Hide Abstract
Although human spatial cognition is at the focus of intense research efforts, experimental evidence on how search strategies differ among age and gender groups remains elusive. To address this problem, we investigated the interaction between age, sex, and strategy usage within a novel virtual water maze-like procedure (VWM). We studied 28 young adults 20-29 years (14 males) and 30 middle-aged adults 50-59 years (15 males). Younger age groups outperformed older groups with respect to place learning. We also observed a moderate sex effect, with males outperforming females. Unbiased classification of human search behavior within this paradigm was done by means of an exploratory method using sparse non-negative matrix factorization (SNMF) and a parameter-based algorithm as an a priori classifier. Analyses of search behavior with the SNMF and the parameter-based method showed that the older group relied on less efficient search strategies, but females did not drop so dramatically. Place learning was related to the adaptation of elaborated search strategies. Participants using place-directed strategies obtained the highest score on place learning, and deterioration of place learning in the elderly was due to the use of less efficient non-specific strategies. A high convergence of the SNMF and the parameter-based classifications could be shown. Furthermore, the SNMF classification was cross validated with the traditional eyeballing method. As a result of this analysis, we conclude that SNMF is a robust exploratory method for the classification of search behavior in water maze procedures.

Vascular endothelial growth factor-stimulated cerebral microvascular endothelial cells mediate the recruitment of neural stem cells to the neurovascular niche.

Hide Abstract
Endogenous and transplanted neural stem cells (NSC) are highly migratory and display a unique tropism for areas of neuro-pathology. However, signals controlling NSC motility in health and disease are still ill-defined. NSC appear to be intimately associated with the cerebral vasculature and angiogenesis is a hallmark of many neurological disorders. This has led us to investigate the influence of quiescent and angiogenically active human endothelial cells on human NSC migration. In vivo we observed frequent perivascular accumulation of human NSC in the proximity of cerebral microvessels upon induction of angiogenesis by cerebral infusion of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) into the murine brain. We analyzed the in vitro effects of conditioned media from human endothelial cells before and after angiogenic stimulation with VEGF on the migration of human NSC in vitro. Non-stimulated endothelial cells induced a moderate chemotactic migration that was significantly enhanced after angiogenic activation by VEGF. In order to identify cytokines that may function as stimulators of NSC chemotaxis, we screened endothelial cell-conditioned media for the expression of 120 different cytokines. We identified PDGF-BB, RANTES, I-TAC, NAP-2, GROalpha, Ang-2, and M-CSF as endothelial cell-released chemoattractants for human NSC in vitro. VEGF-stimulated cerebral microvascular endothelial cells secreted higher levels of Ang-2 and GROalpha, which in part were responsible for the enhanced chemoattraction of NSC. Our findings support the hypothesis that the angiogenically active microvasculature modulates the local guidance of NSC through endothelial cell-derived chemoattractants.

Cotrel-dubousset instrumentation for the correction of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Long-term results with an unexpected high revision rate.
Scoliosis
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
For many years, the CD instrumentation has been regarded as the standard device for the surgical correction of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Nevertheless, scientific long-term results on this procedure are rare. Therefore, we conducted a retrospective follow-up study of patients treated for AIS with CD instrumentation and spondylodesis.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
