ABSTRACT
A definition of the medical term neurula is presented. According to the "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary," published by F.A. Davis Co., the term refers to the stage in the development of an embryo during which the neural plate develops and axial embryonic nervous structures are elaborated. The pronunciation of the term is also included.

    Background: Urotensin II (U-II) is a cyclic peptide originally isolated from the neurosecretory system of the teleost fish and subsequently found in other species, including man. U-II was identified as the natural ligand of a G-protein coupled receptor, namely UT receptor. U-II and UT receptor...

    The present study verified that a simple division of Weight/Aperture (W/A) from information obtained from the individual cubes could describe perceived heaviness when pairs of cubic objects were haptically held one-by-one for comparison utilizing a thumb/index finger grasp. To test the effect of...

    This paper investigates the dependence of synchronization transitions of bursting oscillations on the information transmission delay over scale-free neuronal networks with attractive and repulsive coupling. It is shown that for both types of coupling, the delay always plays a subtle role in...

    Recent neurophysiological experiments have demonstrated a remarkable effect of attention on the underlying neural activity that suggests for the first time that information encoding is indeed actively influenced by attention. Single cell recordings show that attention reduces both the neural...

    It is known that cell density influences the maturation process of in vitro neuronal networks. Neuronal cultures plated with different cell densities differ in number of synapses per neuron and thus in single neuron synaptic transmission, which results in a density-dependent neuronal network...
