Intracerebral Injection of Streptozotocin to Model Alzheimer Disease in Rats
Animal models have promoted meaningful contribution to science including Alzheimer’s disease (AD) research. Several animal models for AD have been used, most of them related to genetic mutations observed in familial AD. However, sporadic form of AD, ...

Optical Stimulation and Electrophysiological Analysis of Regenerating Peripheral Axons
Authors:  Patricia J. Ward and Arthur W. English, date: 06/20/2019, view: 873, Q&A: 0
Although axons in the peripheral nervous system can regenerate, functional recovery after nerve injuries is poor. Activity-based therapies, such as exercise and electrical stimulation, enhance the regeneration of cut peripheral axons. Despite their ...
