1. We sought first to determine whether neurones in caudomedial aspects of commissural nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) received input from cardiopulmonary C fibre endings supplied by the pulmonary versus systemic circulation. We then examined the role of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) and non-NMDA receptors in transmitting cardiopulmonary C fibre input to such(More)
In addition to the direct effects of thyroid hormone (TH) on peripheral organs, recent work showed metabolic effects of TH on the liver and brown adipose tissue via neural pathways originating in the hypothalamic paraventricular and ventromedial nucleus (PVN and VMH). So far, these experiments focused on short-term administration of TH. The aim of this(More)
Honokiol, a potent radical scavenger, has been demonstrated to ameliorate cerebral infarction following ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. However, its effects on myocardial I/R injury remain unclear. The present study aimed to examine the effects of honokiol on myocardial I/R injury and to investigate its potential cardioprotective mechanisms.(More)
