The age-related morphological changes in the darkly stained sex-dimorphic nucleus (SDN-POA) and the lighter staining surrounding area (non-SDN-POA) within the medial division of preoptic nucleus of Long-Evans rats were studied. The long-term effects of estradiol benzoate (EB) on the changes were also assessed. During aging, the neuron loss in… (More)
Exposure to elevated temperature provokes a sequence of events (heat shock response) in all living organisms. Through this response, heat shock proteins (HSPs) are induced and protect the cells against subsequent injury. We investigated the effect of heat treatment on bicuculline-induced convulsions, and analyzed a possible role of HSPs. Screw electrodes… (More)
Vascular dementia is a common and potentially reversible type of dementing illness. Simple, yet valid, assessment instruments are needed to quantitate the severity of cognitive and functional impairment in vascular dementia patients seen in consultation or studied in therapeutic trails. Among sixty-three patients with known ischemic cerebrovascular disease,… (More)
Pain evoked unit discharges in the parafascicular nucleus could be inhibited by direct electrical stimulation of the centromedian nucleus of thalamus, with residual inhibitory effect lasting for several minutes after cessation of stimulation. The optimal frequency of stimulation for production of the inhibitory effect was found to be 4--8 pulses per second.… (More)
Space motion sickness (MS) is one of the most important problems in the field of space medicine. In order to prevent space MS, a new medicine, PMPA, has been prepared by means of synthesizing in our laboratory. The purposes of this study were to set up animal models of PMPA against MS, and to observe its effects on anti-MS, and to prove its function of… (More)
Neuron density, volume of the area and total neuron number were measured in the medial preoptic area, anterior hypothalamic area and arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus of young (6-month-old), middle age (14-month-old) and old (22-month-old) male and female rats. Intact male rats did not show neuron loss even in old age, while intact female rats manifested… (More)
In the crystal structure of the title compound, 2C(2)H(8)NO(+)·C(10)H(6)O(6)S(2) (2-), the anion lies on an inversion centre. The components are held together by O-H⋯O hydrogen bond, forming a 2:1 aggregate. The aggregates are further connected by N-H⋯O and C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
Neuronal nuclear volumes (NNVs) were measured in the medial preoptic nucleus (MPN), anterior hypothalamic area (AHA) and arcuate nucleus (ARN) of young adult, middle-aged, and old rats of both sexes. The NNVs in the darkly stained sexual-dimorphic nucleus of the preoptic area (SDN-POA) and the lighter staining surrounding area (non-SDN-POA) within the MPN… (More)
