No degeneration was detected in organ of corti, spiral ganglion, and stria vascularis (Table 4).
Previous studies have shown GLUT-1, GLUT-3, GLUT-4, GLUT-5, GLUT-8, GLUT-10, and GLUT-12 expressions in both the stria vascularis and the spiral ligament [14].
The rod made by the Randcastle SFEM three mixer screw (also used in the polymer mixing study above) was so fine that it showed no stria of black, even at 125 times magnification.
Upon exiting the trail, we came upon patches of Lygomusotima stria moths feeding on L.

Twentieth-century modernism is still with us, and Evan C Paul's work Stria represents that style.
Scutellum width about 0.15 the width of each elytron; 1.5 wider than long; concave, with large and elevated tooth on each lateroposterior side; Each elytron twice as long as wide, each with base of striae 3-4 closer than others, base of 2nd stria with small denticle and base of striae 3-4 with larger denticles; striae with coarse punctations connected by deep row; humerus rugouse (Fig.
These neurons reside in a brain locale called the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis, or BNST.
Stuber focused on one cell type-gaba neurons in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis, or BNST, which is an outcropping of the amygdala, the part of the brain associated with emotion.
TEHRAN (FNA)- A new study suggested that faulty wiring in bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) cells could interfere with hunger or satiety cues and contribute to human eating disorders, leading people to eat even when they are full or to avoid food when they are hungry.
Small scallops deposited an average of 0.55 stria per day, 0.42 stria per day, and 0.34 stria per day, respectively, during the 2-, 4-, and 6-wk experiments, whereas large scallops had a lower frequency of stria formation (0.20 stria per day, 0.18 stria per day, and 0.17 stria per day, respectively).
In particular, data in rodents suggest that global serotonin depletion may specifically increase long-duration bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST)-mediated aversive responses (ie, anxiety), but not short-duration BNST-independent responses (ie, fear).
In contrast to normoxia it must be assumed for any kind of hypoxia that there will be a stress situation for the inner ear when the receptor cells are exposed to noise since hearing is an energy-consuming process with more energy needed at high noise levels and the reservoir of energy-rich phosphates (ATP) of the cells of the stria vascularis is limited (1).
