Heat-Induced Antigen Retrieval: An Effective Method to Detect and Identify Progenitor Cell Types during Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis Syed M.Q. Hussaini*1, Heechul Jun*1, Chang Hoon Cho1, Hyo Jin Kim1, Woon Ryoung Kim2, Mi-Hyeon Jang1,3 1Department of Neurologic Surgery, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, 2Department of Anatomy, Korea University College of Medicine, 3Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine During adult hippocampal neurogenesis, a distinct set of genetic markers are expressed when a quiescent neural stem cell sequentially progresses and develops into a functionally integrated neuron in the circuit. Using heat-induced antigen retrieval, progenitor cell types that are otherwise difficult to detect are identified with improved effectiveness.
MPI CyberMotion Simulator: Implementation of a Novel Motion Simulator to Investigate Multisensory Path Integration in Three Dimensions Michael Barnett-Cowan1, Tobias Meilinger1, Manuel Vidal2, Harald Teufel1, Heinrich H. Bülthoff1,3 1Department of Human Perception, Cognition and Action, Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, 2Laboratoire de Physiologie de la Perception et de l'Action, Collège de France - CNRS, 3Department of Brain and Cognitive Engineering, Korea University An efficient way to gain insight into how humans navigate themselves in three dimensions is described. The method takes advantage of a motion simulator capable of moving observers in ways unattainable by traditional simulators. Results confirm that movement in the horizontal plane is underestimated, while vertical movement is overestimated.
Use of a Hanging-weight System for Isolated Renal Artery Occlusion Almut Grenz1, Julee H. Hong1, Alexander Badulak1, Douglas Ridyard1, Timothy Luebbert2, Jae-Hwan Kim3, Holger K. Eltzschig1 1Department of Anesthesiology, University of Colorado, 2School of Medicine, University of Colorado, 3Department of Anesthesiology, Korea University College of Medicine A precise murine model for acute kidney injury (AKI) due to ischemia is an important tool to investigate acute kidney injury and possibly find therapeutic tools to treat renal injury. The hanging weight system offers a tool for immediate and reliable renal artery occlusion and reperfusion without causing renal congestion.
