Eur J Oral Sci 2018 Dec 20;126(6):466-475. Epub 2018 Oct 20.

State Key Laboratory of Military Stomatology & National Clinical Research Center for Oral Diseases & Shaanxi International Joint Research Center for Oral Diseases, Department of Oral Anatomy and Physiology, School of Stomatology, The Fourth Military Medical University, Xi'an, China.

Unilateral anterior crossbite (UAC) has been demonstrated to cause masseter hyperactivity via the periodontal trigeminal mesencephalic nucleus (Vme)-trigeminal motor nucleus circuit. Here, we studied activation of motor neurons of the facial nucleus (VII), hypoglossal nucleus (XII), nucleus ambiguus (Amb), and spinal nucleus of the accessory nerve (SNA) in rats with UAC via their similar connections with Vme. An anterograde tracer, biotinylated dextran amine (BDA), was injected into the Vme to identify the central axon terminals around the motor neurons of VII, XII, Amb, and SNA. Read More

Radiographics 2018 Sep-Oct;38(5):1498-1513

From the Departments of Radiology (A.C., R.S.Q., J.W.), Orthopaedic Surgery (A.C.), Neurological Surgery (J.W.), Otolaryngology (L.L.M.), Plastic Surgery (B.A.), Surgery (J.R.Z.), and Neurology and Neurotherapeutics (J.R.Z.), University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, 5323 Harry Hines Blvd, Dallas, TX 75390-9178; and Department of Diagnostic Radiology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, Ark (G.B., V.W.).

Cranial nerve disease outside the skull base is a common cause of facial and/or neck pain, which causes significant disability for patients and frustration for clinicians. Neuropathy in this region can be traumatic, idiopathic, or iatrogenic secondary to dental and surgical procedures. MR neurography is a modification of conventional MRI techniques dedicated to evaluation of peripheral nerves and is being increasingly used for imaging of peripheral neuropathies at various sites in the body.

Visualization of the Membranous Labyrinth and Nerve Fiber Pathways in Human and Animal Inner Ears Using MicroCT Imaging.

Front Neurosci 2018 31;12:501. Epub 2018 Jul 31.

VetImaging, VetCore Facility for Research, University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna, Austria.

Design and implantation of bionic implants for restoring impaired hair cell function relies on accurate knowledge about the microanatomy and nerve fiber pathways of the human inner ear and its variation. Non-destructive isotropic imaging of soft tissues of the inner ear with lab-based microscopic X-ray computed tomography (microCT) offers high resolution but requires contrast enhancement using compounds with high X-ray attenuation. We evaluated different contrast enhancement techniques in mice, cat, and human temporal bones to differentially visualize the membranous labyrinth, sensory epithelia, and their innervating nerves together with the facial nerve and middle ear.
