Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) have been used extensively in the neurophysiological assessment of spinal cord integrity. However, SEPs mainly reflect the function of the dorsal column. In an effort to find a reliable method of assessing the integrity of the motor tracts for experimental purposes, we studied cortically evoked motor action potentials(More)
In this study, effect of maternal labor and mode of delivery on polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) chemiluminescence and random and chemotactic motility was evaluated in healthy full-term neonates. PMN were obtained from cord blood of three groups of neonates: group I, 24 vaginally delivered neonates; group II, 22 neonates delivered by elective cesarean(More)
Random motility and chemotaxis of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) was evaluated after in vitro exposure to 0, 300, 600, and 900 ng/mL (0.84, 1.68, and 2.52 mumol/L) of indomethacin. PMN were obtained from cord blood of 22 preterm infants of less than 37 wk gestation. For comparison, PMN were obtained from cord blood of seven healthy full-term infants and(More)
This study was designed to explore the beneficial effects of environmental enrichment (EE) on white matter glial changes in a mouse model of chronic cerebral hypoperfusion induced by bilateral common carotid artery stenosis (BCAS). A total of 74 wild-type male C57BL/6J mice underwent BCAS or sham surgery. One week after surgery, the mice were randomly(More)
