Postmitotic sympathetic neuronal survival is dependent upon nerve growth factor (NGF) provided by peripheral targets, and this dependency serves as a central tenet of the neurotrophic hypothesis. In some other systems, NGF has been shown to play an autocrine role, although the pervasiveness and significance of this phenomenon within the nervous system(More)
Authors study the neurological evolution of 50 cases of traumatic coma and recognize 5 misfunction levels corresponding to five steps of rostrocaudal deterioration. The level 1 (cortico-sub-cortical) is defined by the persistence of the mimic and flexion response to painful stimulation. The level 2 (diencephalic) is characterized by stereotypic responses to(More)
