A long-term, quantitative analysis was conducted on the gametogenesis of autotriploid rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) to quantify their degree of germline development and reproductive potential. Triploid and diploid (control) trout siblings were raised separately under identical conditions and sampled randomly for histological analysis. Triploid males(More)
Sex determination in the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, is primarily genetic, with XX females and XY males. A candidate sex-determining region in the terminal region of the largest chromosome pair has been identified by analysis of meiotic chromosomes. This region shows an inhibition of pairing and synapsis in the XY genotype, but not in XX or YY(More)
The pattern of chromosomal synapsis after treatment with 17 alpha-methyltestosterone (MT), a testosterone analogue routinely used for the reversal of phenotypic sex in aquaculture, was investigated using the Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) as a model teleost species. Progeny-tested, monosex diploid (2n = 44) individuals were orally administered with(More)
Reaching and grasping are two of the most affected functions after stroke. Hybrid rehabilitation systems combining Functional Electrical Stimulation with Robotic devices have been proposed in the literature to improve rehabilitation outcomes. In this work, we present the combined use of a hybrid robotic system with an EEG-based Brain-Machine Interface to(More)
