Neural cell adhesion molecules in activity-dependent development and synaptic plasticity
Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) have a vital role in forming connections between neurons during embryonic development. Increasing evidence suggests that CAMs also participate in activity-dependentExpand

Effects of local administration of insulin-like growth factor-I on mandibular condylar growth in rats.
Endochondral bone formation observed at the mandibular condyle is regulated by various growth factors including insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I). In this paper, we describe a method for the localExpand

Prevention of status epilepticus-induced brain edema and neuronal cell loss by repeated treatment with high-dose levetiracetam
The management of status epilepticus (SE) is important to prevent mortality and the development of post-SE symptomatic epilepsy. Acquired epilepsy after an initial brain insult by SE can beExpand

Cell adhesion molecule L1 guides cell migration in primary reaggregation cultures of mouse cerebellar cells
We demonstrate a new assay in vitro using reaggregated cerebellar neurons in order to test the role of the L1 molecule in migration events. Cells other than neurons were eliminated in these cultures.Expand

Pelvic Floor Disturbance After Childbirth: Vaginal Delivery Damages the Upper Levels of Sphincter Innervation
PURPOSE Vaginal delivery disturbs pelvic floor innervation, which has previously been studied as a single mechanism. The effects of childbirth on innervation at different levels of the anal sphincterExpand
