Alterations in factors involved in the regeneration of the neuronal network in the hippocampus of rats with microsphere embolism (ME) were examined. Nine hundred microspheres (48 microm in diameter) were injected into the right hemisphere, and immunochemical and immunohistochemical studies on the hippocampus were performed on the seventh day thereafter.(More)
 The present study was undertaken to elucidate the pathological changes in learning and memory functions and in the metabolism of cortical cholinergic neurons following microsphere embolism in the rat. Microspheres (48 μm) were injected into the right internal carotid artery of rats. Learning and memory functions were measured 7 or more days after the(More)
Effects of naftidrofuryl oxalate (naftidrofuryl) on neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, and amino acid content of brain regions following microsphere-induced cerebral embolism were examined to elucidate its possible therapeutic effects on ischemic brain. Rats received 900 microspheres (48 μm in diameter) via the right internal carotid artery, followed by(More)
The present study was designed to induce massive accumulation of calcium in the myocardium and to evaluate the effect of calcium overload on myocardial contractile function and biochemical activity of cardiac subcellular membranes. Rats were treated with an oral administration of 500,000 units/kg of vitamin D3 for 3 consecutive days, and their hearts were(More)
