In order to test physiologically for cerebrotectal connections in a fish, averaged evoked potentials and unit responses were recorded from the optic tectum following electrical stimulation applied to the telencephalon in the siluroid teleost Ictalurus nebulosus. A single shock applied to the area dorsalis centralis (Dc) of the telencephalon, and only to(More)
Sensory representation in the catfish cerebellum was studied with physiological stimuli, with electric shocks applied to peripheral nerves and with electric shocks to central structures of the brain. Evoked field potentials and unit responses were recorded in different places in the cerebellum. In the catfish, different sensory modalities are represented by(More)
Amelotin (AMTN) is an ameloblast-secreted protein that belongs to the secretory calcium-binding phosphoprotein family, which also includes the enamel matrix proteins amelogenin, ameloblastin and enamelin. Although AMTN is supposed to play an important role in enamel formation, data were long limited to the rodents, in which it is expressed during the(More)
The neurohypophysial hormones, arginine vasotocin and isotocin, regulate both hydromineral balance and social behaviors in fish. In the amphibious mudskipper, Periophthalmus modestus, we previously found arginine-vasotocin-specific regulation of aggressive behavior, including migration of the submissive subordinate into water. This migration also implies(More)
BACKGROUND Unintentional weight loss is a diagnostic dilemma with diverse diagnostic possibilities for physicians. OBJECTIVES Our study focused on the evaluation of differences in diagnostic approach between family physicians and physicians in other specialties. METHODS Outpatients who visited National Taiwan University Hospital from January 1996 to(More)
The responses of cerebellar units following electrical stimulation applied to the area dorsalis centralis (Dc) of the telencephalon were studied in the siluroid teleost Ictalurus nebulosus. Two kinds of units are distinguished on physiological criteria, identified as Purkinje and eurydendroid cells (the efferent neurons of the cerebellum in teleosts(More)

In the siluroid teleost Ictalurus nebulosus, averaged evoked potentials and unit responses were recorded from various parts of the cerebellum following electrical stimulation applied to the telencephalon. Responses are most readily evoked in the cerebellum when area dorsalis pars centralis (Dc), a group of scattered large cells in the middle of the(More)
Extracellular spikes from Purkinje and eurydendroid cells as well as evoked field potentials were recorded from the cerebellum in a catfish following trains of 50-100 stimuli at 2-10 Hz delivered to the area dorsalis centralis (Dc) of the telencephalon. Forty out of 48 Purkinje cells tested showed some response, either an increase or a decrease in the level(More)
