The myenteric plexus is not only essential for gastrointestinal functions, but it is also a very interesting model for the study of neuronal circuits and neuron-glial interrelationships and may be a valuable source of donor tissue, for grafting into different regions of the central nervous system. For both grafting and culture procedures it is a great(More)
The concentrations and turnover rates of norepinephrine (NE), dopamine (DA) and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) were measured in discrete brain areas of diestrous (D), proestrous (P), ovariectomized (OVX) and ovariectomized rats treated with estradiol-benzoate (EB) 12 or 24 h before decapitation. The turnover of NE in the medial preoptic area (MPO)(More)
Sensors and multi-sensor arrays are the basis of new technologies for the non-label monitoring of cell activity. In this paper we show that choroid plexus cells can be cultured on silicon chips and that sensors register in real time changes in their activity, constituting an interesting experimental paradigm for cell biology and medical research.
