Impaired Olfactory Associative Behavior of Honeybee Workers Due to Contamination of Imidacloprid in the Larval Stage
It is demonstrated that a sublethal dosage of imidacloprid given to the larvae affects the subsequent associative ability of the adult honeybee workers and may affect the survival condition of the entire colony. Expand
The effect of root architecture on the shearing resistance of root-permeated soils
Abstract This paper aims to investigate the effect of the root architecture on the shear strength increment provided by plant roots in the soil. In situ shear tests were conducted for this purpose.Expand
Physical Exercise Induces Excess Hsp72 Expression and Delays the Development of Hyperalgesia and Allodynia in Painful Diabetic Neuropathy Rats
Progressive exercise training markedly decreases diabetes-associated neuropathic pain, including thermal hyperalgesia and mechanical allodynia, in rats, and this protective effect is related to the increase of Hsp72, but not TNF-&agr; and IL-6, expression in the spinal cord and peripheral nerves of STZ-induced diabetes.

Risk factors associated with postoperative sore throat after tracheal intubation: an evaluation in the postanesthetic recovery room.
Five risk factors related to postoperative sore throat were identified in patients undergoing endotracheal general anesthesia and they were female gender, age between 30-39, surgical sites within the oral or nasal cavity, or around the neck, use of nitrous oxide during anesthesia, and duration of anesthesia longer than 2 hours.

Exercise Training Attenuates Neuropathic Pain and Cytokine Expression After Chronic Constriction Injury of Rat Sciatic Nerve
The results suggest that progressive exercise training decreases peripheral neuropathic pain as well as TNF-&agr; and IL-1&bgr; overproduction and increases HSP72 expression after CCI of the sciatic nerve. Expand
Exercise Combined With Ultrasound Attenuates Neuropathic Pain in Rats Associated With Downregulation of IL-6 and TNF-&agr;, but With Upregulation of IL-10
It is found that TU + TE is better than TU or TE alone for treating neuropathic pain and may be straightly associated with less TNF-&agr; and IL-6 expression and more IL-10 expression. Expand
Nisoxetine produces local but not systemic analgesia against cutaneous nociceptive stimuli in the rat.
Nisoxetine had a local anesthetic effect as infiltrative cutaneous analgesia with durations of actions longer than that of lidocaine or MK-801, suggesting that N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors may not contribute to the cutaneous (local) anestheticeffect of nisxetine or lidocane. Expand
Activation of mGluR2/3 underlies the effects of N-acetylcystein on amygdala-associated autism-like phenotypes in a valproate-induced rat model of autism
Results provide the first evidence that the disruption of social interaction and enhanced presynaptic excitatory transmission in VPA-exposed offspring could be rescued by NAC, which depends on the activation of mGluR2/3. Expand
Comparison of hydration, tyrosinase resistance, and antioxidant activation in three kinds of pearl powders.
Tests for transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and evaluations of the skin surface hydration of test subjects showed that pearl powder has a satisfactory moisturizing effect on skin and that P-mu has a distinctly stronger moisturizer effect than P-w. Expand
Social isolation‐induced increase in NMDA receptors in the hippocampus exacerbates emotional dysregulation in mice
The results suggest that social isolation‐induced increased expression of NMDA receptors in the hippocampus involves stress exacerbation of aggressive behaviors, which may open a new avenue for the treatment of psychopathologies that involve outbursts of emotional aggression in neglected children.
