Neurotensin (NT) has been implicated in the central regulation of LH and PRL secretion in the rat. We investigated the importance of NT release to the neural events that trigger the preovulatory LH surge and coincident PRL surge, using as our animal model ovariectomized (OVX) rats treated with estrogen and progesterone to induce reliable and robust surges.(More)
The bifid mandibular condyle has been described as a condition of unknown aetiology and uncertain pathogenesis. Many see it as the product of accidental trauma or forceps delivery, with the two heads occurring one behind the other in the sagittal plane. In bioanthropological literature, "bifid condyle" often describes pitting in the sagittal plane, dividing(More)
Abstract Vasopressin-sensitive neurons in the region of the anterior hypothalamus are necessary for the mediation of flank marking behavior in the Golden hamster. The precise nature of the vasopressinergic innervation to the anterior hypothalamus is unknown. In this study we seek to examine the potential sources of this innervation by mapping and counting(More)
Sarcoidosis is an idiopathic, multisystem, granulomatous disease characterized microscopically by the presence of noncaseating granulomas and, in the majority of cases , supportive laboratory and clinical findings. The CNS is clinically involved in approximately 5% of cases [1], although autopsy findings suggest an overall involvement of closer to 15% [2].(More)
