We have identified 13 types of DA retinal pathologies, and 15 visual functions. The pathologies were arranged in this review on a net grid, where one axis was "age" (i.e., from(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Skin exposure to sulfur mustard (HD) results in erythema, edema and severe injury, which take long time to heal and might impose a heavy burden on the health system. Despite many years of research, there is no treatment that prevents the development of the cytotoxic effects of HD causing acute and prolonged damage to the skin. Therefore,(More)
Apolipoprotein E (apoE)-deficient and control mice were treated chronically with either the acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor ENA713, or the M1 muscarinic agonist AF150(S). Both treatments reversed the spatial working memory impairment of apoE-deficient mice but they differed in their effects on the levels of brain AChE activity. AF150(S) enhanced the(More)
