BACKGROUND Diffuse noxious inhibitory control (DNIC) is a phenomenon whereby wide dynamic range neurons are selectively and powerfully inhibited through the central nervous system by noxious stimuli heterotopically applied to a body area distant from their excitatory receptive fields. Previous work has shown that systemic administration of an(More)
The effect of the 21-aminosteroid U74006F, an inhibitor of iron-dependent lipid peroxidation, on neurologic outcome and cerebral edema was evaluated in adult male Sprague-Dawley rats subjected to a fluid percussion temporal brain injury followed by 45 min of hypoxia (PaO2 = 30.0 mm Hg). The rats were divided randomly into five groups. Bolus injections of a(More)
Detailed temporal and spatial distributions of lactate production are presented for graded fluid-percussion brain injury in the rat. A one-dimensional proton spin-echo spectroscopic imaging (1D SESI) technique, performed with a surface coil, is presented and evaluated. This technique, which represents a practical compromise, provides spatially localized(More)
