BACKGROUND Electrospinning is a simple and effective method for fabricating micro- and nanofiber matrices. Electrospun fibre matrices have numerous advantages for use as tissue engineering scaffolds, such as high surface area-to-volume ratio, mass production capability and structural similarity to the natural extracellular matrix (ECM). Therefore,(More)
Dorsal root (DR) axons regenerate in the PNS but turn around or stop at the dorsal root entry zone (DREZ), the entrance into the CNS. Earlier studies that relied on conventional tracing techniques or postmortem analyses attributed the regeneration failure to growth inhibitors and lack of intrinsic growth potential. Here, we report the first in vivo imaging(More)
The aim of the current study was to assess the efficacy of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) over the supplementary motor area (SMA) of the cortex to children with Tourette's syndrome (TS), if rTMS over the SMA had positive effects on ameliorating tics. We designed a pilot open label 12 weeks cohort study to assess the efficacy of rTMS(More)
Transcription factor-based reprogramming can lead to the successful switching of cell fates. We have recently reported that mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) can be directly reprogrammed into induced neural stem cells (iNSCs) after the forced expression of Brn4, Sox2, Klf4, and Myc. Here, we tested whether iNSCs could be further reprogrammed into induced(More)
Three-dimensional (3D) scaffolds, which are bioactive and aid in neuronal guidance, are essential in the repair and regeneration of injured peripheral nerves. In this study, we used novel inorganic microfibres guided by phosphate glass (PG). PG fibres (PGfs) were aligned on compressed collagen that was rolled into a nerve conduit. In vitro tests confirmed(More)
BACKGROUND In the field of biomedical engineering, many studies have focused on the possible applications of graphene and related nanomaterials due to their potential for use as scaffolds, coating materials and delivery carriers. On the other hand, electrospun nanofiber matrices composed of diverse biocompatible polymers have attracted tremendous attention(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate swallowing laterality in hemiplegic patients with stroke and recovery of dysphagia according to the laterality. METHOD The sample was comprised of 46 dysphagic patients with hemiplegia after their first stroke. The sample's videofluoroscopic swallowing study (VFSS) was reviewed. Swallowing laterality was determined by the(More)
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is one of the major disabilities dealt with in clinical rehabilitation settings and is multifactorial in that the patients suffer from motor and sensory impairments as well as many other complications throughout their lifetimes. Many clinical trials have been documented during the last two decades to restore damaged spinal cords.(More)
The aims of this study were to evaluate the evolution of the neurogenic bladder after spinal cord contusion and to correlate changes in bladder function with locomotor function and levels of neurotrophic factors. The MASCIS impactor was used to cause a mild contusion injury of the lower thoracic spinal cord of Sprague-Dawley rats. Rats were divided into(More)
STUDY DESIGN This study was conducted to investigate the electromyographic changes and their pathophysiologic background in the animal model of nucleus pulposus-induced radiculopathy. OBJECTIVES To observe the abnormal spontaneous activities in the electromyography (EMG) of rats with nucleus pulposus-induced radiculopathy and assess the role of nitric(More)
