Comments Off on The neural response properties and cortical organization of a rapidly adapting muscle sensory group response that overlaps with the frequencies that elicit the kinesthetic illusion.

Kinesthesia is the sense of limb movement. It is fundamental to efficient motor control, yet its neurophysiological components remain poorly understood.→ Read more

Comments Off on Increasing acetyl-CoA metabolism attenuates injury and alters spinal cord lipid content in mice subjected to experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis

Acetate supplementation increases brain acetyl-CoA metabolism, alters histone and non-histone protein acetylation, increases brain energy reserves, and is anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective in rat models of neuroinflammation and neuroborreliosis.→ Read more

Comments Off on Emergent Global Contractile Force in Cardiac Tissues

The heart is a complex organ whose structure and function are intricately linked at multiple length scales. Although several advancements have been achieved in the field of cardiac tissue engineering, current in vitro cardiac tissues do not fully replicate the structure or function necessary for effective cardiac therapy and cardiotoxicity→ Read more

Comments Off on Impact of immersion oils and mounting media on the confocal imaging of dendritic spines

Structural plasticity, such as changes in dendritic spine morphology and density, reflect changes in synaptic connectivity and circuitry. Procedural variables used in different methods for labeling dendritic spines have been quantitatively evaluated for their impact on the ability to resolve individual spines in confocal microscopic analyses. In contrast, there have→ Read more

Comments Off on Insulin sensitizers improve learning and attenuate tau hyperphosphorylation and neuroinflammation in 3xTg-AD mice

Sporadic Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a multifactorial metabolic brain disorder characterized by progressive neurodegeneration. Decreased brain energy and glucose metabolism occurs before the appearance of AD symptoms and worsens while the disease progresses.→ Read more

Comments Off on Cortical innervation of the hypoglossal nucleus in the non-human primate (Macaca mulatta)

The corticobulbar projection to the hypoglossal nucleus was studied from the frontal, parietal, cingulate and insular cortices in the rhesus monkey using high-resolution anterograde tracers and stereology.→ Read more

Comments Off on Brain Imaging Differences in Infants at Genetic Risk for Alzheimer’s

Using a special MRI technique designed for studies of sleeping infants, researchers at Brown University and Banner Alzheimer’s Institute have found that infants who carry a gene associated with an increased risk for Alzheimer’s disease tend to have differences in brain development compared to infants who do not carry the→ Read more
