PURPOSE To determine the morphologic changes in the retina in the macula and around the optic disc in patients with autosomal dominant optic atrophy (ADOA) associated with a mutation in the OPA1 gene. METHODS Cross-sectional images of the macular area of the retina were obtained by optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with ADOA who had a(More)
To study the role of nitric oxide (NO) in regulating oxygen consumption by vessel walls, the oxygen consumption rate of arteriolar walls in rat cremaster muscle was measured in vivo during flow-induced vasodilation and after inhibiting NO synthesis. The oxygen consumption rate of arteriolar was calculated based on the intra- and peri-vascular oxygen tension(More)
Monotonous automobile operation in our daily life may cause the lowering of what might be termed an activation state of the human body, resulting in an increased risk of an accident. We therefore propose to create a more suitable environment in-car so as to allow active operation of the vehicle, hopefully thus avoiding potentially dangerous situations(More)
