Another pair of steel needle electrodes was inserted into the median nerve of the left forepaw as stimulating electrodes.
Neurological function assessment was performed at 24 h after I/R as described previously on a five-point scale system as follows: 0, no neurological deficit; 1, failure to extend left forepaw fully; 2, circling to contralateral side; 3, falling towards contralateral side; 4, no spontaneous walking with a depressed level of consciousness (Longa et al.
The increase in the distance accorded with other reports that acute administration of 5-HT1A agonists caused serotonin syndrome represented by hyperactive behavior, flat body posture, and forepaw treading [30, 31].
0: no neurological deficit; 1: failure to extend the right forepaw fully; 2: circling to the right; 3: falling to the right; 4: no spontaneous walking with a depressed level of consciousness.
Bilateral forepaw grasp measures the ability to hold onto a 2 mm diameter steel rod, graded 0 for a rat with normal forepaw grasping behavior to 3 for a rat unable to grasp with the forepaws.
Using blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional MRI (fMRf) to determine neuronal activity following forepaw or hindpaw stimulation, MPC-treated animals showed a significant increase in neuronal activity compared with conlrols in both the infarct area (p less than 0.01) and in the primary motor cortex on the side of the infarct (p less than 0.05).
Using blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional MRI (fMRI) to determine neuronal activity following forepaw or hindpaw stimulation, MPC-treated animals showed a significant increase in neuronal activity compared with controls in both the infarct area (p less than 0.01) and in the primary motor cortex on the side of the infarct (p less than 0.05).
In 2006, the technique returned some limb control to rats with one paralyzed forepaw. And in 2011, it helped paralyzed rats regain the ability to breathe.
