Streptomycin was injected subcutaneously into guinea pigs (n = 12) with unilateral endolymphatic hydrops. In the unoperated ears, sensory cells were degenerated at the basal ends of all cochleas and to varying extents in the vestibular sense organs. Hydropic ears, in contrast, showed greater ototoxicity in the cochlear and saccular sensory cells, while the(More)
Early changes in the vestibular sense organs resulting from the application of a streptomycin sulfate soaked Gelfoam pledget on the fenestra of the lateral semicircular canal were studied by transmission and scanning electron microscopy. Three days after the application, lesions were present in the central part of the lateral crista. The type I sensory(More)
The aim of this study was to clarify the morphological characteristics of the communicating branch between the spinal accessory nerve and the anterior root of the first cervical nerve (McKenzie branch), a structure severed during intradural selective rhizotomy for treatment of spasmodic torticollis. The right and left sides of 50 upper cervical segments of(More)
Following a stroke there is a significant increase in the number and migration of progenitor cells (PCs) to the infarct, and positive correlations between neurogenesis and recovery. Loss-of-function studies have conflicting findings on whether the ablation of PCs impedes motor or cognitive function post-stroke. This thesis examines if neurogenesis per se is(More)
