HRP was injected in the flocculonodular lobe and the paraflocculus in the rabbit to determine the areas of the inferior olive which project onto these cerebellar regions. Following injections in the flocculus labeled cells occurred in the dorsal cap and the rostralmost tip of the medial accessory olive. Following injections in the nodulus labeled cells were likewise found in the dorsal cap, but in addition in the rostralmost part of the dorsomedial cell column and the adjoining part of the medial accessory olive. Injections in the dorsal paraflocculus gave rise to labeling in the rostrolateral part of the medial accessory olive, while injections in the ventral paraflocculus resulted in labeling in the principal olive, mainly in the lateral part of the ventral lamella. Injections in the lateral third of the dentate nucleus gave rise to labeling mainly in the dorsal lamella of the principal olive. The results are discussed with reference to those obtained by previous authors. There are both similarities and discrepancies. It appears from what is known of afferents from areas mediating visual impulses to the inferior olive that the olivary areas projecting onto the flocculonodular lobe, and possibly the dorsal paraflocculus, may m...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Autism: Motor Learning

A common feature of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the impairment of motor control and learning, consistent with perturbation in cerebellar function. Find the latest research on ASD and motor learning here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration

Protein Localization in Disease & Therapy

Localization of proteins is critical for ensuring the correct location for physiological functioning. If an error occurs, diseases such as cardiovascular, neurodegenerative disorders and cancers can present. Therapies are being explored to target this mislocalization. Here is the latest research on protein localization in disease and therapy.

Genetic Screens in Bacteria

Genetic screens can provide important information on gene function as well as the molecular events that underlie a biological process or pathway. Here is the latest research on genetic screens in bacteria.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.
