Morphology and electrical membrane properties of neurons in the superficial part of the magnocellular layer of the rat medullary dorsal horn (MDH: caudal subnucleus of the spinal trigeminal nucleus) were examined by using horizontal slice preparations. Intracellular recording and biocytin-injection combined with histochemical and immunohistochemical(More)
AIM To determine the memory-improving properties of huperzine A in aged rats with memory impairments naturally occurring or induced by scopolamine. METHODS Morris water maze was used to investigate the effects of huperzine A on the acquisition and memory impairments. RESULTS During 7-day acquisition trials, aged rats took longer latency to find the(More)
The role of iron deficiency in noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) was evaluated in 64 rats of four different experimental groups. Iron-deficient rats (ID-rats) and normal rats (N-rats) were simultaneously exposed to a steady state white noise (20-10,000 Hz) at 110 dB SPL for 30 min. Unexposed ID- and N-rats served as controls. In N-rats the temporary(More)
The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment has measured a nonzero value for the neutrino mixing angle θ(13) with a significance of 5.2 standard deviations. Antineutrinos from six 2.9 GWth reactors were detected in six antineutrino detectors deployed in two near (flux-weighted baseline 470 m and 576 m) and one far (1648 m) underground experimental halls. With(More)
The standard model of particle physics contains parameters--such as particle masses--whose origins are still unknown and which cannot be predicted, but whose values are constrained through their interactions. In particular, the masses of the top quark (M(t)) and W boson (M(W)) constrain the mass of the long-hypothesized, but thus far not observed, Higgs(More)
A measurement of the energy dependence of antineutrino disappearance at the Daya Bay reactor neutrino experiment is reported. Electron antineutrinos (ν¯(e)) from six 2.9  GW(th) reactors were detected with six detectors deployed in two near (effective baselines 512 and 561 m) and one far (1579 m) underground experimental halls. Using 217 days of data, 41(More)
We describe QUAERO, a method that (i) enables the automatic optimization of searches for physics beyond the standard model, and (ii) provides a mechanism for making high energy collider data generally available. We apply QUAERO to searches for standard model WW, ZZ, and t t macro production, to searches for these objects produced through a new heavy(More)
After trigeminal rhizotomy, some substance P-like immunoreactive (SP-LI) fibers and terminals in the spinal trigeminal caudal subnucleus (Vc), specially in its superficial laminae (laminae I and II), still remained in the rat. Employing a combination of Fluoro-Gold retrograde tracing and immunofluorescence histochemical staining for SP, we found that the(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of nimodipine on hippocampal regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and proinflammatory cytokines in rats with experimental vascular dementia. METHODS Male Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups (n = 15/group): sham operated controls (group A); focal cerebral ischaemia (group B); vascular dementia (group C);(More)
We present a search for charged Higgs bosons in decays of pair-produced top quarks in pp collisions at sqrt[s] = 1.8 TeV recorded by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. With no evidence for signal, we exclude most regions of the ( M(H+/-),tan(beta)) parameter space where the decay t--> H(+)b has a branching fraction >0.36 and(More)
