Although the orexigenic action of peptide hormones such as ghrelin and growth hormone releasing peptide is different between chickens and mammals, the anorexigenic action of peptide hormones is similar in both species. For example, central administration of peptide hormones such as leptin, cholecystokinin or glucagon has been shown to suppress food intake(More)
Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), structurally similar to glucagon, synthesized from the precursor proglucagon, is a well known anorexigenic peptide in the brain of several animal species. However, there are no previous reports concerning GLP-1-containing neurons in the chick brain. The aim of the present study was to investigate the distribution of(More)
We simulated the way that pelvic floor muscles (PFM) generate zonal compression on the vagina and urethra in order to maintain urinary continence. Raw data were obtained using a probe to map the distribution of vaginal closure forces. Simulation model was made using ordinary Spring-mass model. The biomechanical properties are applied to the spring of the(More)
Proopiomelanocortin (POMC, a precursor of anorexigenic neuropeptides) neurons in hypothalamus suppresses food intake in both mammals and chickens. In mammals, several lines of evidence suggest that POMC-derived anorexigenic peptides upregulate mRNA levels of anorexigenic peptides such as corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) and thyrotropin-releasing factor(More)
A virtual reality environment to visualize and manipulate 3D spatial human heart model and catheter in real-time was developed recently to interact with actual catheter to conduct electrocardiogram simulations. Since in the captured images, the catheter is loop-crossing, irregularly shaped, and often broken by the myocardium, it is difficult to catch the(More)
The present study was carried out to investigate whether the hypothalamus is involved in the anorexic effect of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in chicks. To examine this, Fos expression in the chick hypothalamus were immunohistochemically detected after intracerebroventricular (ICV) injection of 30-pmol GLP-1. ICV injection of GLP-1 stimulated the(More)
