Spontaneous neural hyperactivity in the central auditory pathway is often associated with deafness, the most common form of which is partial hearing loss. We quantified both peripheral hearing loss and spontaneous activity in single neurons of the contralateral inferior colliculus in a guinea-pig model 1 week after a unilateral partial deafness induced by(More)
Immunohistochemistry was used to investigate the topographic distribution of the alpha1 subunit of the GABA receptor (GABRA1) in guinea pig inferior colliculus after treatments that caused a unilateral loss of peripheral neural sensitivity in the high-frequency regions of the cochlea. Both forms of treatment (direct mechanical lesion of the cochlea and(More)
Objective: To investigate the expression of periodontal ligament-associated protein 1 (PLAP-1) and caveolin-1 in orthodontic tooth movement in rats and their roles in periodontal tissue reconstruction. Methods: Forty SD rats were randomly assigned to 4 groups of orthodontic tooth movements for 0, 3, 5, and 7 days, respectively. The controls and treatments(More)
