This review summarized some articles on the effect of the septal area in acupuncture analgesia. The data showed that the pain threshold of animal was increased when septal area was stimulated by electro-acupuncture, and that electrical stimulation of septal area had a marked inhibitory effect on the pain discharges of cells in parafascicular nucleus of(More)
Distribution of nitric oxide synthase (NOS)-positive neurons of cingulate areas and its changes following bilateral common carotid artery occlusion were investigated with nicotinamide adenosine dinucleotide phosphate diaphoras (NADPH-d) reaction. Positively stained NOS-neurons were observed in the areas 24, 32, and 25 of the anterior cingulate cortex, and(More)
INTRODUCTION Biological evaluation of ([(125)I]4), a new single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) radioligand for imaging the serotonin transporter (SERT) which displayed improved in vivo kinetics for mapping SERT binding sites in the brain. METHODS In vitro binding studies of [(125)I]4 were performed with membrane homogenates of LLC-PK1 cells(More)
The afferent connections of septal nuclei from the brain areas relating to pain in the rat were studied with HRP, WGA-HRP and CB-HRP methods. Some brain areas relating to pain, for instance, locus coeruleus, raphe nuclei, periaqueductal gray, hypothalamus, lateral habenular nucleus, amygdaloid complex, hippocampus and cingulate cortex, project to medial(More)
The efferent projections of septal nuclei from the brain areas relating to pain in the rat were studied with WGA-HRP and HRP methods. The results are obtained as follows: The septal areas project widely to some brain areas relating to pain, for instance, locus coeruleus, raphe nuclei, periaqueductal gray, thalamus, hypothalamus, habenular, amygdaloid(More)
