Immunocytochemical technique was used to compare the content of substance P (SP), Met-enkephalin (Met-Enk) and neurotensin (NT) on two sides of the lumbar dorsal horn of rats in which the unilateral dorsolateral funiculus was transected while formalin (0.2 ml, 5%) was injected equally into two hindpaws. The results showed that the SP-like immunoreactivity(More)
The effects of intrathecally administered naloxone or aminophylline on the antinociception produced by intrathecal NE, 5-HT, morphine or adenosine receptor agonist, 5'-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosine (NECA) were observed in rats using the tail-flick test. The results show that: (1) the antinociception produced by NE with doses of 0.5 or 1.0 nmol could be(More)
The effects of intrathecally (IT) administered naloxone (Nal) on the antinociception produced by IT norepinephrine (NE), serotonin (5-HT), or morphine (Mor) were observed and compared in rats using the tail-flick (TF) assay. The results show that: a) NE, 5-HT, and Mor in doses of 1 nmol, 240 nmol, and 0.5 nmol, respectively, produce similar increases in(More)
The interactions between different doses of serotonin (5-HT) and norepinephrine (NE) in in vivo experiments on rat spinal cord dorsal horn cells was investigated using the integrated electromyography (EMG) measurement of the nociceptive hindlimb flexor reflex (FR). The results indicate that (1) intrathecal (IT) administration of low doses of 5-HT (60 nmol)(More)
The present study was designed to investigate the roles of different subtypes of opioid receptors in ventrolateral orbital cortex (VLO) opioid-evoked antinociception in formalin test by using an automatic detection system for recording the nociceptive behavior (agitation) and a manual method for detecting the duration of licking the injected paw in the(More)
Gravity gradient measurement makes use of the difference between the outputs of pairs of linear accelerometers, which results in cancelling out the common mode accelerations caused by mounting platform and external environment. One of the key technologies is to match the acceleration-to-voltage or acceleration-to-current transfer functions of the pairs of(More)
This study examines electrocorticography (ECoG) signals in patients with supratentorial meningioma before and after tumor resection, and discusses its predictive value with regard to postoperative epilepsy. Ninety-one patients with supratentorial meningioma, who presented with seizures, were studied. Patients were followed-up for 2 to 5 years, and the(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of nucleus raphe obscurus (NRO) in regulating the motility of sphincter of Oddi (SO). After fasting about l8~24 h, the rabbits were anesthetized with urethane (1.0 g/kg), and the myoelectric signals of SO were induced by a pair of copper electrodes inserted into the subsera. The results of(More)
