We have prepared an atlas of the human cerebellum using high-resolution magnetic resonance-derived images warped into the proportional stereotaxic space of Talairach and Tournoux. Software that permits simultaneous visualization of the three cardinal planes facilitated the identification of the cerebellar fissures and lobules. A revised version of the(More)
The Home Visiting Exercise Project assessed the impact (benefit) of a weekly home exercise regimen for ambulatory patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). The exercises were taught by senior nursing students. In a case control study with 29 patients, half were assigned to a home-supervised exercise regimen and the other half were assigned a home visit(More)
The comparative efficacy of propranolol and amitriptyline in the prophylaxis of migraine headache was studied in 30 patients in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover design. Headache response to medication was measured monthly by compilation of headache scores derived from quantitative data recorded by patients in a daily diary; at each visit, Zung(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine if the effectiveness of propranolol hydrochloride and amitriptyline hydrochloride are correlated with blood levels and/or with standardized test of pharmacologic effect and to determine which clinical variables are predictors of response to one or the other medication. DESIGN Three-month modules of treatment with each drug and(More)
This communication explores the possibility that interleukin (IL)-1beta, a putative intermediary in the ovulatory process, may take part in the gonadotropin-driven midcycle diversion of ovarian carbohydrate metabolism toward glycolysis. We examined the effect of treatment with IL-1beta on glucose metabolism in aerobically cultured whole ovarian dispersates(More)
The ovarian granulosa cell has previously been shown to be a site of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) I production, reception, and action. It is the objective of this study to characterize in greater detail the soluble IGF binding activity released by this cell type. To this end, use was made of granulosa cells from immature diethylstilbestrol-treated rats.(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the effect of interleukin-1 beta (IL-1) on progesterone (P) biosynthesis and the potential intermediary involvement of prostaglandin (PG) E and nitric oxide (NO) in P accumulation in PMSG/hCG-primed rat corpora luteal (CL) cell cultures. Exposure of primed CL cells to IL-1 (10 ng/ml) for 48 h resulted in a 65-86%(More)
Intraovarian IL-1 has recently been implicated as a mediator in the ovulatory process. Since PA activation is an established component of the ovulatory cascade, consideration was given in this report to the possibility that IL-1 may modulate ovarian PA economy. Whole ovarian dispersates from immature rats (25-27-days-old) were cultured under serum-free(More)
