Adult motor neurons, like their immature antecedents, express the mRNA for the signaling receptor for brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and for neurotrophin-4/5 (NT-4/5). However, while both BDNF and NT-4/5 support the survival of axotomized developing spinal motor neurons in vitro or in vivo, it is not known whether these factors continue to(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of neuromuscular blockade on energy expenditure in severely head-injured patients; to determine the effects of body temperature, nutrition support, and morphine use on metabolic rate; and to compare measured energy expenditure with values from predictive equations. METHODS Energy expenditure(More)
