Chronic imaging of cortical blood flow using Multi-Exposure Speckle Imaging

… Temperature was maintained at 37°C with a feedback temperature control system (FHC Bowdoin, ME, USA) and arterial oxygen saturation was monitored via pulse oximetry (MouseOx; Starr Life Sciences Corp., Oakmont, PA, USA). … Chronic imaging of cerebral blood flow (CBF) is an important tool for investigating vascular remodeling after injury such as stroke. Although […]

Evolution of neuronal and astroglial disruption in the peri-contusional cortex of mice revealed by in vivo two-photon imaging

… Blood oxygen saturation level was assessed with MouseOx® pulse oximeter (STARR Life Sciences) mounted on the left thigh to ensure O 2 saturation remained >90% for the duration of imaging, indicating that mice were respiring properly. … In traumatic brain injury mechanical forces applied to the cranium and brain cause irreversible primary neuronal and […]

Transient hypercapnia reveals an underlying cerebrovascular pathology in a murine model for HIV-1 associated neuroinflammation: role of NO-cGMP signaling and normalization by inhibition of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase-5

.. The oxygen saturation and heart rate (HR) were continuously monitored using MouseOx (Harvard Apparatus, Starr Life Science Corporation, Holliston, MA, USA). Body temperature was monitored with a rectal probe. Cerebrovascular response to hypercapnia. … Background Cerebral blood flow (CBF) is known to be dysregulated in persons with human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1), for uncertain […]
