Following sciatic nerve transection, the expression of sodium channel III (alpha-III) transcripts increases and SNS (alpha-SNS) transcripts decreases in small (< 25 microns diameter) dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons, which may reflect an interruption of retrograde transport of peripherally derived factor(s) involved in the regulation of these channels.

The distributions of serotonin- (5HT-), substance P- (SP-), small cardioactive peptideb- (SCPb-), and histamine- (HA-) like immunoreactivities were examined in the adult lobster supraesophageal ganglion. Vibratome sections were labeled using avidin-biotin-peroxidase immunocytochemical methods. The localization patterns for each substance were assessed in 21(More)
Olfactory glomeruli are columnar and radially arranged at the periphery of the primary chemosensory areas, the olfactory lobes (OLs), in the American lobster Homarus americanus. The number of olfactory glomeruli reaches nearly 100/lobe in midembryonic life, increases rapidly during larval life, and stabilizes at about 200 in juvenile and adult lobsters. The(More)
Available online xxxx a b s t r a c t In GaN high-electron-mobility transistors, electrical degradation due to high-voltage stress is characterized by a critical voltage at which irreversible degradation starts to take place. Separately, cross-sectional TEM analysis has revealed significant crystallographic damage for severely degraded devices. Furthermore(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the current method of using computerized tomographic (CT) scans to screen for ventricular shunt failure in children who have hydrocephalus. DESIGN Retrospective review of 112 randomly selected charts. PATIENTS Children diagnosed with infantile hydrocephalus secondary to meningomyelocele, who were treated at the Andrew J. Kirch(More)
