The aim of this study was to define the effects of glutamate release on cell death in an eleven vessel rat occlusion model. Male Sprague-Dawley rats (250-350g) were used for the 11 vessel occlusion ischemic model, which was induced by a 5- and 10-min transient occlusion. During the surgical procedure, the extracellular glutamate concentration was measured(More)
PURPOSE Most students choose the same option to questions in course evaluation surveys. Identical answers to each question render the results unreliable. The purpose of this study was to analyze the trend of medical student' consistent responses to course evaluations. METHODS The data of this study were the results of a course evaluation over 3 years(More)
Vertical light-emitting diodes (VLEDs) have attracted considerable attention owing to their improved thermal, electrical, and optical performance compared to conventional LEDs. To fabricate VLEDs, a bonding technique is required following laser lift-off. Eutectic bonding techniques are preferred owing to their low-heat mechanism and production safety.(More)
