The hypothalamic arcuate nucleus plays an important role in the gating system controlling the secretion of hypothalamic neurons. In order to analyze this gating mechanism, arcuate neurons from rats aged 21-22 days were cultured in a chemically defined medium. Addition of nerve growth factor to this medium increased the survival of the arcuate neurons.(More)
In the next years several power plants throughout Europe have to be replaced and the questions is whether to build coal fired power plants with carbon capture and storage (CCS). In a study for the city of Kiel in northern Germany only a 800 MW coal power plant reaches a required minimum rentability. We use the study for an additional economic and(More)
A method to culture neurons from various hypothalamic brain area of young and fetal rats is described. Hypothalamic slabs will survive for several months, and they are able to make interslab connections. Identification of the cultured cells was done by means of immunocytochemical and Lucifer Yellow liposome techniques.
