Impaired regulation of emotional memory is a feature of several affective disorders, including depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. Such regulation occurs, in part, by interactions between the hippocampus and the basolateral amygdala (BLA). Recent studies have indicated that within the adult hippocampus, newborn neurons may contribute to(More)
Stress is a potent modulator of the mammalian brain. The highly conserved stress hormone response influences many brain regions, particularly the hippocampus, a region important for memory function. The effect of acute stress on the unique population of adult neural stem/progenitor cells (NPCs) that resides in the adult hippocampus is unclear. We found that(More)
^ but chose to equate it with a postulated Gaskiers-related d 13 C excursion from circa 580 Ma (35). Instead, our data indicate that this globally correlated negative d 13 C excursion is not related to any known glaciation (36). The duration of this excursion is unconstrained; however, given that it is captured within over 100 m of section in Oman (Fig. 1)(More)
Attempts were made to determine the hypoglossal sensory inputs to the parabrachial nucleus (PBN) through the spinal cord. Wheatgerm agglutinin conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (WGA:HRP) was injected into the cat hypoglossal nerve. HRP-labeled fibers, predominantly derived from the glossopharyngeal and vagal nerves, were observed to terminate in lamina I(More)
The localization of sympathetic and parasympathetic neurons innervating the pancreas and spleen was studied in the cat utilizing retrograde transport of wheat germ agglutinin conjugated horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP). Injection of WGA-HRP into the pancreas resulted in retrograde labeling in the whole of the solar plexus, while injection of WGA-HRP into(More)
Serial 30 microns-thick sections through the midbrain tegmentum were stained with cresyl violet. The PL was found to be situated along the medial edge of the lateral lemniscus. The PL consisted of small- (10-15 microns) and medium-sized neurons (25-35 microns), and was the most prominent at the caudal level of the superior colliculus. In order to confirm(More)
Wheat germ agglutinin-conjugated horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP) injection into the hypoglossal nerve mainly resulted in retrograde labeling in the superior ganglia of the glossopharyngeal and vagal nerves ipsilaterally. Anterogradely labeled fibers were found in lamina I of the ipsilateral upper cervical spinal cord with a few distribution to laminae IV-V(More)
