Sagittal Plane Kinematic Gait Analysis in C57BL/6 Mice Subjected to MOG35-55 Induced Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis Maximillian DJ Fiander*1, Matthew AJ Chedrawe*1, Anna-Claire Lamport1, Turgay Akay2, George S Robertson1,3 1Pharmacology, Dalhousie University, 2Medical Neuroscience, Dalhousie University, 3Psychiatry, Dalhousie University Kinematic gait analysis in the sagittal plane yields highly precise information about how movement is executed. We describe the application of these techniques to identify gait deficits for mice subjected to autoimmune-mediated demyelination. These methods may also be used to characterize gait deficits for other mouse models featuring impaired locomotion.

Human Brain Chemokine and Cytokine Expression in Sepsis: A Report of Three Cases The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences. Le Journal Canadien Des Sciences Neurologiques. | Pubmed ID: 27832827 Sepsis is a systemic response to infection that can affect brain function by inducing resident cells (including astrocytes and microglia) to generate brain chemokines and cytokines. However, there are few studies on the human brain. Since this information may shed further light on pathogenesis, our study objective was to measure the expression of 36 chemokines and cytokines in autopsied brain from 3 cases of sepsis and 10 controls, and to relate this to astrocyte and microglial activation.
