In this study, we surveyed central neurons that might be activated after peripheral administration of a gut-brain peptide ghrelin, by examining neurons expressing c-Fos protein. First, we examined the relationship between the dose of ghrelin and the amount of gastric acid secreted. Ghrelin induced a significant increase in the amount of gastric acid(More)
Previously, we demonstrated that implanted dendritic cells (DCs) in the injured spinal cord of adult mice exert a neurotrophic effect, resulting in the activation of endogenous neural stem/progenitor cells (NSPCs) and neurogenesis. Granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF), which is an essential cytokine for the generation of DCs from(More)
