We examined the effects of continuous infusion of exendin (5-39), an antagonist of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptors, into the rat brain using a mini-osmotic pump on beta-amyloid protein-induced amnesia and apoptosis. Co-infusion of exendin (5-39) with beta-amyloid protein (1-40) prevented the memory impairment and DNA fragmentation in the(More)
OBJECTIVE Superficial temporal artery-middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) anastomosis has been used in moyamoya disease (MD) and non-moyamoya ischemic stroke (non-MD). It is important to monitor hemodynamic changes caused by bypass surgery for postoperative management. We evaluated the bypass blood flow during STA-MCA anastomosis by using indocyanine green(More)
The present study addresses the question of how within-word prosodic constituent boundaries constrain V-to-V coarticulation in Japanese. The smallest prosodic unit that might affect V-to-V coarticulation is the bimoraic foot. The effect of the foot boundary is observed in the present study: the bimoraic foot constrains the extent of V-to-V coarticulation in(More)
