Fast rhythmic bursting pyramidal neuron or chattering neuron is a promising candidate for the pacemaker of coherent gamma-band (25-70 Hz) cortical oscillation. It, however, still remains to be clarified how the neuron generates such high-frequency bursts. Here, we demonstrate in a single-compartment model neuron that the fast rhythmic bursts (FRBs) can be(More)
Gaps 10 mm wide in the sciatic nerves of 64 rats were bridged by bioartificial nerve grafts consisting of a silicone tube containing seven longitudinally placed filaments made of non-absorbable, (polyamide [Ethilon]) or absorbable, material (polydioxanone [PDS], polyglactin [Vicryl], and catgut). The purpose was to study the organisation of axonal growth(More)
In the rat sciatic nerve, a gap of around 10 mm in nerve continuity seems to be the maximal distance which can be successfully repaired by silicone tubes. In this study we tested if a new artificial nerve graft, composed of eight polyamide filaments (diameter 250 microns) placed inside silicone tubes (1.8 mm inner diameter), could be used to bridge an(More)
Gaps, 10 mm wide, in rat sciatic nerves were bridged by bioartificial nerve grafts consisting of a silicone tube containing seven longitudinally placed synthetic filaments, which were expected to serve as a scaffold for axonal growth. The filaments were made of non-resorbable material (polyamide [Ethilon®]) or resorbable material (polydioxanon [PDS®],(More)
