    Spinal Cord Preparation from Adult Red-eared Turtles for Electrophysiological Recordings during Motor Activity
    Authors:  Peter C Petersen and Rune W Berg , date: 07/05/2017, view: 5494, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Although it is known that the generation of movements is performed to a large extent in neuronal circuits located in the spinal cord, the involved mechanisms are still unclear. The turtle as a model system for investigating spinal motor activity has advantages, which far exceeds those of model systems using other animals. The high resistance to ...
    Peripheral Nerve Injury: a Mouse Model of Neuropathic Pain
    Authors:  Takahiro Masuda, Yuta Kohro, Kazuhide Inoue and Makoto Tsuda, date: 05/05/2017, view: 5485, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Neuropathic pain is one of the highly debilitating chronic pain conditions, for which, currently, there is no therapeutic treatment. In order to reveal the underlying mechanism for neuropathic pain, various animal models have been established (Burma et al., 2016). This protocol describes how to prepare spinal nerve injury model (Kim and ...
    In vitro Brainstem-spinal Cord Preparation from Newborn Rat
    Authors:  Jean-Patrick Le Gal, Angelo Nicolosi, Laurent Juvin and Didier Morin, date: 11/20/2016, view: 4624, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The brainstem-spinal cord preparation of newborn rat contains neural networks able to produce motor output in absence of sensory feedback. These neural structures, commonly called central pattern generators (CPGs), are involved in many vital functions such as respiration (Morin and Viala, 2002; Giraudin et al., 2008) or locomotion (Juvin ...
