The effects of somatosensory electrical stimulation on the dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN) activity of control and tone-exposed hamsters were investigated. One to three weeks after sound exposure and control treatment, multiunit activity was recorded at the surface of the left DCN before, during, and after electrical stimulation of the basal part of the left(More)
Our recent study has shown that somatosensory electrical stimulation may be useful to modulate sound-induced hyperactivity in the dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN), a neural correlate of certain forms of tinnitus. Somatosensory electrical stimulation induced both suppressive and excitatory effects on neural activity in the DCN of both control and tone-exposed(More)
Projections of the interneurons of the facial nucleus to respiration-related areas in the brainstem of the rat were revealed by unilateral, iontophorectic injection of the anterograde neuronal tracer, Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin (PHA-L), into the facial nucleus after motor neurons degeneration had been induced by axotomy of the facial nerve.(More)
Objective. Parkinson's disease (PD) is a severe neurological disease and its risk factors remain largely unknown. A meta-analysis was carried out to investigate the relationship of overweight and obesity with PD. Methods. We used PubMed, EMBASE, and the Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) databases to identify studies of associations between(More)
UNLABELLED Ciliopathies are an emerging class of devastating disorders with pleiotropic symptoms affecting both the central and peripheral systems and commonly associated with hydrocephalus. Even though ciliary components and three master transcriptional regulators have been identified, little is known about the signaling molecules involved. We previously(More)
The size of neural stem cell (NSC) pool at birth determines the starting point of adult neurogenesis. Aberrant neurogenesis is associated with major mental illness, in which ULK4 is proposed as a rare risk factor. Little is known about factors regulating the NSC pool, or function of the ULK4. Here, we showed that Ulk4(tm1a/tm1a) mice displayed a(More)
The aim of the present study was to gain insight into the neuroprotection effects and mechanism of thiazolidinedione pioglitazone in both in vitro and in vivo MPP+/MPTP induced PD models. In vivo experimental results showed that oral treatment of pioglitazone resulted in significant improvements in behavior symptoms damaged by MPTP and increase in the(More)
