AbstractWe explored the association between HIV-related stigma and experiences of intimate partner violence (IPV) and depression with viral load suppression, and medication and visit adherence in postpartum women receiving lifelong antiretroviral therapy (ART) (N  = 200).

Publication date: Available online 3 December 2019Source: Neuroscience LettersAuthor(s): Yan-Hai Li, Youjun Li, Liang Zheng, Jue WangAbstractMedial vestibular nucleus (MVN) neurons are involved in the regulation of eye movements to endure the stability of the image during head movement, and play a critical role in plasticity of the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) during the juvenile period. We have previously shown that the long-term depression (LTD) of synaptic transmission was induced by high frequency stimulation (HFS) and blocked by N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist D-APV at the vestibular afferent synapses...
