In addition to the well-characterized direct and indirect projection neurons there are four major interneuron types in the striatum. Three contain GABA and either parvalbumin, calretinin or NOS/NPY/somatostatin. The fourth is cholinergic. It might be assumed that dissociated cell cultures of striatum (typically from embryonic day E18.5 in rat and E14.5 for(More)
Dissociated neuronal cultures of various brain regions are commonly used to study physiological and pathophysiological processes in vitro. The data derived from these studies are often viewed to have relevance to processes taking place in the mature brain. However, due to the practical challenges associated with lengthy neuronal culture, neurons are often(More)
Background. Parenteral nutrition (PN) is an effective method of nourishing the neonate who is unable to receive full enteral feeds. Cholestasis can be a complication of PN and can lead to severe liver damage. Aim. We describe our patient population and determine risk factors for developing PN cholestasis. Methods. Retrospective chart review of newborns(More)
