KU ScholarWorks is the digital repository of the University of Kansas. It contains scholarly work created by KU faculty, staff and students, as well as material from the University Archives. KU ScholarWorks makes important research and historical items available to a wider audience and helps assure their long-term preservation.

On February 11, 2010 the KU Faculty Senate passed a revised Open Access policy granting the University permission to deposit a copy of their scholarly work in an open access repository-- KU ScholarWorks. For more about the policy, "how to" documents, Q&A, addenda and more, please visit Open Access @ KU.

  • Quantification of Reserve Pool Dopamine in Methionine Sulfoxide Reductase A Null Mice 

    Ortiz, Andrea N.; Oien, Derek B.; Moskovitz, Jackob; Johnson, Michael A. (Elsevier, 2011-03-17)
    Methionine sulfoxide reductase A knockout (MsrA−/−) mice, which serve as a potential model for neurodegeneration, suffer from increased oxidative stress and have previously been found to have chronically elevated brain ...
  • Insulin Resistance and Gray Matter Volume in Neurodegenerative Disease 

    Morris, J.K.; Vidoni, E.D.; Perea, R.D.; Rada, R.; Johnson, D.K.; Lyons, K.; Pahwa, R.; Burns, J.M.; Honea, R.A. (Elsevier, 2014-06-13)
    The goal of this study was to compare insulin resistance in aging and aging-related neurodegenerative diseases, and to determine the relationship between insulin resistance and gray matter volume (GMV) in each cohort using ...
  • Zyklophin, a short-acting kappa opioid antagonist, induces scratching in mice 

    DiMattio, K.M.; Yakovleva, T.V.; Aldrich, J.V.; Cowan, A.; Liu-Chen, L.Y. (Elsevier, 2014-03-20)
    It has been shown previously that norbinaltorphimine (norBNI) and 5΄-guanidinonaltrindole (5΄-GNTI), long-acting kappa opioid receptor (KOPR) antagonists, cause frenzied scratching in mice [1;2]. In the current study, we ...
  • Pragmatic inferences modulate N400 during sentence comprehension: evidence from picture-sentence verification 

    Hunt, Lamar III; Politzer-Ahles, Stephen; Gibson, Linzi; Minai, Utako; Fiorentino, Robert (Elsevier, 2013-02-08)
    The present study examines the online realization of pragmatic meaning using event-related potentials (ERPs). Participants read sentences including the English quantifier some, which has both a semantic meaning (at least ...
  • Impaired dopamine release and uptake in R6/1 Huntington's disease model mice 

    Ortiz, Andrea N.; Kurth, Benjamin J.; Osterhaus, Gregory L.; Johnson, Michael A. (Elsevier, 2011-03-29)
    Huntington’s disease (HD) is a progressive, neurodegenerative movement disorder. Here, we used fast-scan cyclic voltammetry to measure dopamine release and uptake in striatal brain slices from R6/1 HD model mice. Peak ...
