The human soft palate plays an important role in respiration, swallowing, and speech. These motor activities depend on reflexes mediated by sensory nerve endings. To date, the details of human sensory innervation to the soft palate have not been demonstrated. In this study, eight adult human whole-mount (soft palate-tongue-pharynx-larynx-upper esophagus) specimens were obtained from autopsy. Each specimen was bisected in the midline, forming two equal and symmetrical halves. Eight hemi-specimens were processed with Sihler's stain, a whole-mount nerve staining technique...

My concern in this presentation is with the falling standard of papers, particularly primary research articles, in the scientific and medical literature. Few of our younger generation of scientists (and many older ones) have never had specific training in how to write a good paper, and yet this is the major product of all research effort that has been done, perhaps over a year or more. This is a situation that has to be corrected by all institutions, universities and similar bodies, who need to introduce into the curriculum a course (not just a token lecture) that deals with the complexity of writing a lucid paper that is succinct and written with style...

Integrity in the pursuit of discovery through application of the scientific method and reporting the results is an obligation for each of us as scientists. We cannot let the value of science be diminished because discovering knowledge is vital to understand ourselves and our impacts on the earth. We support the value of science by our stewardship of integrity in the conduct, training, reporting, and proposing of scientific investigation. The players who have these responsibilities are authors, reviewers, editors, and readers...

Recent articles published in the popular press have highlighted how science can go wrong; alarmingly, when some labs have attempted to reproduce results of already published data from preclinical studies, they have reported being successful only 12%-25% of the time. Since there is a lack of consensus about the severity of this problem, this talk focuses on the magnitude and applicability of the problem of reproducibility and what journals can do to address it.

Advances in imaging technology and development have recently enabled high-resolution three-dimensional (3D) imaging of embryos and fetuses. Embryos and fetuses stored at the Congenital Anomaly Research Center (Kyoto Collection of Human Embryos, Kyoto, Japan) were imaged using multiple modalities including magnetic resonance imaging, episcopic fluorescence image capture, and X-ray computed tomography, both in absorption and phase-contrasted configurations. Using the acquired images, 3D computer graphics were generated and a movie was created to gain further insight into understanding the developmental process...

Three-dimensional (3D) analysis of the human embryonic and early-fetal period has been performed using digitized datasets obtained from the Kyoto Collection, in which the digital datasets play a primary role in research. Datasets include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) acquired with 1.5 T, 2.35 T, and 7 T magnet systems, phase-contrast X-ray computed tomography (CT), and digitized histological serial sections. Large, high-resolution datasets covering a broad range of developmental periods obtained with various methods of acquisition are key elements for the studies...

Magnetic resonance (MR) microscopy of chemically fixed human embryos performed in University of Tsukuba since 1999 to 2015 was reviewed. More than 1,000 chemically fixed human embryos stored in the Congenital Anomaly Research Center of Kyoto University were used throughout the MR microscopy project, which was divided into three terms. In the first term (1999-2005), 3D MR images of 1,204 embryo specimens were acquired with 128 × 128 × 256 voxels by a super-parallel MR microscope using a 2.35 T horizontal-bore superconducting magnet...

Four topics on normal and abnormal human prenatal development are briefly reviewed. These studies were made possible by using the Kyoto Collection of Human Embryos, the largest collection of human embryo specimens procured after therapeutic abortion. The topics discussed include: (1) variability of human embryo development and implications for clinical teratology, (2) abnormal development in human embryos and intrauterine fate of human conceptuses, (3) holoprosencephaly, and (4) maternal hyperthermia in early pregnancy and birth defects...

The increasing availability of developmental data on humans and great apes has become essential for furthering our understanding of human evolution. Although postnatal ontogeny is relatively well documented, our knowledge about variation of developmental patterns during the prenatal period among primate species remains lacking. There are various limitations to studying fetuses, but investigating the fetal period, directly or indirectly, has the potential to answer questions that are otherwise difficult to tackle with postnatal examination...

The Kyoto embryo collection was begun in 1961 by Dr. Hideo Nishimura. The collection has been continuously developed and currently contains over 44,000 human normal and abnormal specimens. Beginning online in 1997, the internet provided an opportunity to make embryos from the collection widely available for research and educational purposes (http://tiny.cc/Embryo). These embryonic development resources have been continuously published and available from that time until today. Published in Japanese as an Atlas of Embryonic Development...

Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is a genetically and phenotypically heterogeneous disorder involving developmental defects. HPE is a rare condition (1/10,000-20,000 newborns) but can be found as frequently as 1/250 among conceptions, suggesting that most HPE embryos are incompatible with postnatal life and result in spontaneous abortions during the first trimester of gestation. Beginning in 1961, the Kyoto University in Japan collected over 44,000 human conceptuses in collaboration with several hundred domestic obstetricians...

Rotenone is a common pesticide and has been reported as one of the risk factors for Parkinson disease. Rotenone can cause neuronal death or apoptosis through inducing oxidative injury and inhibiting mitochondrial function. As a natural polyphenolic compound, resveratrol possesses the antioxidant capacity and neuroprotective effect. However, the mechanism underlying the neuroprotective effect of resveratrol against rotenone-induced neurotoxicity remains elusive. Here, we treated PC12 cells with rotenone to induce neurotoxicity, and the neurotoxic cells were subjected to resveratrol treatment...

Neuropeptides AF (NPAF), FF (NPFF) and SF (NPSF) are RFamide neuropeptides known to be widely expressed in the mammalian central nervous system, where they fulfill a wide range of functions with pain modulation being the most prominent one. Recent evidence indicates that RFamides act as mediators in mast cell-sensory nerve communications related to allergic disease. Previous work by our group has shown that the expression levels of some members of the Mas-related gene receptor (Mrgpr) family in both enteric neurons and mucosal mast cells change during intestinal inflammation...

Breast cancer is the most common malignant tumor among women, and the incidence and mortality of breast cancer has rapidly increased in recent years. Studies have indicated that high mobility group A1 (HMGA1), an important member of the HMGA family, plays a role in the pathogenesis and progression of malignant tumors, including breast cancer. This study aims to evaluate the effect of HMGA1 in breast cancer. Interestingly, we found that HMGA1 expression was significantly higher in breast cancer tissues than in adenoma tissues and closely correlated with the clinical stage and histological grade in breast cancer patients...

The lunate-shaped caudal fin in lamnid sharks is a morphological specialization for their thunniform mode of locomotion, but its developmental process during gestation has been poorly investigated. Observations of 21 embryonic specimens of the white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) revealed that their caudal fin morphology drastically changes from strongly heterocercal to lunate-shaped through ontogeny. This morphological change involves (1) rapid elongation of the ventral lobe, (2) increased upward curvature of the vertebra within the caudal fin, and (3) formation of keels at both lateral sides of the caudal fin base...
