Animals were treated via enema with an ECM hydrogel and the severity of colitis was determined by clinical and histologic criteria. Lamina propria cells were isolated and the production of inflammatory mediators was quantified. Mucosal permeability was assessed in vivo by administering TRITC dextran and in vitro using transepithelial electrical resistance (TEER).Results: ECM hydrogel therapy accelerated healing and improved outcome.
Electrodermal activity (EDA) recordings are widely used in experimental psychology to measure skin conductance responses (SCRs) that reflect sympathetic nervous system arousal. However, irregular respiration patterns and deep breaths can cause EDA fluctuations that are difficult to distinguish from genuine arousal related SCRs, presenting a methodological challenge that increases the likelihood of false positives in SCR analyses. Thus, it is crucial to identify respiration related artifacts in EDA data.
