The researchers first set out to determine whether NM-MRI could accurately detect regional variations in the concentration of neuromelanin in those without neurodegeneration of the substantia nigra. To examine the detection ability of NM-MRI, the researchers compared NM-MRI measurements of neuromelanin to chemical measurements of neuromelanin in post-mortem brain tissue.
Pathologic examination reveals characteristic rust-brown discoloration of the globus pallidus and substantia nigra pars reticularis due to iron deposition and a reduction in the size of the caudate nuclei, substantia nigra, and tegmentum as well as generalized atrophy of the brain.

Studies using systemic injection [26] or ventricular infusion of LPS [24] in rodents have shown accumulation of activated microglia in various brain nuclei mainly in the substantia nigra, thus suggesting that LPS can be useful to study neurodegeneration as a model of Parkinson's disease [24, 25].
As a novel neuroimaging technology, transcranial sonography (TCS) of PD patients reveals characteristic substantia nigra (SN) hyperechogenicity, which may be related to iron accumulation and functional impairment of nigrostriatal pathways.[sup][5],[6] TCS has primarily been used to analyze motor symptoms in PD patients.[sup][7],[8] Nevertheless, the limited cognitive assessment available from PD patients with TCS data demonstrated that the width of the third ventricle (TV) in PDD patients was larger than in PD patients.[sup][9],[10],[11],[12] However, these data have not been validated in the Chinese population.
Aims and Objectives: The aims of this research are to develop and test a peel-off mask gel prepared from black mulberries (Morus nigra) extracts, which has antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus epidermidis and Propionibacterium acnes.
