Females frequently perform better in empathy, interpersonal sensitivity, and emotional recognition than do males. The mirror-neuron system has been proposed to play an important role in social cognition. It remains to be clarified, however, whether the neuroanatomy underlying the human mirror neuron system exhibits sex differences. With the use of(More)
Although male reproductive function is primarily androgen dependent, many studies suggest that estrogens have direct actions on the male reproductive organs. Pelvic autonomic neurons provide the motor control of the internal reproductive organs and the penis and various properties of these neurons are affected by endogenous androgens. However, the possible(More)
In adults and children, head trauma can have long-term neuropathological and functional consequences. The thalamus is a major site of remote neurodegeneration after cortical damage in adult humans and experimental animals, but less is known about thalamic responses to cortical injury in the immature brain. This study introduces an in vivo model of(More)
Notch signaling plays a critical role in the maintenance of intestinal homeostasis. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of Notch signaling in the apoptosis of intestinal epithelial cells after intestinal ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury. Male C57BL/6 mice were subjected to sham operation or I/R injury. Intestinal tissue samples were(More)
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cause of cancer-related mortality in the whole world (1). About one-third of colorectal carcinoma patients with acute colonic obstruction mandate emergency surgery (2). Current surgical options include intraoperative lavage, colonic segment resection involved with primary anastomosis, subtotal co-lectomy, colostomy(More)
