Topics from this paper

Sleep habits and Physiological Penal Gland Calcification (A Magnified Topographical Evolution Study)
TLDR
There were a strong correlation between PGC density and age, male gender and use of diazepam and Sleep with light on at night & decreased hours of night sleep showed statistically significant correlation with PGC volume and thus on PG function. Expand
Normal neuroanatomical variants that may be misinterpreted as disease entities.
TLDR
The embryology and development, the various imaging features as well as the clinical relevance and differential diagnoses of each normal neuroanatomical variant are outlined. Expand
Pineal Gland: Normal Size, Appearance, and Enhancement
TLDR
Pineal glands may appear partially cystic in up to 50–60 % of patients and may enhance inhomogeneously after administration of intravenous contrast, but should not cause mass effect on the adjacent midbrain tectum, which places the patient at risk for hydrocephalus as a result of aqueductal obstruction. Expand
Assessment of Pineal Gland Volume and Calcification in Healthy Subjects: Is it Related to Aging?
TLDR
This study brings a radiological point of view to the distribution of pineal calcification according to age that has a link with melatonin secretion. Expand
MRI-based assessment of the pineal gland in a large population of children aged 0–5 years and comparison with pineoblastoma: part I, the solid gland
TLDR
This study establishes norms for solid pineal gland size in non-retinoblastoma children aged 0–5 years and compares the findings with published pineablastoma cases to establish knowledge of the size of the normal Pineal gland is helpful for detection of pineal glands abnormalities, particularly pineoblastomas. Expand
Neuroimaging of the Pineal Gland: Focus on Primary Insomnia
TLDR
The pineal gland and its effects are currently experiencing an emerging body of interest among scientists, physicians, and even the general population, and a substantial effort of research has been conducted to uncover potential pathophysiological impacts of melatonin. Expand
Human pineal gland: Histomorphological study in different age groups and different causes of death
TLDR
It is concluded that not only the age but also the different causes of death may severely affect the basic micro-architecture of human pineal gland. Expand
Morphology and function: MR pineal volume and melatonin level in human saliva are correlated
TLDR
To investigate the relation between circadian saliva melatonin levels and pineal volume as determined by MRI, a high interindividual variability circadian rhythm is followed with a circadian rhythm with a highInterindividual variability is investigated. Expand

TLDR
It is not yet certain what pbysiobgical~dependontbepineal clock for cues is, but there is evidence at band ~ggest that the pineal participates in sanewayintbequlationoftbegonads,orsexglands. Expand
The Weight of the Pineal Gland in Malignancy
A series of 150 pineal glands removed at routine postmortems in a general hospital have been examined. Statistical analysis of the weights of 147 of these glands from patients aged between 45 and 90Expand
Enzymes of the human pineal body.
TLDR
It is evident that the enzyme levels in the pineal are subject to change in response to as yet unknown environmental and/or pathophysiological variables. Expand
Statistical relationships of weight of the human pineal to age and malignancy
TLDR
The authors conclude that the human pineal does not undergo cellular atrophy after puberty and that there is some relationship between the presence of malignancy and the weight of the human Pineal. Expand
Reversal of the effect of pinealectomy in female rats by multiple isogeneic pineal transplants.
TLDR
The intramuscular transplantation of 10 or 20 isogeneic pineals in a pinealectomized rat consistently reversed the effect of pinealectomy on the estrous cycle, whatever the ambient illumination. Expand
AGE AND ENZYME ACTIVITY IN THE HUMAN PINEAL.
Influence of the Œstrous Cycle and Ovariectomy on the Phospholipid Content of the Pineal Gland in the Rat
TLDR
The histological and histochemical picture of the gland was examined during the œstrous cycle and following ovariectomy to obtain some knowledge of the possible relationship between the pineal gland and the gonads. Expand
Melatonin, a Pineal Substance: Effect on the Rat Ovary
Daily injection of microgram amounts of melatonin in rats decreased the incidence of estrus and reduced ovarian weight. Circulating melatonin was selectively taken up and retained by the ovary andExpand
