Developing axons are attracted to the CNS midline by Netrin proteins and other as yet unidentified signals. Netrin signals are transduced in part by Frazzled (Fra)/DCC receptors. Genetic analysis in Drosophila indicates that additional unidentified receptors are needed to mediate the attractive response to Netrin. Analysis of Bolwig's nerve reveals that(More)
Hepatic microvesicular steatosis is a hallmark of drug-induced hepatotoxicity and early-stage fatty liver disease. Current histopathology techniques are inadequate for the clinical evaluation of hepatic microvesicular steatosis. In this paper, we explore the use of multimodal coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy for the detection and(More)
The 2-part study provides evidence that the carrier phrase "You will say..." contains perceptual cues which can be used by the listener to help identify place of initial consonant articulation for many test words, and when these cues are removed, the test words in isolation constitute a mre difficult word discrimination test. In the first experiment, test(More)
Exposure to high altitude (HA) affects neurotransmitter levels in the adult brain and induces a number of neurologic and behavioral disturbances. The present work was undertaken to investigate the effects of chronic exposure to a moderate hypoxic environment (natural altitude of 3800 m, 12.8% O2 in inspired air) on the development from birth until adulthood(More)
