Changes in the three-dimensional structures of the myoepithelium of the dilator pupillae (MDP) during mydriasis and miosis were investigated in the rat by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Following fixation, SEM specimens were treated with sodium hydroxide to expose the muscle surface. Significant morphological(More)
Pathological changes of cerebral microvessels in transient ischemia were investigated by scanning electron microscopy of vascular corrosion casts. Wistar rats were treated with middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion for 30 min, 1 h, 3 h, 4 h, 5 h or 7 h and subsequent reperfusion for 2 h. The ultrastructures of the cast were observed and computer-aided(More)
Hair follicles have a longitudinal set of sensory nerve endings called palisade nerve endings (PN). We examined the junctional structures between the PN and outer root sheath (ORS) cells of hair follicles in the rat external ear. Transmission electron microscopy of serial thin sections showed that the processes of the ORS cells penetrated the basal lamina(More)
Palisade nerve endings (PNs) are mechanoreceptors around vellus hairs of mammals. Each lanceolate nerve ending (LN) of the PN is characterized by a sensory nerve ending symmetrically sandwiched by two processes of type II terminal Schwann cells (tSCIIs). However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the structural organization of the PN are poorly(More)
In this article, we define and develop differentiation of vector-valued functions on n-dimensional real normed linear spaces (refer to [16] and [17]). In this paper i, n, m are elements of N. The following propositions are true: (1) Let f be a set. Then f is a partial function from R m to R n if and only if f is a partial function from E m , · to E n , ·.(More)
Systemic angiotensin II (Ang II) is a dipsogen in terrestrial vertebrates and seawater teleosts. In eels, Ang II acts on the area postrema, a sensory circumventricular organ (CVO) and elicits water intake but other sensory CVOs have not yet been found in the eel forebrain. To identify sensory CVOs in the forebrain, eels were peripherally injected with Evans(More)
The palmaris longus muscle is one of the most variable muscles in human anatomy. During a routine anatomical dissection for medical students at Tottori University, we found duplicate palmaris longus muscles in the bilateral forearms together with the palmaris profundus muscle in the right forearm. The bilateral aberrant palmaris longus muscles were observed(More)
