ABSTRACT
Presents a study on the pattern in the perivascular arrangement of oligodendrocytes. Control of blood flow to neurons;Orientation of the cellular organization of the nervous system; Dispersal of polysaccharide-like material throughout the gray matter and believed to be distributed within the cell bodies of astrocytes.

    Background. Adequate cutaneous microvascular blood flow and tissue oxygen tension are important prerequisites for successful tissue repair. The efficacy of tissue repair decreases with age and is linked to the age-related functional decline of unmyelinated sensory neurons that are important for...

    SummaryBlood flow-metabolism uncoupling is a well-documented phenomenon after traumatic brain injury, but little is known about the direct consequences for white matter. The aim of this study was to quantitatively assess the topographic interrelationship between local cerebral blood flow (LCBF)...

    Different findings indicate that rostral ventrolateral reticular nucleus (RVL) is neuronal substrate of integration and regulation of the cardiovascular functions. Some efferent RVL neurons project to the thoraco-lumbar spinal cord and excite preganglionic sympathetic neurons, to the spinal...

    Astrocytes are fundamentally important to the maintenance and proper functioning of the central nervous system. During the period of development when myelination is occurring, white matter astrocytes are particularly sensitive to ischemic injury and their failure to regulate glutamate during...

    Protoplasmic astrocytes have been reported to exhibit neuroprotective effects on neurons, but there has been no direct evidence for a functional relationship between protoplasmic astrocytes and neural stem cells (NSCs). In this study, we examined neuronal differentiation of NSCs induced by...

    Background: Recent work has suggested that the ovarian steroid 17β-estradiol, at physiological concentrations, may exert protective effects in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and acute ischemic stroke.

    Astrocytes are the most abundant and functionally diverse glial population in the vertebrate central nervous system (CNS). However, the mechanisms underlying astrocyte specification are poorly understood. It is well established that cellular diversification of neurons in the embryo is generated...

    Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is released from platelets following injury and also plays a role in neural development but little is known about its effects in the adult central nervous system (CNS). We have examined the expression of LPA receptors 1-3 (LPA1–3) in intact mouse spinal cord...

    Background: Huntington's Disease (HD) is a devastating neurodegenerative disorder that clinically manifests as motor dysfunction, cognitive impairment and psychiatric symptoms. There is currently no cure for this progressive and fatal disorder. The causative mutation of this hereditary disease...
