Unilateral lesion of the nigrostriatal pathway induces an increase of neuronal firing of the midbrain raphe nuclei 5-HT neurons and a decrease of their response to 5-HT1A receptor stimulation in the
Several studies have shown that the 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin, 5-HT) system is severely affected after degeneration of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. In the present study, we examined theExpand

Quantifying the effects of the electrode–brain interface on the crossing electric currents in deep brain recording and stimulation
A depth electrode-brain interface (EBI) is formed once electrodes are implanted into the human brain. We investigated the impact of the EBI on the crossing electric currents during both deep brainExpand

The effect of motor imagery with specific implement in expert badminton player
Motor skill can be improved with mental simulation. Implements are widely used in daily life and in various sports. However, it is unclear whether the utilization of implements enhances the effect ofExpand

The role of visual perception in action anticipation in basketball athletes
Athletes exhibit better anticipation abilities than novices. However, it is not known whether this difference is related to different visual perceptions between them and which neural elements areExpand

Exercise-induced changes of the capillaries in the cortex of middle-aged rats
Previous studies have shown that running exercise could increase regional cerebral blood flow. There have been previous studies investigating the effects of running exercise on capillary density inExpand

Unilateral low-frequency stimulation of central piriform cortex inhibits amygdaloid-kindled seizures in Sprague–Dawley rats
The central piriform cortex (cPC) is considered to be critically involved in the generation and propagation of kindled seizures. Our previous study found that low-frequency stimulation (LFS) of theExpand

Evidence for a distinct group of nestin-immunoreactive neurons within the basal forebrain of adult rats
Nestin is an intermediate filament protein serving as a marker for neuroprogenitor and stem cells. Here we report that a cluster of previously unrecognized nestin immunoreactive (nestin-ir) neuronsExpand

Unilateral low-frequency stimulation of central piriform cortex delays seizure development induced by amygdaloid kindling in rats
Low-frequency stimulation of the kindling site interferes with the course of kindling epileptogenesis. The present study examined the effect of unilateral low-frequency stimulation of the centralExpand

Adult neurogenesis is reduced in the dorsal hippocampus of rats displaying learned helplessness behavior
Clinical and preclinical studies suggest that the hippocampus has a role in the pathophysiology of major depression. In the learned helplessness (LH) animal model of depression after inescapableExpand

Critical Roles of Translation Initiation and RNA Uridylation in Endogenous Retroviral Expression and Neural Differentiation in Pluripotent Stem Cells.
Previous studies have suggested that the loss of the translation initiation factor eIF4G1 homolog NAT1 induces excessive self-renewability of naive pluripotent stem cells (PSCs); yet the role of NAT1Expand
