Brain disorders and environmental factors can affect neurogenesis and gliogenesis in the hippocampus. These studies investigated the effects of chronic exposure to tobacco smoke on progenitor cell proliferation and the survival and phenotype of new cells in the dentate gyrus of adolescent rats. The rats were exposed to tobacco smoke for 4h/day for 14 days.(More)
The harvest of intact cerebral microvessel yields could permit the in vitro characterization of mechanisms that underlie numerous vascular-linked central nervous system (CNS) phenomena. Here, we test (1) the effect of mild enzyme digestion on microvessel purity and yield; and then (2) the effect of variable centrifugation and filtration methods on(More)
