Identified paracerebral feeding command interneurons (PCNs) in the brain of the mollusc Pleurobranchaea excite other identified PCNs by means of a chemical polysynaptic pathway whose efficacy is reduced by food avoidance training (conditionally paired food and electric shock). The purpose of the present study was to identify the neurons comprising this… (More)

Interferon Regulatory Factor (IRF) 6, a member of the IRF family, is essential for epidermal and orofacial embryonic development. Irf6 is strongly expressed in keratinocytes, in which it regulates epidermal proliferation, differentiation, and migration. A recent role for Irf6 in Toll-like receptor 2-dependent chemokine gene expression was also reported in… (More)
A series of 38 experiments were performed in five conscious goats at air temperatures of +20 degrees C or +30 degrees C to see whether a temperature dependence of spinal cord signal transmission affects the relationships between body temperature and metabolic rate (MR) or respiratory evaporative heat loss (REHL). Prior to the experiments the animals… (More)
