06:24, 28 December 2007 NMDA receptor.jpg (file) NMDA_receptor.jpg 67 KB {{Image notes |Description=Activation (i.e., excitation) occurs when either glutamate (Glu) or N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) and glycine (Gly) bind to the receptor molecule. A channel within the receptor complex enables molecules to cross the cell membrane. Magnesium (Mg) blocks this channel. When Mg is removed from the channel and the receptor is activated, calcium (Ca++) and sodium (Na+) ions enter the cell and potassium ions (K+) leave. MK-801 prevents the flow of ions across the membrane by binding to a site within the ion channel, thereby blocking NMDA receptor function and protecting the cell against excess activation (i.e., excitotoxicity). |Author= J.D.

05:48, 28 December 2007 Mri alcohol.gif (file) Mri_alcohol.gif 88 KB {{Image notes |Description=Images displayed in the coronal orientation from MRI and DTI studies of a 61-year-old healthy man (upper images) and a 60-year-old alcoholic man (lower images). The high-resolution MRI slices are at the same locations as the fractional anisotropy images of the DTI panels. Note on the MRI the thinner corpus callosum displaced upward by enlarged ventricles and, on the DTI, less well delineated white matter tracts in the alcoholic man compared with the healthy man. |Author= M.

05:31, 28 December 2007 Fmri visual.jpg (file) Fmri_visual.jpg 43 KB {{Image notes |Description=3-D fMRI map of regions in the brain that exhibit blood flow changes in response to visual stimulation. Scientists are using powerful MRI machines which allow, noninvasively, for the localization and visualization of active brain regions. Functional MRI (fMRI), a technique that measures small and localized blood flow changes that follow increase in neuronal activity in the brain, was done on a ultra-high field magnet (9.4 Tesla) using high spatial resolution (0.15 x 0.15 mm). The image shows in great detail a 3-D fMRI map of regions in the visual cortex that exhibit larger blood flow changes in response to visual stimulation. The functional map is overlaid on a high resolution anatomical image. |Author=Dr. Noam Harel, University of Minnesota |Date=Approx. 2005 |Source= |Country first published in=United States |Copyright holder=Dr. Noam Harel, National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. |Notes= |Other versions=}} 1
05:24, 28 December 2007 Fmri audio.jpg (file) Fmri_audio.jpg 52 KB {{Image notes |Description=Computer-generated image of a human brain shows activation in response to various sound frequencies. In this computer-generated image of a human brain, surface convolutions have been flattened out, allowing scientists to more accurately measure the brain's geometric and anatomical properties. The brightly colored regions show activation of the primary auditory cortex in response to various sound frequencies. To obtain the image, researchers used ultrahigh-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with a magnetic field strength of 7 tesla, which provides highly detailed information about brain structure and function. |Author=Dr. Kamil Ugurbil, University of Minnesota. |Date= |Source= |Country first published in=United States |Copyright holder=Dr. Kamil Ugurbil (National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering) |Notes= |Other versions=}} 1
