Semi-quantitative Assessment Using [18F]FDG Tracer in Patients with Severe Brain Injury Tomohiro Yamaki1,2, Shinji Onodera2, Tomoki Uchida2, Yoshihiro Ozaki2, Kazuaki Yokoyama3, Haruko Henmi2, Mizuho Kamezawa2, Miyoko Hayakawa2, Daisuke Itou1, Nobuo Oka1,2, Masaru Odaki1, Yasuo Iwadate4, Shigeki Kobayashi1 1 [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography-computed tomography is useful for studying glucose metabolism related to brain function. Here, we present a protocol for an [18F]FDG tracer set-up and semiquantitative assessment of the region-of-interest analysis for targeted brain areas associated with clinical manifestations in patients with severe traumatic brain injury.
A Method for Obtaining Serial Ultrathin Sections of Microorganisms in Transmission Electron Microscopy Masashi Yamaguchi1, Hiroji Chibana1 1Medical Mycology Research Center, Chiba University This study presents reliable and easy procedures for obtaining serial ultrathin sections of a microorganism without expensive equipment in transmission electron microscopy.
Field Experiments of Pollination Ecology: The Case of Lycoris sanguinea var. sanguinea Futa Yamaji1, Takeshi A. Ohsawa1 1Department of Biology, Chiba University To reveal the pollinator effectiveness of a given plant species, multiple methods of field experiments have been developed. This study demonstrates the basic methods of field experiments for pollination ecology using the case study of Lycoris sanguinea var. sanguinea and the novel pollination mechanism, breaking-bud pollination.
