESULTS Most nbM neurons responded to noxious but not innocuous mechanical,(More)
The present study investigated the effects of peripheral noxious stimuli on the spontaneous activity of the nucleus basalis magnocellularis (nbM) neurons in young, adult and old rats. Single unit extracellular recordings from the nbM neurons were obtained with glass micropipettes in urethane-anesthetized rats. A total of 104 units were antidromically(More)
The inhibitory effects of dopamine (DA) applied spinally on the wide dynamic range (WDR) neurons of dorsal horn in rats were studied with extracellular recording technique. 54 WDR units were tested from 43 rats. With a dosage of DA from 0.26 x 10(-6) to 1.58 x 10(-6) mol/kg, the inhibitory effect of the neurotransmitter on the responses of dorsal horn(More)
We propose a simple two-dimensional acoustic crystal to realize topologically protected edge states for acoustic waves. The acoustic crystal is composed of a triangular array of core-shell cylinders embedded in a water host. By utilizing the point group symmetry of two doubly degenerate eigenstates at the Γ point, we can construct pseudo-time-reversal(More)
OsmiR1861k was predicted to be inducible by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) in resistant rice leaves by using a computational approach based on transcription data. The existence of many known pathogen-related cis-elements in the promoter region of OsmiR1861k further supported the prediction. A stem-loop real-time RT-PCR analysis validated that(More)
The biochemical changes occurring during cheese ripening are directly and indirectly dependent on the microbial associations of starter cultures. Freeze-dried Tibetan kefir coculture was used as a starter culture in the Camembert-type cheese production for the first time. Therefore, it's necessary to elucidate the stability, organization and identification(More)
The experimental studies on static tensile properties of vanadium alloy V-5Cr-5Ti were carried out at strain rates from 10<sup>-5</sup>s<sup>-1</sup> to 10<sup>-1</sup>s<sup>-1</sup> at room temperature. The stress-strain curves, ultimate tensile strength and tensile failure strains of V-5Cr-5Ti for various strain rates were obtained experimentally. From(More)
