Several lines of evidence have shown that stimulation of the lateral hypothalamus (LH) can induce antinociception. It has been indicated that hypothalamic orexinergic neurons send projections throughout the dopamine mesolimbic pathway. Functional interaction between the LH and the main area of the mesolimbic pathway such as the ventral tegmental area (VTA)(More)
It was established that stimulation of the lateral hypothalamus (LH) can induce antinociception. Previous studies showed a role for the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and nucleus accumbens (NAc) in antinociception induced by LH stimulation through the orexinergic system. In this study, we tried to assess the involvement of dopamine D1-like receptors within(More)
Evidence from animal models suggests a role for orexinergic system in reward processing and drug addiction. The lateral hypothalamus (LH) orexin neurons send projections to the dorsal hippocampus (CA1 region) which plays a pivotal role in reward processes. Moreover, it has been shown that orexin containing terminals and orexin receptors are distributed in(More)
An accurate method for feature extraction based on FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) implementation is proposed in this paper. The specific application is offline Farsi handwritten digit recognition. The classification is based on a simple two layer MLP (Multi Layer Perceptron). This method of feature extraction is appropriate for FPGA implementation as(More)
A new method for feature extraction based on FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) implementation is proposed in this paper. The specific application is offline Farsi handwritten digit recognition.

Methamphetamine (METH) is a psychostimulant drug with significant abuse potential and neurotoxic effects. A high percentage of users relapse to use after detoxification and no effective medication has been developed for treatment of METH addiction. Developing evidences indicated the role of glial cells in drugs abused related phenomena. However, little is(More)
Traumatic injury represents the most common cause of death in ages 1 to 44 years and asignificant proportion of patients treated in hospital emergency wards each year. Unfortunately, for patients who survive their injuries, survival is not equal to complete recovery. Many traumatic injuries are difficult to treat with conventional therapy and result in(More)
An accurate Farsi Handwritten digit recognition system based on FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) implementation is proposed in this paper. For obtain high accuracy, we used a combined method for feature extraction. This method of feature extraction is appropriate for FPGA implementation as it can be implemented only with add and subtract operations.(More)
Orexinergic projections originating from the lateral hypothalamus (LH) have an important role in the acquisition of the LH-stimulation conditioned place preference (CPP). Among the brain areas associated with reward processing, LH orexinergic neurons send projections to the dentate gyrus (DG) region of the hippocampus, and it has been shown that orexin(More)
Introduction: Stimulation or inactivation of the lateral hypothalamus (LH) produces antinociception. Studies showed a role for the ventral tegmental area (VTA) in the antinociception induced by LH chemical stimulation through the orexinergic receptors. In this study, we assessed the role of intra-VTA dopamine D1 and D2 receptors in antinociceptive effects(More)
