Accumulating evidence suggests that an abnormal accumulation of iron in the substantia nigra (SN) is one of the defining characteristics of Parkinson's disease (PD). Accordingly, the potential neuroprotection of Fe chelators is widely acknowledged for the treatment of PD. Although desferrioxamine (DFO), an iron chelator widely used in clinical settings, has(More)
PURPOSE This study investigates the use of homodigital reverse dorsoradial flap with neurorrhaphy for thumb soft tissue defect. METHODS From 1996 to 2010, the homodigital dorsoradial flap was performed on seven adult patients and one 3-year-old boy. The flaps ranged from 1.2 to approximately 3.0 cm × 2.0 to approximately 4.2 cm in size. In six of the(More)
During the early developmental period, long-term potentiation (LTP) can be induced in both vertical and horizontal connections in the rat visual cortex. However, the temporal difference in LTP change between the two pathways during animal development remains unclear. In this study, LTP in vertical (from layer IV to layer II/III) and horizontal (from layer(More)
