Biexponential diffusion attenuation in various states of brain tissue: Implications for diffusion‐weighted imaging
Diffusion‐weighted single voxel experiments conducted at b‐values up to 1 × 104 smm−2 yielded biexponential signal attenuation curves for both normal and ischemic brain. The relative fractions of theExpand

1H MR spectroscopy of the brain: absolute quantification of metabolites.
Hydrogen 1 (1H) magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy enables noninvasive in vivo quantification of metabolite concentrations in the brain. Currently, metabolite concentrations are most oftenExpand

Characterization of the normal cardiac myofiber field in goat measured with MR-diffusion tensor imaging.
Cardiac myofiber orientation is a crucial determinant of the distribution of myocardial wall stress. Myofiber orientation is commonly quantified by helix and transverse angles. Accuracy of reportedExpand

Neuroprotection by the Endogenous Cannabinoid Anandamide and Arvanil against In Vivo Excitotoxicity in the Rat: Role of Vanilloid Receptors and Lipoxygenases
Type 1 vanilloid receptors (VR1) have been identified recently in the brain, in which they serve as yet primarily undetermined purposes. The endocannabinoid anandamide (AEA) and some of its oxidativeExpand

In vivo 31P-NMR diffusion spectroscopy of ATP and phosphocreatine in rat skeletal muscle
The aim of this study was to measure the diffusion of ATP and phosphocreatine (PCr) in intact rat skeletal muscle, using (31)P-NMR. The acquisition of the diffusion-sensitized spectra was optimizedExpand

Exogenous Anandamide Protects Rat Brain against Acute Neuronal Injury In Vivo
The endocannabinoid anandamide [N-arachidonoylethanolamine (AEA)] is thought to function as an endogenous protective factor of the brain against acute neuronal damage. However, this has never beenExpand

Intramyocellular lipid content is increased after exercise in nonexercising human skeletal muscle.
Intramyocellular lipid (IMCL) content has been reported to decrease after prolonged submaximal exercise in active muscle and, therefore, seems to form an important local substrate source. BecauseExpand

The increase in intramyocellular lipid content is a very early response to training.
The present study investigated the influences of a 2-wk training program on intramyocellular lipid (IMCL) content, IMCL decrease during exercise, fat oxidation, and insulin sensitivity. NineExpand
