      There is evidence for functional GABA(C) receptors in the retina, spinal cord, superior colliculus, pituitary and gastrointestinal tract. Given the lower abundance and less widespread distribution of GABA(C) receptors in the CNS compared to GABA(A) receptors, GABA(C) receptors may be a more selective drug target than GABA(A) receptors. Steroid effects on glial cells: detrimental or protective for spinal cord function? / by Alejandro F. de Nicola [and others] --Sex steroid regulation of microglial cell activation: relevance to multiple sclerosis / by Paul D.

    When the locomotor-like activity was induced by applying neuroactive drugs selectively over the lumbar spinal cord, light stimulation (continuous illumination for 5–10 s, – nm) of V2a brainstem neurons did not significantly alter the ongoing locomotor frequency (A, C). The effect of low doses of urethane on three phases of spinal seizures evoked by sudden cooling (SSSC) of toad isolated spinal cord was studied. In control toads, SSSC began with a latency of 91[plus minus]3 sec exhibiting brief tremors, followed by clonic muscle contractions and finally reaching a .

    Taking these benefits into consideration, nanotechnology has immense potential such as in the field of neuromolecular diagnostics, discovery of neurodegenerative markers, nano-enabled drug delivery and neuroactive discovery with implications reaching to the prevention, management and treatment of neurological disorders. The pineal gland is the only singular organ in the brain and is located near the upper end of the spinal cord, which ends or terminates in the oldest anatomical region in the brain. Taoists call the center of the brain between the pineal and the pituitary "the Crystal Palace.".

The ventral horn of the spinal cord is an important structure for the induction of immobility. Thus, the potentially immobilizing effects of a newly designed drug can be estimated from its depressant effect on neuronal network activity in cultured spinal slices.

[Lauro S Halstead; Jacqueline Claus-Walker]. Comorbidity between major depressive disorder (MDD), anxiety (generalized anxiety, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder) and pain is a major complicating factor in the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders.

Although numerous neurotransmitters and/or neuromodulators may be involved, abnormalities in the GABAergic and gCited by: 8. At the caudal tip of the spinal cord in the filum terminale, one opening (rat) or several openings (guinea pig, rabbit) (Fig (Fig1) 1) allow the CSF to access the subarachnoid space.

SCI is related to time– and region–specific changes of the BBB function.

Tumor necrosis factor–a (TNF–α), a cytokine with dual actions in regeneration of the spinal cord, has a slow basal influx into the brain and spinal cord.

A spinal cord injury can occur as a result of trauma, malignancy or other clinical syndromes and describes involvement/damage to the actual spinal cord. It can result in a pattern of disruption of motor and sensory pathways between the brain and the rest of body depending on where the damage occurs.

Treatment with the serotonergic “neurotoxins” 5,6- or 5,7-di-hydroxytryptamine results in an almost complete loss of 5-HT, TRH and SP immunoreactive fibers in the ventral spinal cord (Björklund et al., ; Johansson et al., ; Gilbert et al., ; Marsden et al., ) although findings suggesting a limited scope of coexistence only.

The muscles and nerves of the urinary system work together to hold and release urine at the right time. Nerves carry messages between the bladder and the spinal cord and brain.

The messages tell the muscles of the bladder to either tighten or release. In neurogenic bladder, these nerves don’t work the way they should.

38, No. 10 Insights into Rapid Modulation of Neuroplasticity by Brain Estrogens. Spinal cord neurones, mainly located in the intermediolateral cell column (IML) and in the intermediomedial gray matter (IMM), responded to the application of oxytocin with either activation (48%) or inhibition (52%).

The authors interpreted this complex response to oxytocin as the activation of inhibitory interneurones acting on second order. Neurons in these brain regions are potentially critical targets for stimulation and/or drug therapy for these disorders.

Despite the widespread use of the intrathecal route for the administration of neuroactive agents, little is known about the penetration of these agents into the spinal cord.

Anesthetic Pharmacology. 2nd edition Attenuated sensitivity to neuroactive steroids in gamma-aminobutyrate type A receptor delta subunit Spinal cord motoneuron excitability during isoflurane and nitrous oxide anesthesia.

Induction of anesthesia is facilitated by diffusion of an inhaled anesthetic drug into the brain and spinal cord. Diffusion throughout the body proceeds until the drug's partial pressure within the various tissues is equivalent to the partial pressure of the drug within the lungs.

Healthcare providers can control the rate of anesthesia induction and final tissue concentrations of the. Intended for elementary and secondary school students and teachers who are interested in learning about the nervous system and brain with hands on activities, experiments and information.

The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) system provides nutrients to and removes waste products from the brain. Recent findings suggest, however, that in addition, the CSF contains message molecules in the form of actively released neuroactive substances.

The concentrations of these vary between locations, suggesting they are important for the changes in brain activity that underlie different brain.

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of memantine on overactive detrusor (OAD) 15 days after spinal cord injury (SCI) in rats. Twenty-eight adult Wistar rats were used in this study.

Fourteen animals served as normal controls, while 14 underwent spinal cord transection (clip compression technique) at the 10th thoracic vertebra.

Chronic Spinal Cord Injury Pain. Chronic pain following spinal cord injury (SCI) is estimated to occur in 65% to 81% of SCI patients, wherein about one third of patients rate it as severe. 2, 7 The addition of intractable pain to deficits in voluntary motor functions and autonomic dysfunction following SCI severely diminishes patient social and psychologic well-being.

8 In order to improve.If the spinal cord ends at L1, how can lumbar punctures be done at L4? How far do the meninges continue after the end of the spinal cord?

Answer: The purpose of the lumbar puncture is to collect cerebrospinal fluid, not to enter tissue of the spinal cord. Therefore, it is much safer to insert the needle below the end of the spinal cord.
