    Immunobiology of neural transplants and functional incorporation of grafted dopamine neurons.Jeffrey B. Blount, Takeshi Kondoh, Lisa L. Pundt, John Conrad, Elizabeth M. Jansen & Walter C. Low - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (1):48-49.
    In contrast to the views put forth by Stein & Glasier, we support the use of inbred strains of rodents in studies of the immunobiology of neural transplants. Inbred strains demonstrate homology of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC). Virtually all experimental work in transplantation immunology is performed using inbred strains, yet very few published studies of immune rejection in intracerebral grafts have used inbred animals.

    Gene therapy for neurodegenerative disorders and malignant brain tumors.Lan Chiang, Eric P. Flores, Dennis Y. Wen, Walter A. Hall & Walter C. Low - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (1):52-53.
    Gene therapy approaches have great promise in the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders and malignant brain tumors. Neuwelt et al. review available viral-mediated gene therapy methods and their blood-brain-barrier (BBB) disruption delivery technique, briefly mentioning nonviral mediated gene therapy methods. This commentary discussed the BBB disruption delivery technique, viral and nonviral mediated gene therapy approaches to Parkinson's disease, and the potential use of antisense oligo to suppress malignant brain tumors.

    Intraretrosplenial grafts of cholinergic neurons and spatial memory function.Ying J. Li & Walter C. Low - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (1):61-62.
    The transplantation of cholinergic neurons into the hippocampal formation has been well characterized. We describe our studies on the effects of cholinergic transplants in the retrosplenial cortex. These transplants were capable of ameliorating spatial navigation deficits in rats with septohippocampal lesions. In addition, we provide evidence for the modulation of transplanted neurons by the host brain.
