• MRI is the imaging study of choice in patients with olivopontocerebellar atrophy (OPCA) because CT scanning does not provide adequate resolution of the pons and cerebellum. (medscape.com)
  • MRI also permits visualization of pontine atrophy, which distinguishes OPCA from other forms of genetic ataxias, and presentations of multiple system atrophy that do not yet heavily involve the pons. (medscape.com)

  • During this time, Fleischmann and Pons described their experiments as generating considerable "excess energy", in the sense that it could not be explained by chemical reactions alone. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fleischmann and Pons, however, pressured by the University of Utah, which wanted to establish priority on the discovery, broke their apparent agreement, submitting their paper to the Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry on 11 March, and disclosing their work via a press release and press conference on 23 March.

  • I do find it interesting that Andrea Rossi, while giving credit to Pons and Fleischmann foropeningg a new field of study, seems to not to believe that their process was valid. (e-catworld.com)
  • As for duplicating the Pons and Fleischmann results, we now have a much better understanding of the phenomenon, and the list of prerequisite conditions is rather lengthy. (e-catworld.com)

  • The structure of basilar part is the same at all levels of pons, but the structure of tegmental part fluctuates drastically in the upper and lower parts of the pons. (earthslab.com)
  • The functions of the pons include sensory roles in the hearing, equilibrium, taste, facial sensations such as touch and pain, roles in eye movement, chewing, facial expressions, swallowing, and the discharge of saliva and tears. (anatomyinfo.com)
  • The dorsal pons has long been implicated in the generation of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, but the underlying circuit mechanisms remain poorly understood. (nature.com)
  • There are multiple cell types in the dorsal pons, including cholinergic, monoaminergic, GABAergic and glutamatergic neurons. (nature.com)
  • An important unresolved question is whether neurons with different functional properties are spatially intermingled or segregated into different subregions of the dorsal pons. (nature.com)
  • Many glutamatergic neurons are maximally active during REM sleep, and their REM selectivity is organized along the mediolateral axis in the dorsal pons. (nature.com)
  • To image each cell type, we injected adeno-associated virus (AAV) into the dorsal pons (in or near the LDT) of GAD2-IRES - or VGLUT2-IRES-Cre mice for Cre-inducible expression of the Ca 2+ indicator GCaMP6s (ref. 24 ). (nature.com)
