Osteopontin, a cancer metastasis-associated gene, is specifically up-regulated in central nervous system (CNS) atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT), but its biological behavior in the progression of CNS AT/RT has never been studied. We obtained plasma, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and brain tissue specimens from lobectomy or hemispherectomy samples from(More)
BACKGROUND Treadmill training is used for promoting rhythmical vigorous walking and for task-related training in patients with stroke. The neurological impact of treadmill training has not been established. The present investigation is aimed at (1) examining neurological changes over a four-week period after middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) in rats(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the increased understanding of treadmill training on stroke patients, its effects on different age groups are not clearly known. The present study presents such effects through a model of cerebral ischemia on young and old groups of rats. OBJECTIVES To investigate the effect of treadmill training on young and old rats after cerebral(More)
BACKGROUND The application of internet technology for telerehabilitation in patients with stroke has developed rapidly. OBJECTIVE The current study aimed to evaluate the effect of a bidirectional and multi-user telerehabilitation system on balance and satisfaction in patients with chronic stroke living in long-term care facilities (LTCFs). METHOD This(More)
We investigated the postnatal formation and origin of the microcyst, which are not fully elucidated at present, in the cochlear nucleus of gerbils. Sixty-six Mongolian gerbils were investigated at the light microscope level, and 35 of them were observed at the electron microscopic level. Foamy structures were evidently found at 2 days of age and remained(More)
