BACKGROUND Anatomic and electrophysiological studies have revealed that the neurons located in the media vestibular nuclei (MVN) receive most of the sensory vestibular input coming from the ipsilateral labyrinth and the responses of MVN neurons to caloric stimulation directly reflect changes in primary vestibular afferent activity. The aim of this study was(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the interaction among aquaporin1 (AQP), aquaporin2 (AQP2) and antisecretory factor( AF) , and their expression in the rat inner ear for furthur understanding of Meniere' s disease. METHODS Inner ear tissue section of six healthy male Sprague-Dawley rats was performed and Envision immunochemical staining was applied to detect the(More)
The cortical structural and functional differences in athletes and novices were investigated with a cross-sectional paradigm. We measured the gray matter volumes and resting-state functional connectivity in 21 basketball players and 21 novices with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques. It was found that gray matter volume in the left anterior insula(More)
OBJECTIVE To elucidate the neurological mechanism of lidocaine's suppression to tinnitus. METHODS Thirty-four Wistar rats weighing 300-350 grams were randomly divided into IC group (n = 17) and AC group (n = 17), according to microdialysis region. Each group was randomly subdivided into saline treatment group (n = 4), salicylate treatment group (n = 6),(More)
OBJECTIVE To understand what role of the transient outward potassium channels and the delayed rectifier potassium channels play in the mechanism of salicylate-induced tinnitus. METHODS The effects of salicylate on the transient outward potassium channels and the delayed rectifier potassium channels in freshly dissociated inferior colliculus neurons of(More)
