We have reported that there is heterologous interaction between the mu, delta or kappa opioid receptors and the receptors for the chemokines CCL5/RANTES or CXCL12/SDF-1 in the regulation of antinociception in rats. CX3CL1/fractalkine, a chemokine that exclusively binds to CX3CR1, has been found...
Acetylcholinesterase (AchE) is an important peripheral membrane-bound enzyme, crucial for cholinergic neurotransmission. Changes in AchE activity, kinetic and thermotropic properties were studied in hepatic encephalopathy (HE) associated with acute liver failure induced experimentally by the...
In this study the role of mitochondrial secretory PLA 2 -IIA in glutamate-induced cell death in cultured cerebellar granule neurons has been investigated. Inhibition of secretory PLA 2 -IIA blocked glutamate-induced cell death. Since PLA 2 may generate reactive oxygen species (ROS), we have...
Recent experimental and theoretical work on reinforcement learning has shed light on the neural bases of learning from rewards and punishments. One fundamental problem in reinforcement learning is the credit assignment problem, or how to properly assign credit to actions that lead to reward or...
A discourse context provides a reader with a great deal of information that can provide constraints for further language processing, at several different levels. In this experiment we used event-related potentials (ERPs) to explore whether discourse-generated contextual constraints are based on...
Parkinson's disease is characterized by slow and progressive degeneration of dopaminergic neurons. Increasing evidence has suggested an important role for exposure to pesticides such as rotenone in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease. Although rotenone can elicit immune responses in...
The effect of neonatal masseteric nerve transection on primary proprioceptors was examined in the mesencephalic trigeminal tract nucleus (Mes5) of the rat. At 72 h to 21 days after the injury, the number of Mes5 neurons decreased on the side ipsilateral to the transection. The means ± SD of...
Vaccinia virus complement control protein (VCP) is an immunomodulator that inhibits both the classical and alternate pathways of the complement system, therefore preventing cell death and inflammation. VCP has previously been shown to be therapeutically effective in mild and moderate traumatic...
