The diffusible intercellular messenger nitric oxide may have a modulatory role in the thalamus and this action may be mediated via activation of soluble guanylate cyclase. In order to investigate this possibility, we applied the cyclic-GMP analogue 8-Bromo-cyclic-GMP (8-Br-cGMP) onto neurones in the ventrobasal and lateral geniculate nuclei of the thalamus(More)
Nitric oxide has been identified as having a role in synaptic transmission in the central nervous system. In the ventrobasal complex of the thalamus (VB), the precursor of nitric oxide synthesis, L-arginine, causes enhancement of excitatory amino acid responses and somatosensory transmission. In this study, the nitric oxide donors sodium nitroprusside,(More)
HABITAT MAPPING Habitat maps were ground-truthed using a handheld GPS enabled PC with Arc Pad software (accuracy ± 4m) using the habitat categories (Table S5). Hedgerows and tree lines were mapped using Google maps aerial images (Google 2013) and area was calculated by multiplying the length by a mean width of 1.93 m (data from 14 hedges in Berkshire and(More)
