Intracortical Axonal Projections of Lamina VI Cells of the Primary Somatosensory Cortex in the Rat: A Single-Cell Labeling Study
A sample of 84 neurons in lamina VIa of rat somatosensory cortex (S1) was juxtacellularly labeled with biocytin, and the axons of the neurons were traced. Three classes of cells were identified asExpand

Projections to layer VI of the posteromedial barrel field in the rat: a reappraisal of the role of corticothalamic pathways.
The present study bears on afferents that terminate in layer VI of the posteromedial barrel field in the rat. Their origin was determined by the retrograde transport of cholera toxin, and theirExpand

Gain modulation by serotonin in pyramidal neurones of the rat prefrontal cortex
Serotonin (5‐HT) is widely implicated in brain functions and diseases. The vertebrate brain is extensively innervated by 5‐HT fibres originating from the brain stem, and 5‐HT axon terminals interactExpand

Functional brain imaging in irritable bowel syndrome with rectal balloon-distention by using fMRI.
AIM Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is characterized by abdominal pain and changes in stool habits. Visceral hypersensitivity is a key factor in the pathophysiology of IBS. The aim of this study wasExpand

Overexpression of CD151 Predicts Prognosis in Patients with Resected Gastric Cancer
PURPOSE The tetraspanin CD151 acts as a promoter of metastasis and invasion in several tumors. However, the role of CD151 in human gastric cancer (HGC) remains unclear. METHODS Twenty HGC specimensExpand
