Nitric oxide (NO) may subserve different functions in different central neurons subjected to axotomy. The difference may depend on whether the neurons basally express neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS), a biosynthetic enzyme of NO. This is supported by our previous finding that suggests the differential role of NO in neurons of nucleus dorsalis (ND) and(More)
Susac syndrome (SS) is a clinical triad of hearing loss, retinal artery occlusion and encephalopathy. The typical MR imaging findings of multiple focal lesions in the corpus callosum and subcortical white matter can be easily misdiagnosed as multiple sclerosis. On diffusion-weighted (DW) MR imaging, new lesions were hyperintense, with reduced apparent(More)
The behavioral effects of augmenting dopamine D1 receptor expression in the brain were investigated in mice incorporating additional copies of the mouse D1 receptor gene. Two transgenic lines showed increases in brain D1 receptor binding sites, which were greatest in extrastriatal regions. The full D1 agonist SKF 81297, when administered systemically to(More)
BACKGROUND Intravenous lipid emulsions have been introduced for the management of patients with Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity (LAST). These emulsions have been stated as a first-line treatment in the guidelines of several international anesthesia organizations. Nevertheless, the adoption of lipid rescue therapy by Chinese practitioners remains unknown.(More)
