SFO Neurons are Glucose Responsive
Glucose is the primary metabolic signal reflecting the current energy state of the body. Glucose influences the excitability of neurons in the area postrema (AP), a circumventricular organ (CVO), prompting my interest in ...
Axotomized Spinal Commissural Interneurons of the Adult Feline: A study of axonal growth from dendrites and cut axons
Acquiring knowledge of the morphological, molecular, and functional changes that occur to neurons following axotomy is a key step for a comprehensive understanding of the nervous system and how it reacts to injury. ...
Investigating the contribution of the basal ganglia in the selective gating of saccade initiation
An important function of the brain is to inhibit irrelevant behaviors. This thesis examines the role of the basal ganglia in response suppression using saccadic eye movements as a model of behavior. We measured the activity ...
