The olfactory system is an excellent system in which to study issues related to potential functional recovery after a debilitating brain injury. The olfactory system is well-characterized, easily accessible and there are a vast number of studies available from a variety of perspectives. The experimental aim of this research is to examine the anatomical(More)
Current doctrine states that phosphorus is incorporated into cells in the pentavalent(V) oxidation state as orthophosphate. However, recent studies show that microorganisms contain enzymes used to metabolize reduced forms of phosphorous, including phosphite(III) and hypophosphite(I), which suggests that there is a natural source for these chemical species.(More)
Previous experiments in this laboratory have shown that transplants of a fetal olfactory bulb into a neonatal rat are viable and that they establish connections with the olfactory peduncle and olfactory cortex. The focus of this experiment was to investigate the anatomical correlates of any behavioral recovery seen in rats that had one olfactory bulb(More)
Previous studies have shown recovery of olfactory ability along with reconnectivity of olfactory nerve (ON) following both olfactory bulb (OB) lesions and OB transplants (TX) when performed in newborn rats. The purpose of the present study is to correlate functional recovery with patterns of anatomical reconnectivity in older, postnatal (PN) 13-day-old rats(More)
Fluid percussion injury (FPI) causes memory deficits, loss of hippocampal neurons, and basal forebrain cholinergic immunoreactivity in rats. Basal forebrain septohippocampal projections terminate in specific hippocampal regions. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of FPI on the septohippocampal pathway (SHP). Halothane-anesthetized rats(More)
The papers in this Special Issue of Educational Technology and Society are extensions of presentations given at the 1999 Texas Distance Learning Association (TxDLA) Annual Conference held April 5-8, 1999, in Waco, Texas, U.S.A. TxDLA is pleased that our collaboration with IFETS has afforded the opportunity to present these papers for publication in their(More)
We are using wheat germ agglutinin-conjugated horseradish peroxidase (WHRP) to study reconnectivity in the transplanted (TX) olfactory bulb (OB) in Sprague-Dawley rats. Tritium-labeled OBs from fetal rat donors of Embryonic Days 14-15 were immediately grafted into neonatal rats in the site from which the host OB had been removed. Following survival times of(More)
