Rapid voluntary limb movements are accompanied by a triphasic electromyogram (EMG): the agonist muscle discharges briefly to generate the initial limb displacement and then, in sequence, an antagonist and second agonist burst occur. The origins of these bursts of EMG have been attributed to both peripheral and central sources. We attempted to determine in(More)
1. The relation of somatosensory cortex (SI) neuronal activity to actively maintained limb posture was examined by recording from single neurons in the SI of monkeys trained to hold the forearm at different pronation-supination postures and to exert different directions and magnitudes of steady torque. 2. Neurons related to limb position were, in most cases(More)
Tumors are complex ecosystems composed of networks of interacting 'normal' and malignant cells. It is well recognized that cytokine-mediated cross-talk between normal stromal cells, including cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs), vascular endothelial cells, immune cells, and cancer cells, influences all aspects of tumor biology. Here we demonstrate that the(More)
Oncolytic viruses are known to stimulate the antitumor immune response by specifically replicating in tumor cells. This is believed to be an important aspect of the durable responses observed in some patients and the field is rapidly moving toward immunotherapy. As a further means to engage the immune system, we engineered a virus, vesicular stomatitis(More)
The systemic delivery of therapeutic viruses, such as oncolytic viruses or vaccines, is limited by the generation of neutralizing antibodies. While pseudotyping of rhabdoviruses with the lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus glycoprotein has previously allowed for multiple rounds of delivery in mice, this strategy has not translated to other animal models.
