• neurons
  • PPBP dose-dependently protected neurons in putamen at 4 days of recovery from H-I. Immunoblots of putamen extracts at 3 h of recovery showed that PPBP decreased H-I-induced recruitment of nNOS in the membrane fraction and reduced the association of nNOS with NMDA receptor NR2 subunit.

  • striatal
  • In line with the hypothesis that functional connectivity between the midbrain and the putamen reflects the integrity of the dopaminergic neurotransmitter system, putamen-midbrain functional connectivity was significantly correlated with striatal DAT availability even after stringent control for effects of head motion.

  • cerebral
  • Hypercapnic cerebral blood flow responses in the putamen levodopa dissociation region. (jci.org)
  • Globally normalized cerebral blood flow (CBF) values were measured in the unmedicated state under normocapnic (NC) and hypercapnic (HC) conditions in the area of dissociated vasomotor and metabolic levodopa responses previously described in the posterior putamen (see Results). (jci.org)
  • The caudate works with the putamen to receive the input from cerebral cortex. (wikipedia.org)
  • functional
  • Topographical organization of the putamen combines the following elements: anterior-to-posterior functional and somatotopic gradients, lateral-to-medial functional and somatotopic gradients, diffuse terminal output, patchy localized terminal output, segregated terminals from adjacent regions, finely interdigiated terminals from distal cortical regions in a seemingly overlapping fashion.

  • levels
  • However, acutely administered fluoxetine (2.5, 5.0, or 10.0 mg/kg, i.p.) failed to elevate extracellular levels of DA, or its metabolites in the NAc or caudate-putamen (CP). (drugawareness.org)
