BACKGROUND Glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) has been linked to prodepressant-like effects in rodents. However, the roles of GSK-3β and the hippocampal dentate gyrus in regulating these behavioral effects remain unclear. METHODS A lentiviral vector was utilized to site-specifically express GSK-3β constitutively in the hippocampal DG in a mouse model of(More)
Inhalation anesthetic isoflurane has been reported to induce caspase activation and accumulation of β-amyloid (Aβ), however, the down-stream consequences of these effects are largely unknown. Isoflurane has also been shown to impair learning and memory, however, the up-stream mechanisms of these effects remain largely to be determined. Facilitation of(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that dysregulation of micro (mi)RNAs is associated with the etiology of various neuropsychiatric disorders, including depression and schizophrenia. Cerebralcare Granule® (CG) is a Chinese herbal medicine, which has been reported to have an ameliorative effect on brain injury by attenuating blood‑brain barrier disruption(More)
Computer-assisted surgical simulation is being used increasingly in orthognathic surgery. However, occlusal definition is still undertaken using model surgery with subsequent digitization via surface scanning or cone beam computed tomography. A software tool has been developed and a workflow set up in order to achieve a virtual occlusal definition. The(More)
