The purpose of this study was to determine some ultrasonographic standards of temporomandibular joints with normally positioned discs. Nineteen patients from 18 to 45 years old (average age: 27.4 years; 16 females and 3 males), with history of orofacial pain, but without clinical or radiological signs of disc displacement, underwent ultrasonography (US) and(More)
Synaptonemal complex (SC) analysis of XY pairing in the goat (Capra hircus; 2!z = 60) was investigated by electron microscopy for the first time in this species. Synapsis of the X and Y chromosomes begins during the mid-late zygotene stage as the autosomes complete their pairing. Only a small portion of the total length of the Y is paired with the X(More)
Synaptonemal complexes were analysed by electron microscopy in 2 bucks heterozygous for the 5/15 Robertsonian translocation. The cis configuration (free homo-logous 5 and 15 chromosomes on the same side of the 5/15 translocated chromosome) was found in all 50 cells examined. This feature is considered a prerequisite for the development of balanced gametes.(More)
In mice, tactile stimulation of the nipples appears to be critical for the onset of postpartum maternal aggression. Surgical removal of the nipples (thelectomy) blocks aggression if performed prior to parturition. In rats, indirect evidence suggests a similar role for nipple stimulation in maternal aggression. Two experiments were undertaken to determine(More)
