The cellular skeleton of the adult rat fimbria consists of regularly spaced interfascicular glial rows of considerable length, running in the longitudinal (axonal) axis of the tract. Each row consists of a series of repeated segments made up of a stretch of interfascicular oligodendrocytes lying in direct contact with each other, and separated from the(More)
The development of the rat fimbria over the first postnatal month is associated with an approximate doubling of the tract diameter, a large increase in the number of glial cells, and the transformation of the prenatal radial glial skeleton into the adult interfascicular glial rows of solitary astrocytes and contiguous myelinating oligodendrocytes.

This paper documents the development and evaluation of a novel tactile vision substitution system (TVSS) for the people with visual impairments. The system is composed of an electro-tactile display with 512 electrodes, the same number of optical sensors beneath each electrode, and a smartphone with a camera and an LCD. The smartphone acquires the(More)
BACKGROUND As the World Health Organization grading system for gastroenteropancreatic-neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) may not always correlate with tumor progression, it is imperative that other independent predictors of tumor progression be established. To identify such predictors, we conducted a retrospective histopathological study of hindgut NETs,(More)
BACKGROUND The enumeration of chemical graphs (molecular graphs) satisfying given constraints is one of the fundamental problems in chemoinformatics and bioinformatics because it leads to a variety of useful applications including structure determination and development of novel chemical compounds. RESULTS We consider the problem of enumerating chemical(More)
3,4-Methylenedioxy-N-methylcathinone (methylone) is a new psychoactive substance and the β-keto analog of 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine (MDMA). It is well established that MDMA metabolism produces bioactive metabolites. Here we tested the hypothesis that methylone metabolism in rats can form bioactive metabolites. First, we examined the(More)
