Neuroepithelial circuit formed by innervation of sensory enteroendocrine cells
(JOURNAL OF CLINICAL INVESTIGATION, 2015-02)
Neural Effects of rTMS: Single Neuron Recordings From a Rhesus Macaque
(JOURNAL OF ECT, 2015-09)
Platelet aggregation and mental stress induced myocardial ischemia: Results from the Responses of Myocardial Ischemia to Escitalopram Treatment (REMIT) study.
(Am Heart J, 2015-04)
BACKGROUND: Mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia (MSIMI) is common in patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) and associated with a poorer cardiovascular prognosis. Platelet hyperactivity is an important factor in ...
In vivo Modeling Implicates APOL1 in Nephropathy: Evidence for Dominant Negative Effects and Epistasis under Anemic Stress.
(PLoS Genet, 2015-07)
African Americans have a disproportionate risk for developing nephropathy. This disparity has been attributed to coding variants (G1 and G2) in apolipoprotein L1 (APOL1); however, there is little functional evidence supporting ...
A Peptide Uncoupling BDNF Receptor TrkB from Phospholipase Cγ1 Prevents Epilepsy Induced by Status Epilepticus.
The BDNF receptor tyrosine kinase, TrkB, underlies nervous system function in both health and disease. Excessive activation of TrkB caused by status epilepticus promotes development of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), revealing ...
The PsychENCODE project.
(Nat Neurosci, 2015-12)
Lack of evidence for ectopic sprouting of genetically labeled Aβ touch afferents in inflammatory and neuropathic trigeminal pain.
(Mol Pain, 2015-04-10)
BACKGROUND: Mechanical and in particular tactile allodynia is a hallmark of chronic pain in which innocuous touch becomes painful. Previous cholera toxin B (CTB)-based neural tracing experiments and electrophysiology studies ...
Improvement in visual search with practice: mapping learning-related changes in neurocognitive stages of processing.
(J Neurosci, 2015-04-01)
Practice can improve performance on visual search tasks; the neural mechanisms underlying such improvements, however, are not clear. Response time typically shortens with practice, but which components of the stimulus-response ...
Intra-operative hydroxyethyl starch is not associated with post-craniotomy hemorrhage.
BACKGROUND: Intraoperative intravascular volume expansion with hydroxyethyl starch-based colloids is thought to be associated with an increased risk of post-craniotomy hemorrhage. Evidence for this association is limited. ...
A Pharmacology-Based Enrichment Program for Undergraduates Promotes Interest in Science.
(CBE Life Sci Educ, 2015)
There is a strong need to increase the number of undergraduate students who pursue careers in science to provide the "fuel" that will power a science and technology-driven U.S. economy. Prior research suggests that both ...
