Amputation with Median Nerve Redirection (Targeted Reinnervation) Reactivates Forepaw Barrel Subfield in Rats

Paul D. Marasco, Todd A. Kuiken

The Journal of Neuroscience

, November 2010

Prosthetic limbs are difficult to control and do not provide sensory feedback. Targeted reinnervation was developed as a neural–machine interface for amputees to address these issues. [READ THE FULL ABSTRACT]

Distribution of norepinephrine transporters in the non-human primate brain

H.R. Smith, T.J.R. Beveridge, L.J. Porrino

The Journal of Neuroscience

, Vol 138, Issue 2

, 2006

Key words: norepinephrine transporter; [3H]nisoxetine; rhesus monkey; autoradiography

Noradrenergic terminals in the central nervous system are widespread; as such this system plays a role in varying functions such as stress responses, sympathetic regulation, attention, and memory processing, and its dysregulation has been linked to several pathologies. [READ THE FULL ABSTRACT]
