A biological blueprint for the axons of superficial layer pyramidal cells in cat primary visual cortex

Pyramidal cells in the superficial layers of neocortex of higher mammals form a lateral network of axon clusters known as the ‘daisy’ network. The role of these axon clusters remains speculative and we still lack a comprehensive quantitative description of the single neurons forming the daisy or their heterogeneity. We filled intracellularly 50 superficial layer pyramidal neurons ...

Experimental and numerical investigations regarding laser drop on demand jetting of Cu alloys

Active noise reduction, structural health monitoring and energy harvesting are possible applications of active structure components. An integration of piezoceramic modules into casted Al-structures can be defined as a long term goal to achieve high functional integration and thus to address lightweight construction. Since the liquidus temperature of standard electronic solder is ...

Synaptic connections formed by patchy projections of pyramidal cells in the superficial layers of cat visual cortex

The present study is the first to describe quantitatively the patterns of synaptic connections made by the patchy network of pyramidal cell axons in the superficial layers of cat V1 in relation to the orientation map. Intrinsic signal imaging of the orientation map was combined with 3D morphological reconstructions of physiologically-characterized neurons at light and electron ...

The “Guidewire-Coil”-Technique to prevent retrograde stone migration of ureteric calculi during intracorporeal lithothripsy

Background Stone retropulsion represents a challenge for intracorporeal lithotripsy of ureteral calculi. The consequences are an increased duration and cost of surgery as well as decreased stone-free rates. The use of additional tools to prevent proximal stone migration entails further costs and risks for ureteral injuries. We present the simple technique of using a coil of the ...

Long-term experience of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for refractory radio- or chemotherapy-induced haemorrhagic cystitis

Background Radiotherapy and cyclophosphamide-induced haemorrhagic cystitis are rare but severe complications occurring in 3–6% of patients. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for haematuria not responding to conventional management. Only very few data exist for long-term follow-up after HBOT. Methods We retrospectively reviewed 15 ...

Biomarkers

Introduction and Aims: The stratification of chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, to identify those at high risk of poor outcomes, requires tests that individually assess kidney function, kidney injury and systemic inflammation. Due to the limitations of the individual markers, here we evaluate a marker of immune status and kidney function, combined polyclonal serum free light ...
