Aquaporin-4 (AQP4) is the major water channel expressed at fluid-tissue barriers throughout the brain and plays a crucial role in cerebral water balance. To assess whether these channels influence brain extracellular space (ECS) under resting physiological conditions, we used the established real-time iontophoresis method with tetramethylammonium (TMA(+))(More)
For intercity highway with many branches, the video data for each monitoring node is very large and it is unlikely to fuse these data without time synchronization. In this paper an object-based video reconstruction approach is presented for route-oriented tasks of intercity highway monitoring with many branches using low cost distributed video capturing(More)
Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is an inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system that can produce marked neurological deficit. Current NMO therapies include immunosuppressants, plasma exchange and B-cell depletion. Here, we evaluated 14 potential remyelinating drugs emerging from prior small molecule screens done to identify drugs for(More)
The astrocyte water channel aquaporin-4 (AQP4) regulates extracellular space (ECS) K(+) concentration ([K(+)]e) and volume dynamics following neuronal activation. Here, we investigated how AQP4-mediated changes in [K(+)]e and ECS volume affect the velocity, frequency, and amplitude of cortical spreading depression (CSD) depolarizations produced by surface(More)
